Few-shot Object Detection via Feature Reweighting

Implementation for the paper:

Few-shot Object Detection via Feature Reweighting, ICCV 2019

Bingyi Kang*, Zhuang Liu*, Xin Wang, Fisher Yu, Jiashi Feng and Trevor Darrell (* equal contribution)

Our code is based on https://github.com/marvis/pytorch-yolo2 and developed with Python 2.7 & PyTorch 0.3.1.

Detection Examples (3-shot)

Sample novel class detection results with 3-shot training bounding boxes, on PASCAL VOC.

Model

The architecture of our proposed few-shot detection model. It consists of a meta feature extractor and a reweighting module. The feature extractor follows the one-stage detector architecture and directly regresses the objectness score (o), bounding box location (x, y, h, w) and classification score (c). The reweighting module is trained to map support samples of N classes to N reweighting vectors, each responsible for modulating the meta features to detect the objects from the corresponding class. A softmax based classification score normalization is imposed on the final output.

Abstract

Conventional training of a deep CNN based object detector demands a large number of bounding box annotations, which may be unavailable for rare categories. In this work we develop a few-shot object detector that can learn to detect novel objects from only a few annotated examples. Our proposed model leverages fully labeled base classes and quickly adapts to novel classes, using a meta feature learner and a reweighting module within a one-stage detection architecture. The feature learner extracts meta features that are generalizable to detect novel object classes, using training data from base classes with sufficient samples. The reweighting module transforms a few support examples from the novel classes to a global vector that indicates the importance or relevance of meta features for detecting the corresponding objects. These two modules, together with a detection prediction module, are trained end-to-end based on an episodic few-shot learning scheme and a carefully designed loss function. Through extensive experiments we demonstrate that our model outperforms well-established baselines by a large margin for few-shot object detection, on multiple datasets and settings. We also present analysis on various aspects of our proposed model, aiming to provide some inspiration for future few-shot detection works.

Training our model on VOC

  • $PROJ_ROOT : project root
  • $DATA_ROOT : dataset root

Prepare dataset

  • Get The Pascal VOC Data
cd $DATA_ROOT
wget https://pjreddie.com/media/files/VOCtrainval_11-May-2012.tar
wget https://pjreddie.com/media/files/VOCtrainval_06-Nov-2007.tar
wget https://pjreddie.com/media/files/VOCtest_06-Nov-2007.tar
tar xf VOCtrainval_11-May-2012.tar
tar xf VOCtrainval_06-Nov-2007.tar
tar xf VOCtest_06-Nov-2007.tar
  • Generate Labels for VOC
wget http://pjreddie.com/media/files/voc_label.py
python voc_label.py
cat 2007_train.txt 2007_val.txt 2012_*.txt > voc_train.txt
  • Generate per-class Labels for VOC (used for meta inpput)
cp $PROJ_ROOT/scripts/voc_label_1c.py $DATA_ROOT
cd $DATA_ROOT
python voc_label_1c.py
  • Generate few-shot image list To use our few-shot datasets
cd $PROJ_ROOT
python scripts/convert_fewlist.py 

You may want to generate new few-shot datasets Change the ''DROOT'' varibale in scripts/gen_fewlist.py to $DATA_ROOT

python scripts/gen_fewlist.py # might be different with ours
