The Machine Learning for Automatic Target Recognition (ML4ATR) session at SPIE Defense + Security 2018 (ATR conference) highlights the accomplishments to date and challenges ahead in designing and deploying deep learning and big data analytics algorithms, systems, and hardware for ATR. It provides a forum for researchers, practitioners, solution architects and program managers across all the widely varying disciplines of ATR involved in connecting, engaging, designing solutions, setting up requirements, testing and evaluating to shape the future of this exciting field. ML4ATR topics of interest include training deep learning based ATR with limited measured/real data, multi-modal satellite/hyperspectral/Sonar/FMV Imagery analytics, graph analytic multi-sensory fusion, change detection, pattern-of-life analysis, adversarial learning, trust and ethics. This year ML4ATR hosts 8 panelists from government labs, research institutions and defense R&D companies. Each panelist gives a short keynote talk about their projects on machine learning for ATR. The chairs of this session encourage attendees from the SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing 2018 community to engage in the discussions with the panel members.
