This web-based validation system has been designed to perform visual validation of automated multi-class segmentation of concrete samples from scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images. The goal is to segment automatically SEM images into no-damage and damage sub-classes, where the damage sub-classes consist of paste damage, aggregate damage, and air voids. While the no-damage sub-classes are not included in the goal, they provide context for assigning damage sub-classes.
The motivation behind this web validation system is to prepare a large number of pixel-level multi-class annotated microscopy images for training artifical intelligence (AI) based segmentation models (U-Net and SegNet models). While the purpose of the AI models is to predict accurately four damage labels, such as, paste damage, aggregate damage, air voids, and no-damage, our goal is to assert trust in such predictions (a) by using contextual labels and (b) by enabling visual validations of predicted damage labels.
