Confident Coreset for Active Learning in Medical Image Analysis
The first two authors contributed equally.
|Recent advances in deep learning have resulted in great successes in various applications. Although semi-supervised or unsupervised learning methods have been widely investigated, the performance of deep neural networks highly depends on the annotated data. The problem is that the budget for annotation is usually limited due to the annotation time and expensive annotation cost in medical data. Active learning is one of the solutions to this problem where an active learner is designed to indicate which samples need to be annotated to effectively train a target model. In this paper, we propose a novel active learning method, confident coreset, which considers both uncertainty and distribution for effectively selecting informative samples. By comparative experiments on two medical image analysis tasks, we show that our method outperforms other active learning methods.|
