6 CVC papers accepted at this year’s ECCV


6 CVc papers have been accepted at this year’s European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV) that will take place in Munich from the 8 to the 14th of September. Most of the papers aren’t accessible yet, and we will be publishing them as they become public.

For now, we only have two available paper and several temptative titles:

Folded Recurrent Neural Networks for Future Video Prediction

Deep Structure Inference Network for Facial Action Unit Recognition

Single Shot Scene Text Retrieval

Transferring GANs: generating images from limited data

Attend and Rectify: a Gated Attention Mechanism for Fine-Grained Recovery

On Offline Evaluation of Vision-based Driving Models
