I have to do a project that detects fabric surface errors and I will use machine learning methods to deal with it. I have a dataset that includes around six thousand fabric surface images with the size 256x256. This dataset is labeled, one thousand of it was labeled as NOK that means fabric surface with error, and the rest was labeled as OK which means fabric surface without an error.
I read a lot of papers about fabric surface error detection with machine learning methods, and I saw that "autoencoders" are used to do it. But as I saw that the autoencoders are used in unsupervised learning models without labels. I need to do it with supervised learning models. Is there any model that can I use for fabric surface error detection with images in the supervised learning? Can be autoencoders used for it or is there any better model to do it?

  • $\begingroup$ Have you already thought about Convolutional NNs? (CNNs) It sounds like you have a reasonable amount of data, so you even could start from scratch with a custom built CNN. If you are lucky maybe you can find a pretrained model for a similar problem, which you can build on. $\endgroup$ – jottbe Dec 1 '20 at 20:47
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks a lot. I am working on the CNNs models right now. I think it can be useful for this project. $\endgroup$ – Ali Haydar Kurban Dec 4 '20 at 19:27
