In this story, CutMix: Regularization Strategy to Train Strong Classifiers with Localizable Features (CutMix), by NAVER Corp., LINE Plus Corp., and Yonsei University, is shortly presented. In this paper:
- Patches are cut and pasted among training images where the ground truth labels are also mixed proportionally to the area of the patches.
- By making efficient use of training pixels and retaining the regularization effect of regional dropout, CutMix consistently outperforms the state-of-the-art augmentation strategies.
