Combalia M, Vilaplana V. Monte-Carlo Sampling Applied to Multiple Instance Learning for Histological Image Classification. In Deep Learning in Medical Image Analysis and Multimodal Learning for Clinical Decision Support. Springer International Publishing; 2018. pp. 274-281.


We propose a patch sampling strategy based on a sequential Monte-Carlo method for high resolution image classification in the context of Multiple Instance Learning. When compared with grid sampling and uniform sampling techniques, it achieves higher generalization performance. We validate the strategy on two artificial datasets and two histological datasets for breast cancer and sun exposure classification.
