WEAKLY-LABELED RAND INDEX ACCEPTED TO IGARSS!
Congratulations to our labmates: Dylan Stewart, Anna Hampton, Alina Zare, Jeff Dale and James Keller! Their paper, “The Weakly-Labeled Rand Index” was recently accepted to the IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS). In their paper, the authors introduce… Read More
THE WEAKLY-LABELED RAND INDEX
Abstract: Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) surveys produce imagery with large regions of transition between seabed types. Due to these regions, it is difficult to label and segment the imagery and, furthermore, challenging to score the image segmentations appropriately. While there… Read More
EVALUATION OF POSTHARVEST SENESCENCE IN BROCCOLI VIA HYPERSPECTRAL IMAGING
Abstract: Fresh fruit and vegetables are invaluable for human health; however, their quality often deteriorates before reaching consumers due to ongoing biochemical processes and compositional changes. We currently lack any objective indices which indicate the freshness of fruit or vegetables… Read More

WEAKLY SUPERVISED MINIRHIZOTRON IMAGE SEGMENTATION WITH MIL-CAM
Abstract: We present a multiple instance learning class activation map (MIL-CAM) approach for pixel-level minirhizotron image segmentation given weak image-level labels. Minirhizotrons are used to image plant roots in situ. Minirhizotron imagery is often composed of soil containing a few… Read More
