A Novel Global Spatial Attention Mechanism in Convolutional Neural Network for Medical Image Classification

31 Jul 2020Linchuan XuJun HuangAtsushi NitandaRyo AsaokaKenji Yamanishi

Spatial attention has been introduced to convolutional neural networks (CNNs) for improving both their performance and interpretability in visual tasks including image classification. The essence of the spatial attention is to learn a weight map which represents the relative importance of activations within the same layer or channel... (read more)
