  title={Pre-trained Models for Sonar Images},
  author={Matias Valdenegro-Toro and Alan Preciado-Grijalva and Bilal Wehbe},
Machine learning and neural networks are now ubiquitous in sonar perception, but it lags behind the computer vision field due to the lack of data and pre-trained models specifically for sonar images. In this paper we present the Marine Debris Turntable dataset and produce pre-trained neural networks trained on this dataset, meant to fill the gap of missing pre-trained models for sonar images. We train Resnet 20, MobileNets, DenseNet121, SqueezeNet, MiniXception, and an Autoencoder, over several… Expand


Best practices in convolutional networks for forward-looking sonar image recognition
This work evaluates three CNN models, namely one based on LeNet, and two based on the Fire module from SqueezeNet, respectively, and finds that transfer learning with an SVM works very well, even when the train and transfer sets have no classes in common, and high classification performance can be obtainedEven when the target dataset is small.

Object Recognition in Forward Looking Sonar Images using Transfer Learning
This work has developed a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) based classifier for FLS-images and compared its performance to classification using classical methods and hand-crafted features and found it to be satisfactory. Expand
CNN Features Off-the-Shelf: An Astounding Baseline for Recognition
A series of experiments conducted for different recognition tasks using the publicly available code and model of the OverFeat network which was trained to perform object classification on ILSVRC13 suggest that features obtained from deep learning with convolutional nets should be the primary candidate in most visual recognition tasks.

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.

Automatic Target Recognition in Forward-Looking Sonar Images using Transfer Learning
Automatic target recognition (ATR) in the sonar image is usually divided into two steps: The localization part aims to locate the region which most likely contains the targets. The classificationExpand
What makes ImageNet good for transfer learning?
The overall findings suggest that most changes in the choice of pre-training data long thought to be critical do not significantly affect transfer performance. Expand
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.

Deep Neural Networks for Marine Debris Detection in Sonar Images
The results show that for the evaluated tasks, DNNs are a superior technique than the corresponding state of the art, particularly for the matching and detection proposal tasks. Expand
