Image Classification with Visual Explanation using Attention Map, Improved Accuracy for ResNet, Wide ResNet (WRN), DenseNet and ResNeXt
In this story, Attention Branch Network: Learning of Attention Mechanism for Visual Explanation, ABN, by Chubu University, is presented. In this paper:
- Attention Branch Network (ABN) is proposed, which extends a response-based visual explanation model by introducing a branch structure with an attention mechanism.
- ABN can be applicable to several image recognition tasks by introducing a branch for the attention mechanism and is trainable for visual explanation and image recognition in an end-to-end manner.
