Workshop Overview

It may be tempting to think that image classification is a solved problem. However, one only needs to look at the poor performance of existing techniques in domains with limited training data and with highly similar categories to see that this is not the case. In particular, fine-grained categorization, the precise differentiation between visually similar plant or animal species, disease of the retina, architectural styles, etc., is an extremely challenging problem, pushing the limits of both human and machine performance.

The 8th Workshop on Fine-Grained Visual Categorization (FGVC8) will explore topics related to fine-grained learning, self-supervised learning, semi-supervised learning, matching, localization, domain adaptation, transfer learning, few-shot learning, machine teaching, multimodal learning (e.g., audio and video), crowd-sourcing, and taxonomic prediction, all through the lens of fine-grained visual understanding.
