Raw Produce Quality Detection with Shifted Window Self-Attention. (arXiv:2112.13845v1 [cs.CV])

Global food insecurity is expected to worsen in the coming decades with the
accelerated rate of climate change and the rapidly increasing population. In
this vein, it is important to remove inefficiencies at every level of food
production. The recent advances in deep learning can help reduce such
inefficiencies, yet their application has not yet become mainstream throughout
the industry, inducing economic costs at a massive scale. To this point, modern
techniques such as CNNs (Convolutional Neural Networks) have been applied to
RPQD (Raw Produce Quality Detection) tasks. On the other hand, Transformer’s
successful debut in the vision among other modalities led us to expect a better
performance with these Transformer-based models in RPQD. In this work, we
exclusively investigate the recent state-of-the-art Swin (Shifted Windows)
Transformer which computes self-attention in both intra- and inter-window
fashion. We compare Swin Transformer against CNN models on four RPQD image
datasets, each containing different kinds of raw produce: fruits and
vegetables, fish, pork, and beef. We observe that Swin Transformer not only
achieves better or competitive performance but also is data- and
compute-efficient, making it ideal for actual deployment in real-world setting.
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first large-scale empirical study on
RPQD task, which we hope will gain more attention in future works.
