Special Issues
Special Issue on Deep Learning with Small Samples
Submission Date: 2020-04-15

In machine learning and computer vision fields, due to the rapid development of deep learning, recent years have witnessed breakthroughs for large-sample classification tasks. However, it remains a persistent challenge to learn a deep neural network with good generalizability from only a small number of training samples. In fact, humans can easily learn the concept of a class from a small amount of data rather than from millions of data. Moreover, many types of real-world data are small in quantity and are expensive to collect and label. Motivated by this fact, research on deep learning with small samples becomes more and more prevalent in the communities of machine learning and computer vision, for example, researches focusing on one-shot classification, few-shot classification, as well as classification with small training samples. Recently, deep small-sample learning has achieved promising performance in certain small-sample problems, by transferring the "Knowledge" learned from other datasets containing rich labelled data or generating synthetic samples to approximate the distribution of real data. However, many challenging topics remain with small-sample deep leaning techniques, such as data augmentation, feature learning, prior construction, meta-learning, fine tuning, etc. Therefore, the goal of this special issue is to collect and publish the latest developments in various aspects of deep learning with small samples. The list of possible topics includes, but is not limited to: Survey/vision/review of deep learning with small samples Data augmentation methods for small-sample leaning Feature learning based methods small-sample leaning Regularization technology of deep model in small-sample leaning Ensemble learning based methods for small-sample learning Transfer learning methods for small-sample learning Semi-supervised learning methods for small-sample learning Prior based methods for few-shot learning Meta-leaning based methods for few-shot learning Fine-tuning based methods for small-sample learning Theoretical analysis for small-sample learning Applications of small-sample learning on person re-identification, object recognition, etc.

Special Issue on Deep Dictionary Learning: Algorithm, Theory and Application
Submission Date: 2020-04-15

Dictionary Learning (DL) is a long-standing popular topic for visual image representation due to its great success to image restoration, de-noising and classification, etc. DL aims at representing data using a linear combination of a few highly correlated atoms in a dictionary D. But how to obtain a desired dictionary from inputs still remains a challenging task to date. It is noteworthy that most existing DL algorithms represent data using a single-layer framework, so they usually fail to obtain the deep feature representations with more useful and valuable hidden information discovered. In recent years, with the fast development of deep learning and multi-layer neural networks, it will be helpful to propose deeper or multi-layer DL frameworks for representation learning. Although certain efforts have been made to incorporate the deep learning into the DL, most designs of so-called deep dictionary learning (DDL) algorithms are still less straightforward. For example, some existing algorithms feed deep features of the deep networks into DL for representation learning, or perform the DL first and then use the reconstructed data for deep learning. As such, it is now necessary to integrate the DL with deep networks, and explore the advanced algorithms, theories and optimization approaches for the deep dictionary learning. In this special issue, we invite contributions from diverse research fields, such as deep representation learning, image processing, and computer vision, etc., developing novel algorithms from high-dimensional data. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Survey/vision/review of dictionary learning Robust dictionary learning Online dictionary learning Deep/multi-layer dictionary learning Convolutional dictionary learning Structured dictionary learning Bayesian dictionary learning Coupled/semi-coupled dictionary learning Optimization for dictionary learning/deep dictionary learning Applications to image processing
