Two-dimensional discrete feature based spatial attention CapsNet For sEMG signal recognition
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › peer-review
Deep learning frameworks(such as deep convolutional networks) require data to have a regular shape. However, discrete features extracted from heterogeneous data cannot be collected in a regular shape to convolute. In this article, a Two-Dimensional Discrete Feature Based Spatial Attention CapsNet(TDACAPS) is proposed to convert one-dimensional discrete features into two-dimensional structured data through Cartesian Product for surface electromyogram(sEMG) signal recognition. sEMG signal varies from person to person is the main signal source of prosthetic control. Our model transforms multi-angle discrete features into structured data to find the inherent law of sEMG signal. Due to uneven information distribution of structured data, this model combines capsule network with attention mechanism to place emphasis on abundant information regions and reduce ancillary information loss. Extensive experiments show our model yields an improvement for sEMG signal recognition of almost 3% than capsule network and other neural networks under different conditions. Our attention mechanism that employs overlapping pooling to search feature map weight is preferable to the squeeze-and-excitation module, convolutional block attention module and others. Moreover, we validate that our model has great expansibility on Wine Quality Dataset and Breast Cancer Wisconsin.
