This paper introduces a generic method which enables to use conventional deep neural networks as end-to-end one-class classifiers. The method is based on splitting given data from one class into two subsets. In one-class classification, only samples of one normal class are available for training. During inference, a closed and tight decision boundary around the training samples is sought which conventional binary or multi-class neural networks are not able to provide. By splitting data into

Various experiments on three well-known image datasets showed the effectiveness of the proposed method which outperformed seven baselines and had a better or comparable performance to the state-of-the-art.
