Object detection and classification has made breakthroughs along with the advance of deep CNNs in recent years. While the discriminative object features are learned via a deep CNN, there are still several issues including (1) the large intra-class variation and deformation, (2) the availability of large-scale annotated data and (3) the uneven separability of different data categories which have become three major impediments of deep learning for image classification. We thus propose to mine the data hierarchy residing in the large-scale data itself for semi-supervised deep CNN learning. In particular, we propose a subcategory-aware CNN (S-CNN) to solve the object intra-class variation problem. and a semi-supervised hierarchical convolutional neural network (SS-HCNN) to address the large-scale data annotation and uneven data separability problem. The proposed methods have been evaluated on several state-of-the-art datasets and the results well validate the effectiveness of the proposed methods.
