Deep Learning for Document, Scene and Satellite Images Processing and Recognition

CVC Seminar


Deep learning applications have been thriving over the last decade in many different domains, including image processing and recognition. The driver for the vibrant development of deep learning have been the availability of abundant data. This talk reviews the main results of our research activities carried out over the last few years. During this period, we have been particularly active in developing machine learning tools to process, recognize, retrieve, and classify different types of images including document, scene and satellite images. In this context, different approaches are presented like few-shot learning, active learning, multi-task learning, fine-grained attention.
