Collecting a large number of reliable training images annotated by multiple land-cover class labels in the framework of multi-label classification is time-consuming and costly in remote sensing (RS). To address this problem, publicly available thematic products are often used for annotating RS images with zero-labeling-cost. However, such an approach may result in constructing a training set with noisy multi-labels, distorting the learning process. To address this problem, we propose a…

Multi-Label Noise Robust Collaborative Learning Method for Remote Sensing Image Classification

A novel multi-label noise robust collaborative learning (RCML) method to alleviate the negative effects of multi- label noise during the training phase of a CNN model and makes no prior assumption about the type of noise in the training set.



Deep Residual Learning for Image Recognition

This work presents a residual learning framework to ease the training of networks that are substantially deeper than those used previously, and provides comprehensive empirical evidence showing that these residual networks are easier to optimize, and can gain accuracy from considerably increased depth.

A Kernel Two-Sample Test

This work proposes a framework for analyzing and comparing distributions, which is used to construct statistical tests to determine if two samples are drawn from different distributions, and presents two distribution free tests based on large deviation bounds for the maximum mean discrepancy (MMD).

Densely Connected Convolutional Networks

The Dense Convolutional Network (DenseNet), which connects each layer to every other layer in a feed-forward fashion, and has several compelling advantages: they alleviate the vanishing-gradient problem, strengthen feature propagation, encourage feature reuse, and substantially reduce the number of parameters.

BigEarthNet-MM: A Large-Scale, Multimodal, Multilabel Benchmark Archive for Remote Sensing Image Classification and Retrieval [Software and Data Sets]

The multi-modal BigEarthNet (BigEarthNet-MM) benchmark archive made up of 590,326 pairs of Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 image patches is presented to support the deep learning studies in multi- modal multi-label remote sensing image retrieval and classification.

Learning Multi-Label Aerial Image Classification Under Label Noise: A Regularization Approach Using Word Embeddings

Results indicate that networks trained using the proposed regularization method outperform those directly learned from noisy labels and that the benefits increase proportionally to the amount of noise present.

A Simple Probabilistic Method for Deep Classification under Input-Dependent Label Noise

By tuning the softmax temperature, this work improves accuracy, log-likelihood and calibration on both image classification benchmarks with controlled label noise as well as Imagenet-21k which has naturally occurring label noise.

A Comparative Study of Deep Learning Loss Functions for Multi-Label Remote Sensing Image Classification

This paper analyzes and compares different deep learning loss functions in the framework of multi-label remote sensing (RS) image scene classification problems and some guidelines are derived for a proper selection of a loss function in multi- label RS scene classification Problems.
