KNN-enhanced Deep Learning Against Noisy Labels

12/08/2020 ∙ by Shuyu Kong, et al. ∙ 8

Supervised learning on Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) is data hungry. Optimizing performance of DNN in the presence of noisy labels has become of paramount importance since collecting a large dataset will usually bring in noisy labels. Inspired by the robustness of K-Nearest Neighbors (KNN) against data noise, in this work, we propose to apply deep KNN for label cleanup. Our approach leverages DNNs for feature extraction and KNN for ground-truth label inference. We iteratively train the neural network and update labels to simultaneously proceed towards higher label recovery rate and better classification performance. Experiment results show that under the same setting, our approach outperforms existing label correction methods and achieves better accuracy on multiple datasets, e.g.,76.78
