Abstract: We present a histogram layer for artificial neural networks (ANNs). An essential aspect of texture analysis is the extraction of features that describe the distribution of values in local spatial regions. The proposed histogram layer directly computes the spatial… Read More
Congratulations to our labmate, Sarah Walker! Sarah presented her work, titled “Divergence Regulated Encoder Network for Joint Dimensionality Reduction and Classification” at UF’s 2021 Undergraduate Research Virtual Symposium. The virtual symposium featured outstanding undergraduate researchers across all colleges at UF.… Read More
Abstract: In this paper, we investigate performing joint dimensionality reduction and classification using a novel histogram neural network. Motivated by a popular dimensionality reduction approach, t-Distributed Stochastic Neighbor Embedding (t-SNE), our proposed method incorporates a classification loss computed on samples… Read More
Congratulations to our labmates: Sarah Walker, Joshua Peeples, Jeff Dale, James Keller and Alina Zare! Their paper, “Explainable Systematic Analysis for Synthetic Aperture Sonar Imagery” was recently accepted to the IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS). In their… Read More
Abstract: In this work, we present an in-depth and systematic analysis using tools such as local interpretable model-agnostic explanations (LIME) and divergence measures to analyze what changes lead to improvement in performance in fine tuned models for synthetic aperture sonar… Read More

Congratulations to GatorSense alumna, Xiaoxiao Du! Her paper, titled “Multi-resolution Multi-modal Sensor Fusion For Remote Sensing Data with Label Uncertainty”, was recently published in IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing. Check it out here!
Abstract: In remote sensing, it is often challenging to acquire or collect a large dataset that is accurately labeled. This difficulty is usually due to several issues, including but not limited to the study site’s spatial area and accessibility, errors… Read More
Congratulations to our labmates, Hudanyun Sheng and Princess Lyons, for successful Master’s defenses! Hudanyun conducted work on “Switchgrass Genotype Classification using Hyperspectral Imagery”, while Princess investigated “Anomaly and Target Detection in Synthetic Aperture Sonar”. Great job, you two!
