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

Affiliation: Computer Scientist at Pixmap. Place: Large Lecture Room   Classifying 3D measurement data has become a core problem in photogrammetry and 3D computer vision, since the rise of modern multiview geometry techniques, combined with affordable range sensors. We introduce a

3D Mask Face Anti-Spoofing with Remote Photoplethy Smography

Affiliation: Professor and Head of the Department of Computer Science. Hong Kong Baptist University. Place: Large Lecture Room   Face recognition has been successfully deployed in many practical applications ranging from mobile phone logon to banking and law enforcement domains in the last

The World-as-Support: embodied exploration, understanding and meaning-making of the augmented world

Affiliation: Tenure Associate Professor in the ICT Department (DTIC) of Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain) Place: Large Lecture Room The rich opportunities offered by the blending of the digital and the material worlds have become a mainstream research field in HCI.

Mapping the World with Street View

  Affiliation: Senior Staff Software Engineer Google Inc. USA Place: Large Lecture Room   Google extracts information from Street View images to build maps. It started with street address numbers, and is now growing to more and more types of

Computational mechanisms of rapid visual recognition

  Place: Large Lecture Room   Perception involves a complex interaction between feedforward sensory-driven information and feedback attentional, memory, and executive processes that modulate such feedforward processing. A mechanistic understanding of feedforward processing, and its limitations, is a necessary first

Low-Level Vision Color Constancy and Prior Color Naming for Application-independent Automated Linear-Time Detection and Quality Assessment of Superpixels in Multi-Source Color Images

Place: Large Lecture Room   Low-level Vision Statistical Color Constancy and Prior Color Naming for Application-Independent Automated Near Real-Time Detection and Quality Assessment of Superpixels / Texels in Any Color Image: (i) Uncalibrated / Calibrated, (ii) RGB True- or False-Color

From Medical Image Analysis to Computer-based Personalized Medicine.

Place: Large lecture room. Tomorrow’s healthcare lies in early diagnosis and individually tailored treatments, i.e. delivering the right treatment to the right patient at the right time. This patient-centred approach to medicine, the so-called personalized medicine, has been embraced as
