Towards infield, live plant phenotyping using a reduced-parameter CNN (2019)
Journal Article
Atanbori, J., French, A. P., & Pridmore, T. P. (2020). Towards infield, live plant phenotyping using a reduced-parameter CNN. Machine Vision and Applications, 31(1), https://doi.org/10.1007/s00138-019-01051-7

© 2019, The Author(s). There is an increase in consumption of agricultural produce as a result of the rapidly growing human population, particularly in developing nations. This has triggered high-quality plant phenotyping research to help with the br... Read More about Towards infield, live plant phenotyping using a reduced-parameter CNN.

Towards Low-Cost Image-based Plant Phenotyping using Reduced-Parameter CNN (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Atanbori, J., Chen, F., French, A. P., & Pridmore, T. (2018). Towards Low-Cost Image-based Plant Phenotyping using Reduced-Parameter CNN. In Proceedings of BMVC 2018

Segmentation is the core of most plant phenotyping applications. Current state-of-the-art plant phenotyping applications rely on deep Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs). However, these networks have many layers and parameters, increasing training a... Read More about Towards Low-Cost Image-based Plant Phenotyping using Reduced-Parameter CNN.

Classification of bird species from video using appearance and motion features (2018)
Journal Article
Atanbori, J., Duan, W., Shaw, E., Appiah, K., & Dickinson, P. (2018). Classification of bird species from video using appearance and motion features. Ecological informatics, 48, 12-23. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecoinf.2018.07.005

The monitoring of bird populations can provide important information on the state of sensitive ecosystems; however, the manual collection of reliable population data is labour-intensive, time-consuming, and potentially error prone. Automated monitori... Read More about Classification of bird species from video using appearance and motion features.

A computer vision approach to classification of birds in flight from video sequences (2015)
Conference Proceeding
