Image segmentation when given masking information is incomplete

In my problem, there are about 5,000 training images and there are about 50~100 objects of identical type (or class) on average, per image. And for each training images, there is a partial mask ...

Validation set performance increasing even after seemingly overfit on training set

I am training a semi-supervised GAN network using data from multiple subjects. I separated the labeled and unlabeled data based on my subjects, so there is no leakage, while having much more unlabeled ...

Is training a CNN object detector on an image containing multiple targets that are not all annotated will teach it to miss targets?

I want to train a convolutional neural network for object detection (say YOLO) to detect faces. Consider this image: In this training image, I have many people, but only 2 of them are annotated. Is ...

Semi-supervised: Can I predict the label of purposely unlabelled observations?

Let's say I have a data set with of length N. A small proportion N2 is labeled. Can I remove some labels and then 'reverse' this action with a trained neural network? I could then use the same process ...
