Leveraging Scene Text Information for Image Interpretation

Abstract: Until recently, most computer vision models remained illiterate, largely ignoring the semantically rich and explicit information contained as scene text. Recent progress in scene text detection and recognition has recently allowed exploring its role in a diverse set of open computer vision problems, e.g. image classification, image-text retrieval, image captioning, and visual question answering … Read more

A Bitter-Sweet Symphony on Vision and Language: Bias and World Knowledge

Abstract: Vision and Language are broadly regarded as cornerstones of intelligence. Even though language and vision have different aims – language having the purpose of communication, transmission of information and vision having the purpose of constructing mental representations around us to navigate and interact with objects – they cooperate and depend on one another in … Read more

Calibrated Fine-Grained Recognition and Retrieval

Abstract: In the last decade, many areas of computer vision have progressed to a level supporting reliable, and sometimes impressive, applications. I wil talk about two such domains, fine-grained recognition and visual retrieval. In the fine-grained recognition, I’ll discuss the issue of prior probability shift, classifier calibration and the choice of loss functions driven by … Read more

Reading Music Systems: From Deep Optical Music Recognition to Contextual Methods

Abstract: The transcription of sheet music into some machine-readable format can be carried out manually. However, the complexity of music notation inevitably leads to burdensome software for music score editing, which makes the whole process very time-consuming and prone to errors. Consequently, automatic transcription systems for musical documents represent interesting tools. Document analysis is the … Read more
