Tailoring Mixup to Data using Kernel Warping functions


Data augmentation is an essential building block for learning efficient deep learning models. Among all augmentation techniques proposed so far, linear interpolation of training data points, also called mixup, has found to be effective for a large panel of applications. While the majority of works have focused on selecting the right points to mix, or applying complex non-linear interpolation, we are interested in mixing similar points more frequently and strongly than less similar ones. To this end, we propose to dynamically change the underlying distribution of interpolation coefficients through warping functions, depending on the similarity between data points to combine. We define an efficient and flexible framework to do so without losing in diversity. We provide extensive experiments for classification and regression tasks, showing that our proposed method improves both performance and calibration of models.
