Apoptosis classification using attention based spatio temporal graph convolution neural network
Accurate classification of apoptosis plays an important role in cell biology research. There are many state-of-the-art approaches which use deep CNNs to perform the apoptosis classification but these approaches do not account for the cell interaction. Our paper proposes the Attention Graph spatio-temporal graph convolutional network to classify the cell death based on the target cells in the video. This method considers the interaction of multiple target cells at each time stamp. We model the whole video sequence as a set of graphs and classify the target cell in the video as dead or alive. Our method encounters both spatial and temporal relationships.
