Multiple Instance Choquet Integral with Binary Fuzzy Measures for Remote Sensing Classifier Fusion with Imprecise Labels

Abstract: Classifier fusion methods integrate complementary information from multiple classifiers or detectors and can aid remote sensing applications such as target detection and hyperspectral image analysis. The Choquet integral (CI), parameterized by fuzzy measures (FMs), has been widely used in… Read More

Comparison of Hand-held WEMI Target Detection Algorithms

Abstract: Wide-band Electromagnetic Induction Sensors (WEMI) have been used for a number of years in subsurface detection of explosive hazards. While WEMI sensors have proven effective at localizing objects exhibiting large magnetic responses, detecting objects lacking or containing very low… Read More

Complex Scene Classification of PoLSAR Imagery Based on a Self-Paced Learning Approach

Abstract: Existing polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (PolSAR) image classification methods cannot achieve satisfactory performance on complex scenes characterized by several types of land cover with significant levels of noise or similar scattering properties across land cover types. Hence, we propose… Read More

Comparison of Prescreening Algorithms for Target Detection in Synthetic Aperture Sonar Imagery

Abstract: Automated anomaly and target detection are commonly used as a prescreening step within a larger target detection and target classification framework to find regions of interest for further analysis. A number of anomaly and target detection algorithms have been… Read More

Multiple Instance Choquet Integral Classifier Fusion and Regression for Remote Sensing Applications

Abstract: In classifier (or regression) fusion the aim is to combine the outputs of several algorithms to boost overall performance. Standard supervised fusion algorithms often require accurate and precise training labels. However, accurate labels may be difficult to obtain in… Read More
