Abstract: Multi-class leaf disease prediction is one of the challenging tasks in large image databases due to uncertainty and high dimensional feature space. Most of the traditional deep learning frameworks are used to classify a single class disease prediction with limited feature space. However, these frameworks have high false positive rate and error rate due to various background, noisy appearance and semantic high- and low-level features for classification problem. Also, feature extraction and classification are the major problems in traditional convolution neural network (CNN) on multi-class leaf datasets. In this work, a novel image feature extraction-based deep learning classifier is designed and implemented on large multi-class leaf datasets. In this framework, a hybrid statistical leaf shape extraction method is used to find the essential features in the conditional probability-based principal component analysis (BPCA) approach. A novel deep learning classifier is proposed to improve the leaf disease prediction rate with high true positivity and accuracy on the multi-class leaf disease datasets. Experimental results show that the present framework has high computational performance than the traditional deep learning frameworks for multi-class classification.

Keywords: leaf disease classification; extreme learning; Bayesian estimators; principal component analysis.
