Deep Hybrid 2-D-3-D CNN Based on Dual Second-Order Attention With Camera Spectral Sensitivity Prior for Spectral Super-Resolution.

IEEE Trans Neural Netw Learn Syst 2021 Aug 4;PP. Epub 2021 Aug 4.

A largely ignored fact in spectral super-resolution (SSR) is that the subsistent mapping methods neglect the auxiliary prior of camera spectral sensitivity (CSS) and only pay attention to wider or deeper network framework design while ignoring to excavate the spatial and spectral dependencies among intermediate layers, hence constraining representational capability of convolutional neural networks (CNNs). To conquer these drawbacks, we propose a novel deep hybrid 2-D-3-D CNN based on dual second-order attention with CSS prior (HSACS), which can excavate sufficient spatial-spectral context information. Specifically, dual second-order attention embedded in the residual block for more powerful spatial-spectral feature representation and relation learning is composed of a brand new trainable 2-D second-order channel attention (SCA) or 3-D second-order band attention (SBA) and a structure tensor attention (STA).

Bioacoustic classification of avian calls from raw sound waveforms with an open-source deep learning architecture.

Sci Rep 2021 Aug 3;11(1):15733. Epub 2021 Aug 3.

School of Engineering and Technology, Central Queensland University, North Rockhampton, QLD, Australia.

The use of autonomous recordings of animal sounds to detect species is a popular conservation tool, constantly improving in fidelity as audio hardware and software evolves. Current classification algorithms utilise sound features extracted from the recording rather than the sound itself, with varying degrees of success. Neural networks that learn directly from the raw sound waveforms have been implemented in human speech recognition but the requirements of detailed labelled data have limited their use in bioacoustics.
