A Three-Feature Model to Predict Colour Change Blindness

Change blindness is a striking shortcoming of our visual system which is exploited in the popular "Spot the difference" game. It makes us unable to notice large visual changes happening right before our eyes and illustrates the fact that we see much less than we think we do. We introduce a fully automated model to predict colour change blindness in cartoon images based on two low-level image features and observer experience. Using linear regression with only three parameters, the predictions of the proposed model correlate significantly with measured detection times. We also demonstrate the efficacy of the model to classify stimuli in terms of difficulty.

Colorectal polyps are important precursors to colon cancer, the third most common cause of cancer mortality for both men and women. It is a disease where early detection is of crucial importance. Colonoscopy is commonly used for early detection of cancer and precancerous pathology. It is a demanding procedure requiring significant amount of time from specialized physicians and nurses, in addition to a significant miss-rates of polyps by specialists. Automated polyp detection in colonoscopy videos has been demonstrated to be a promising way to handle this problem. {However, polyps detection is a challenging problem due to the availability of limited amount of training data and large appearance variations of polyps. To handle this problem, we propose a novel deep learning method Y-Net that consists of two encoder networks with a decoder network. Our proposed Y-Net method} relies on efficient use of pre-trained and un-trained models with novel sum-skip-concatenation operations. Each of the encoders are trained with encoder specific learning rate along the decoder. Compared with the previous methods employing hand-crafted features or 2-D/3-D convolutional neural network, our approach outperforms state-of-the-art methods for polyp detection with 7.3% F1-score and 13% recall improvement.
