We present results with large-scale neuroscience-inspired models for feature detection using multi-spectral visible/ infrared satellite imagery. We describe a model using an artificial neural network architecture and learning rules to build sparse scene representations over an adaptive dictionary, fusing spectral and spatial textural characteristics of the objects of interest. Our results with fast codes implemented on clusters of graphical processor units (GPUs) suggest that visual cortex models are a promising approach to practical pattern recognition problems in remote sensing, even for datasets using spectral bands not found in natural visual systems.
