Self-supervised learning techniques on images are making steady progress. Here are Masked Auto Encoders: https://t.co/eZpzogEUsZ I's impressive how much the neural network can reconstruct.

The most interesting part is that a single neuron activated by the GCU can learn to represent the XOR logical function, something that is known to be impossible for other artificial neuron designs (you need multiple layers with those). Explanatory figures from the paper:

There are people experimenting with cosines as activation functions! It sounds crazy but it's serious research: GCU(x) = x.cos(x) https://t.co/Y8khWkBN6y

Also interesting: the dataset is composed of sequences of underwater images taken at various times and locations around the Great Barrier Reef. Vanilla RetinaNet-style single-models will probably not cut it. The time and sequence information are very valuable.

An interesting twist in this competition are the "Performance prizes": https://t.co/bwiuX2Yl4r Smaller and faster models can also win, provided they are within 10% of the detection performance of the best model.

A new Kaggle competition to detect invasive "crown of thorns" starfish, and help protect the great barrier reef: https://t.co/3wHgs7gjWJ
