Continual Learning for Dense Labeling of Satellite Images


n dense labeling problem, the major drawback of the convolutional neural networks is their inability to learn new classes without affecting performance for the old classes on the data, having no annotations for the previous classes. In this work, we address the issue of adding new classes continually to the already trained network from a stream of data. Our approach comprises two main components: adaptation and remembering. For adaptation, we keep a clone of the previously trained network, which serves as a memory for the old classes in absence of their annotations on the new data. The updated network learns new as well as old classes on the current data using output of the memory network and the new groundtruth. For remembering, we store a little portion of the previous data, from which we systematically feed samples to the updated network during training. Our results prove that segmentation capabilities for the new classes can be added to the already trained network without catastrophically forgetting the previously learned information.
