Guided Attention for FCN
Chainer implementation of Tell Me Where To Look. This is an experiment to apply Guided Attention Inference Network(GAIN) as presented in the paper to Fully Convolutional Networks(FCN) used for segmentation purposes. The trained FCN8s model is fine tuned using guided attention.
GAIN is based on supervising the attention maps that is produced when we train the network for
the task of interest.
Fully Convolutional Networks is a network architecture that consists of convolution layers followed by deconvolutions to
give the segmentation output
- We take the fully trained FCN8 network and add a average pooling and fully connected layers after its convolutional layers. We freeze the convolutional layers and
train the fully connected networks to classify for the objects. We do this in order to get GradCAMs for a particular class to be later used during GAIN
- Next we train the network as per the GAIN update rule. However in this implementation I have also considered the segmentation loss along with the
GAIN updates/loss. This is because, I found using only the GAIN updates though did lead to convergence of losses, but also resulted in quite a significant dip in segmentation accuracies. In this step, the fully connected ayers are freezed and are not updated.
For classification training

|Implementation||Accuracy||Accuracy Class||Mean IU||FWAVACC||Model File|
|Experimental||90.5962||80.4099||64.6869||83.9952||To make public soon|
How to use
pip install chainer pip install chainercv pip install cupy pip install fcn
For training the classifier, download. the pretrained FCN8s chainer model
train_classifier.py --modelfile <path to the downloaded pre trained model>
For GAIN updates,
train_GAIN.py --mmodelfile <path to the trained model with trained classifier>
The accuracy of original implementation is computed with (
evaluate.py <path to the trained fcn8 model>) which has been borrowed from wkentaro's implementation
You might run into an error of " xxx.txt file not found " while running this script. To solve this, at the place where your
fcn library is installed, get the missing file from the fcn repository over github, and take care to put the exisiting file by making the same directory structure as asked in the error message.
