Prompting-to-distill semantic knowledge for few-shot learning. (2024)
Journal Article
JI, H., GAO, Z., REN, J., WANG, X.-A., GAO, T., SUN, W. and MA, P. 2024. Prompting-to-distill semantic knowledge for few-shot learning. IEEE geoscience and remote sensing letters [online], Early Access. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1109/lgrs.2024.3414505

Recognizing visual patterns in low-data regime necessitates deep neural networks to glean generalized representations from limited training samples. In this paper, we propose a novel few-shot classification method, namely ProDFSL, leveraging multi-mo... Read More about Prompting-to-distill semantic knowledge for few-shot learning..
