Overcoming Small Minirhizotron Datasets Using Transfer Learning

Abstract: Minirhizotron technology is widely used for studying the development of roots. Such systems collect visible-wavelength color imagery of plant roots in-situ by scanning an imaging system within a clear tube driven into the soil. Automated analysis of root systems… Read More

Root Identification in Minirhizotron Imagery with Multiple Instance Learning

Abstract: In this paper, multiple instance learning (MIL) algorithms to automatically perform root detection and segmentation in minirhizotron imagery using only image-level labels are proposed. Root and soil characteristics vary from location to location, thus, supervised machine learning approaches that… Read More
