Shared Manifold Learning Using a Triplet Network for Multiple Sensor Translation and Fusion with Missing Data

Abstract: Heterogeneous data fusion can enhance the robustness and accuracy of an algorithm on a given task. However, due to the difference in various modalities, aligning the sensors and embedding their information into discriminative and compact representations is challenging. In… Read More

Connecting The Past And The Present: Histogram Layers For Texture Analysis

Abstract: Feature engineering often plays a vital role in the fields of computer vision and machine learning. A few common examples of engineered features include histogram of oriented gradients (HOG) (Dalal and Triggs, 2005), local binary patterns (LBP) (Ojala et… Read More

Bag-level Classification Network for Infrared Target Detection

Abstract: Aided target detection in infrared data has proven an important area of investigation for both military and civilian applications. While target detection at the object or pixel-level has been explored extensively, existing approaches require precisely-annotated data which is often… Read More

Computer vision for assessing species color pattern variation from web-based community science images

Abstract: Openly available community science digital vouchers provide a wealth of data to study phenotypic change across space and time. However, extracting phenotypic data from these resources requires significant human effort. Here, we demonstrate a workflow and computer vision model… Read More

PRMI: A Dataset of Minirhizotron Images for Diverse Plant Root Study

Abstract: Understanding a plant’s root system architecture (RSA) is crucial for a variety of plant science problem domains including sustainability and climate adaptation. Minirhizotron (MR) technology is a widely-used approach for phenotyping RSA non-destructively by capturing root imagery over time.… Read More

Image-to-Height Domain Translation for Synthetic Aperture Sonar

Abstract: Synthetic aperture sonar (SAS) intensity statistics are dependent upon the sensing geometry at the time of capture. Estimating bathymetry from acoustic surveys is challenging. While several methods have been proposed to estimate seabed relief via intensity, we develop the… Read More
