Recognition Of Surface Defects On Steel Sheet Using Transfer Learning

  title={Recognition Of Surface Defects On Steel Sheet Using Transfer Learning},
  author={Jingwen Fu and Xiaoyan Zhu and Yingbin Li},
Automatic defect recognition is one of the research hotspots in steel production, but most of the current methods mainly extract features manually and use machine learning classifiers to recognize defects, which cannot tackle the situation, where there are few data available to train and confine to a certain scene. Therefore, in this paper, a new approach is proposed which consists of part of pretrained VGG16 as a feature extractor and a new CNN neural network as a classifier to recognize the… Expand
