Fine-Grain Few-Shot Vision via Domain Knowledge as Hyperspherical Priors

05/23/2020 ∙ by Bijan Haney, et al. ∙ 0

Prototypical networks have been shown to perform well at few-shot learning tasks in computer vision. Yet these networks struggle when classes are very similar to each other (fine-grain classification) and currently have no way of taking into account prior knowledge (through the use of tabular data). Using a spherical latent space to encode prototypes, we can achieve few-shot fine-grain classification by maximally separating the classes while incorporating domain knowledge as informative priors. We describe how to construct a hypersphere of prototypes that embed a-priori domain information, and demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach on challenging benchmark datasets for fine-grain classification, with top results for one-shot classification and 5x speedups in training time.
