|Using human perception to train better CNNs Traditional deep learning is a data-driven process. Images are shown to a CNN and it is expected to learn rules that enable it to perform a task efficiently on new unseen images after training. The problem with this approach is that the model can only learn from the supplied training data. Potentially, this training data is not representative of the entire domain. Although the model classifies training images near perfectly, this learned rule may actually just be coincidental to this data, rather than applying to all images in that task. Additionally, the decision making of these models can be ambiguous and not explainable, meaning it can be difficult to trust the classifications. Humans, however, possess great ability to generalize what they have seen in the past and apply it to the current task. Humans don’t focus on incidental features in data, instead we tend to look at more obvious occurrences that can be easily explained. This talk will cover two of my recent works where we investigated whether the incorporation of human perception into the training of deep learning models results in better performance on unseen data. Each of these works approach this in different ways, both showing promising results. In the second work, we also investigate whether the models we have trained in this way are more “human-like” in their decision making. These approaches are applied to the domains of iris presentation attack detection and synthetically generated face detection (see www.thispersondoesnotexist.com for examples of synthetically generated faces).|
