Deep Learning for Astronomical Object Classification: A Case Study

Ana Martinazzo, Mateus Espadoto, Nina Hirata

Abstract

With the emergence of photometric surveys in astronomy, came the challenge of processing and understanding an enormous amount of image data. In this paper, we systematically compare the performance of five popular ConvNet architectures when applied to three different image classification problems in astronomy to determine which architecture works best for each problem. We show that a VGG-style architecture pre-trained on ImageNet yields the best results on all studied problems, even when compared to architectures which perform much better on the ImageNet competition.
