Recent Applications of Deep Learning for Retinal Image Analysis

Affiliation: Postdoctoral Researcher at INESC TEC Porto Place: Large Lecture Room Abstract The human eye is an excellent source of biomarkers that are useful for the early detection of different diseases like diabetes or hypertension. Acquisition of images of the retinal fundus

Learning CNN filter resolution using multi-scale structured receptive fields

Affiliation: Assistant professor at the Technical University Delft Place: Large Lecture Room Abstract The design of filter layers in a CNNs is a matter of trail and error where the filter-size in a single layer is typically hard-coded. Here I question this

Active Decision Boundary Annotation with Deep Generative Models

Affiliation: Assistant professor at the Technical University Delft Place: Large Lecture Room Abstract This talk is on active learning where the goal is to reduce the data annotation burden by interacting with a (human) oracle during training. Standard active learning methods ask

Deep Multimodal and contextual visual recognition

Affiliation: PostDoc Researcher at the Computer Vision Center Place: Large Lecture Room Abstract Visual recognition is often addressed only using RGB images. However, humans perceive and understand the world through multiple senses and leverage other sources of information such as prior

Historical Map Alignment and Toponym Recognition with Geographic and Style Models

Affiliation: Associate Professor. Department of Computer Science. Grinnell College. IA, USA. Place: Large Lecture Room Recognizing the place names within textual labels on historical maps is complicated by many factors, such as curvilinear baselines and dense overlap with other textual or graphical

Semantic segmentation of 3D textured meshes for urban scene analysis
