Survey: Image Mixing and Deleting for Data Augmentation

06/13/2021 ∙ by Humza Naveed, et al. ∙ 0

Data augmentation has been widely used to improve deep nerual networks performance. Numerous approaches are suggested, for example, dropout, regularization and image augmentation, to avoid over-ftting and enhancing generalization of neural networks. One of the sub-area within data augmentation is image mixing and deleting. This specific type of augmentation either mixes two images or delete image regions to hide or make certain characteristics of images confusing for the network to force it to emphasize on overall structure of object in image. The model trained with this approach has shown to perform and generalize well as compared to one trained without imgage mixing or deleting. Additional benefit achieved with this method of training is robustness against image corruptions. Due to its low compute cost and success in recent past, many techniques of image mixing and deleting are proposed. This paper provides detailed review on these devised approaches, dividing augmentation strategies in three main categories cut and delete, cut and mix and mixup. The second part of paper emprically evaluates these approaches for image classification, finegrained image recognition and object detection where it is shown that this category of data augmentation improves the overall performance for deep neural networks.
