Weakly Supervised Learning for Target Detection in Remote Sensing Images

In this letter, we develop a novel framework of leveraging weakly supervised learning techniques to efficiently detect targets from remote sensing images, which enables us to reduce the tedious manual annotation for collecting training data while maintaining the detection accuracy to large extent.

The proposed framework consists of a weakly supervised training procedure to yield the detectors and an effective scheme to detect targets from testing images. Comprehensive evaluations on three benchmarks which have different spatial resolutions and contain different types of targets as well as the comparisons with traditional supervised learning schemes demonstrate the efficiency and effectiveness of the proposed framework.
