Today, the amount of image categories and labels for visual recognition is growing at an astonishing rate, and it is becoming increasingly impractical to keep up a high level of accuracy across all categories in addition to retraining these deep networks to classify all these new labels along with previous ones. However, we note that the majority of new labels that are being added now are simply subsets and combinations of existing labels, just an extra step of specificity. In this study, we will be looking at creating a model that can be trained on traditional datasets, either single-class or multi-class, but then can be quickly adapted and trained on new multi-class image datasets, in which the class components are part of the original training set, without losing accuracy on the original dataset and not having to train on it either.
