Filtration and Distillation: Enhancing Region Attention for Fine-Grained Visual Categorization

Chuanbin Liu, Hongtao Xie, Zheng-Jun Zha, Lingfeng Ma, Lingyun Yu, Yongdong Zhang
Delicate attention of the discriminative regions plays a critical role in Fine-Grained Visual Categorization (FGVC).  ...  To address the above issues, in this paper, we propose a novel "Filtration and Distillation Learning" (FDL) model to enhance the region attention of discriminate parts for FGVC.  ...  Conclusion In this paper, we present a novel Filtration and Distillation Learning (FDL) attention model to enhance region attention for fine-grained visual categorization.  ...
