P2.18s Using Satellite Data to Locate and Phenotype Plants from Space

This project aims to develop sample efficient AI algorithms which require less ground truth observations to train accurate models. Both semi-supervised and unsupervised training methods will be adopted to train highly effective feature extractors using a minimum of labelled data. Highly successful semi-supervised learning algorithms, and unsupervised/self-supervised methods (which have achieved very high accuracy with just a few labelled examples or no labels at all (respectively) in generic image classification) will be customized and these methods extended for satellite images.
