Key Details

PDiscoNet discovers object parts using only image labels, no part annotations

It uses losses to make parts compact, distinct, invariant, and present

The parts form a bottleneck for fine-grained image classification

Results show it finds better parts than previous methods

The parts provide interpretability without hurting classification

AI generated summary

Discovering object parts for fine-grained image recognition

This paper proposes a deep learning method called PDiscoNet that discovers semantically consistent object parts from images, using only image-level labels. It encourages parts to be compact, distinct, invariant to image transforms, and present across some images. This provides interpretability for fine-grained models, without needing part annotations.
