Project Update February 22nd
I did not blog about the project last week.
This week we met with a grad research student, Ayotunde. He provided some great insights and assisted us in moving further with the project. I was able to generate over 1000 images from one positive sample image.
This breakthrough will allow us to provide more sample images when training our classifier. The issue that prevented us from properly detecting parts of the ear was the poor accuracy of our cascade. During training our sample size was too small to go through many stages. Once I can create a larger amount of negative samples I will be able to build a more accurate cascade.
