Anomaly detection could be applied in a wide range of fields from industrial scene to medical imaging analysis. Although invertible flow models are developed to accomplish unsupervised anomaly detection, they are usually hard to train and have limited capabilities of accurately modeling the distribution of normal samples. To address this problem, we propose a novel enhanced flow model conditioned on graph representation memory (FlowGRM) for visual surface defect detection. In our FlowGRM, a graph neural network is trained to query graph embedding features from memory bank and incorporate them into a learnable flow model as conditional information. Such memorized conditional information, together with the invertible flow model, is jointly optimized to give rise to a probability density score. Experimental results obtained on the industrial visual anomaly detection datasets including MVTec and MTD show that the proposed model has state-of-the-art performance, which could even reach up to 99.6% and 99.2% AUROC scores on the above two benchmarks, respectively. Meanwhile, it requires fewer parameters and saves over 80% training time compared to existing flow models.
