Keyword(s) Class imbalance - Deep learning - Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

We introduce recommendations to train a Convolutional Neural Network for grid-based detection on a dataset that has a substantial class imbalance. These include curriculum learning, hard negative mining, a special border class, and more. We evaluate the recommendations on the problem of animal detection in aerial images, where we obtain an increase in precision from 9% to 40% at high recalls, compared to state-of-the-art.
