Multi-Label Image Classification via Knowledge Distillation from Weakly-Supervised Detection

This repository contains the code (in Caffe) for the paper:

Weakly Supervised Detection (WSD)

  • We use WSDDN1 as the detection model, i.e., the teacher model.

  • Because the released code of WSDDN is implemented using Matlab (based on MatConvNet), we first reproduce this paper using Caffe.

Training & Test

    ./wsddn/wsddn_train(deploy).prototxt
  • VGG16 is used as the backbone model.

  • For training, we did not use spatial regularizer. More details can be referred in the paper.

  • For testing, you can use Pycaffe or Matcaffe.

Multi-Label Image Classification (MLIC)

  • The MLIC model in our framework, i.e., the student model, is very compact for efficiency.

  • It is constituted by a popular CNN model (VGG16, as the backbone model) following a fully connected layer (as the classifier).

  • The backbone model of the student could be different from the teacher's.

Cross-Task Knowledge Distillation

Stage 1: Feature-Level Knowledge Transfer

    ./kd/train_stage1.prototxt

Stage 2: Prediction-Level Knowledge Transfer

    ./kd/train_stage2.prototxt

Datalist preparation is the same as mentioned in WSD. More details can be referred in our paper.

Implementation

Please refer to caffe-MLIC for details.
