Coupling Rendering and Generative Adversarial Networks for Artificial SAS Image Generation

no code implementations13 Sep 2019 Albert Reed, Isaac Gerg, John McKay, Daniel Brown, David Williams, Suren Jayasuriya

Acquisition of Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) datasets is bottlenecked by the costly deployment of SAS imaging systems, and even when data acquisition is possible, the data is often skewed towards containing barren seafloor rather than objects of interest.

Bridging the Gap: Simultaneous Fine Tuning for Data Re-Balancing

no code implementations8 Jan 2018 John McKay, Isaac Gerg, Vishal Monga

There are many real-world classification problems wherein the issue of data imbalance (the case when a data set contains substantially more samples for one/many classes than the rest) is unavoidable.

Fast Stochastic Hierarchical Bayesian MAP for Tomographic Imaging

no code implementations7 Jul 2017 John McKay, Raghu G. Raj, Vishal Monga

The resulting algorithm, fast stochastic HB-MAP (fsHBMAP), takes dramatically fewer operations while retaining high reconstruction quality.

What's Mine is Yours: Pretrained CNNs for Limited Training Sonar ATR

no code implementations29 Jun 2017 John McKay, Isaac Gerg, Vishal Monga, Raghu Raj

Finding mines in Sonar imagery is a significant problem with a great deal of relevance for seafaring military and commercial endeavors.
