One-Shot Learning in Discriminative Neural Networks

07/18/2017 ∙ by Jordan Burgess, et al. ∙ 0

We consider the task of one-shot learning of visual categories. In this paper we explore a Bayesian procedure for updating a pretrained convnet to classify a novel image category for which data is limited. We decompose this convnet into a fixed feature extractor and softmax classifier. We assume that the target weights for the new task come from the same distribution as the pretrained softmax weights, which we model as a multivariate Gaussian. By using this as a prior for the new weights, we demonstrate competitive performance with state-of-the-art methods whilst also being consistent with 'normal' methods for training deep networks on large data.
