A Simple yet Effective Baseline for Robust Deep Learning with Noisy Labels

20 Sep 2019  ·  Yucen Luo, Jun Zhu, Tomas Pfister ·

Recently deep neural networks have shown their capacity to memorize training data, even with noisy labels, which hurts generalization performance. To mitigate this issue, we provide a simple but effective baseline method that is robust to noisy labels, even with severe noise. Our objective involves a variance regularization term that implicitly penalizes the Jacobian norm of the neural network on the whole training set (including the noisy-labeled data), which encourages generalization and prevents overfitting to the corrupted labels. Experiments on both synthetically generated incorrect labels and realistic large-scale noisy datasets demonstrate that our approach achieves state-of-the-art performance with a high tolerance to severe noise.
