Evaluating Machine Learning Models for Semantic Segmentation over Cloud Images for Classification
Date of Award
Computer and Information Science
Due to the increasing number of available approaches nowadays, choosing the most accurate image semantic segmentation model has become hard. The purpose of this research is to find the best-performing image semantic segmentation model for Cloud classification. For the purpose of this study, a data set of cloud images from the Max Planck Institute for meteorology is used. These images were taken from the by two NASA space satellite.Three main models UNet, PSPNet and FPN were used in combination of 4 differ-ent encoder Inception-ResNet-v2, MobileNet-v2, ResNet-34, and ResNet 101. After training all the models in the Mississippi Center for Super Computing, the results were plotted. Over-all the models turned out broadly similar to each other. Even so, the FPN model with the MobileNet-v2 encoder backbone stood out first followed by the UNet model with the Inception-ResNet-v2 encoder backbone in second place.
