In another experiment, we use MIS-Boost in a large-scale image classification task and visualize samples of the instances that are closest to the learned prototype(s).
MIS-Boost: Multiple Instance Selection Boosting
The results of this experiment suggest that the learned prototypes are not only discriminative but also visually meaningful, that is they are similar to the parts of image that are relevant for classification.
MIS-Boost: Multiple Instance Selection Boosting
In this section, we evaluate the performance of MIS-Boost on this large-scale image classification dataset, and visualize the selected instances, i.e. those instances that are closest to the learned prototypes to see if they overlap with the object(s) of interest.
MIS-Boost: Multiple Instance Selection Boosting
Next, we visualize the selected instances in each image that are closest to the learned prototypes.
MIS-Boost: Multiple Instance Selection Boosting
We also applied MIS-Boost to large-scale image classification, where we showed that the automatically selected prototypes map to visually meaningful image regions.

Of these, the latter two ob jects are flagged by Gorlova et al. (2007) as having possibly unreliable 8.0 µm measurements, due to the presence of nearby sources or other image features which might contribute to the measured flux (confirmed by visual examination of our I -band images).
