报告题目:Discriminative Visual Representations for Image Search and Classification slides

报告内容: The emergence of massive image data has urged effective and efficient techniques towards large-scale image search and classification. Generally, the introduction of local invariant features and the Bag-of-Words model has witnessed the development of both research fields. However, this model suffers from both the information loss during vector quantization and the deficiency in the descriptive power of various aspects of images. In the light of this problem, this talk will present several recent works in our group that focus on the discriminative representations in image search and classification. To be specific, I will first describe feature representations such as binary descriptors, region/part descriptors including CNN, as well as informative quantization. Then, in accordance to the descriptors, I will introduce a series of recently proposed indexing schemes aiming at reducing both memory and time cost, such as cross-index, cascade category-aware index, tensor-index, super-image index, etc. Third, I will present some exciting advances in discriminative feature fusion strategies, such as coupled multi-index, bayes merging, co-index, etc. Moreover, our recent works on post-processing such as ImageWeb, query-adaptive fusion will also be discussed. Last but not least, I will summarize our achievements in advancing the state-of-the-arts on benchmark datasets in image search and classification.

Tutorial: Deep Learning for Computer Vision

Part I: Introduction to Deep Learning slides

内容:Deep learning has become a major breakthrough in artificial intelligence and achieved amazing success on solving grand challenges in many fields including computer vision. Its success benefits from big training data and super parallel computational power emerging in recent years, as well as advanced model design and training strategies. In this part of tutorial, we will try to introduce deep learning and explain the magic behind it with layman terms. Through concrete examples of computer vision applications, we will focus on four key points about deep learning. (1) Different than traditional pattern recognition systems, which heavily rely on manually designed features, deep learning automatically learns hierarchical feature representations from data and disentangles hidden factors of input data through multi-level nonlinear mappings. (2) Different than existing pattern recognition systems which sequentially design or training their key components, deep learning is able to jointly optimize all the components and crate synergy through close interactions among them. (3) While most machine learning tools can be approximated with neural networks with shallow structures, for some tasks, the expressive power of deep models increases exponentially as their architectures go deep. (4) Benefitting the large learning capacity of deep models, we also recast some classical computer vision challenges as high-dimensional data transform problems and solve them from new perspectives.

报告题目:Deblurring Night Images: Utilizing Separable Kernel and Saturated Regions

报告内容:The blur effects caused by camera shake and object motion in scenes occur frequently in photography, producing disappointing blurry images with inevitable information loss, which becomes one of the most common reasons for discarding photographs. In this talk, I would like to present our recent work in deblurring night images, which is challenging due to the low contrast combined with heavy noise and saturated regions in night images. Unlike existing methods that discard saturated regions, we propose a novel scheme to deduce blur kernels from saturated regions via novel separable kernel representation and advanced algorithms. The beauty of our work is that it does not rely on whether the deblurring scheme can estimate a right kernel at the initial stage. While under the iterative initialization and blind deconvolution, our work provides the deblurring scheme a chance to break away from local minimum with the help of new initial blur kernel, even without changing the deblurring scheme.

报告题目:A Simple and General Algorithm for Various Norms Minimization or Maximization slides

报告内容: In many machine learning methods, we need to minimize or maximize certain norm functions, and how to efficiently optimize these functions is a fundamental and important issue. In this talk, I will first introduce a very simple algorithm to minimize a general function, and then demonstrate how it can be applied to minimize or to maximize various norm functions. The algorithm will find a global optimal solution if the problem is convex, and a local optimal solution if the problem is non-convex. The algorithm is very simple, general, and useful. For example, it can be used to minimize most robust loss functions for robust learning, and can also be used to maximize several norms for robust PCA/LDA, sparse PCA, etc.

报告题目:The Margin Theory of Machine Learning slides

报告内容: 在Vapnik等人创立的经典margin理论中,SVM(或任何线性分类器)的性能只与margin有关,而与数据所在的空间维数无关。这一理论使得我们可以利用核方法将输入空间映射到(无穷维)特征空间进行线性分类。在本报告中,我将证明这一机器学习经典结论并不完全正确,SVM性能并非仅由margin决定而与特征空间维数无关。具体的,我将证明一个基于与特征空间维数相关的margin上界。该上界一致紧于经典的维数无关margin上界;当特征空间维数是无穷大时,新上界等价于传统维数无关margin上界。这一margin理论表明,核方法为了提高margin而增加特征空间维数时,一定程度上付出了性能的代价。实验结果显示该理论对于SVM核函数的选择具有指导意义。

报告题目:Learning on Riemannian Manifold for Video-based Face Recognition slides

报告内容: Recently the ubiquitous use of video capturing devices is shifting the focus of face recognition research from image-based scenarios to video-based ones. In this talk, I will introduce recent progresses in our group towards this topic. By simply treating video as image set, our works mainly deal with the problem of robust image set modeling and efficient metric learning for classification. Specifically, for robust set modeling, we propose to use the natural second-order statistic - covariance matrix (a.k.a SPD matrix) and further the Gaussian distribution model as set features to characterize the data structure of the image set. Then under the framework of Riemannian geometry and information geometry, the covariance matrices or Gaussian models are embedded into some certain Riemannian manifolds, where Riemannian kernels can be derived based on valid Riemannian metrics and thus facilitate learning algorithms originally developed in Euclidean space. For set classification, the problem is naturally formulated as discriminative metric learning on such Riemannian manifolds. Here, the notion “metric learning” is associated with different application scenarios. We have considered both cases of video vs. video matching and still image vs. video (e.g. image as gallery and video as probe). For large scale face video retrieval applications, we further develop corresponding hashing methods to learn discriminative compact binary codes for highly efficient video search. Representative works appear at IEEE CVPR2008/2009/2012/2014/2015.

报告题目:大规模视频数据复杂事件检测 slides

报告内容: Compared to visual concepts such as actions, scenes and objects, complex event is a higher level abstraction of longer video sequences. For example, a “marriage proposal” event is described by multiple objects (e.g., ring, faces), scenes (e.g., in a restaurant, outdoor) and actions (e.g., kneeling down). I will present our work on detecting more complicated and generic events that gain more users’ interest. The positive exemplars which exactly convey the precise semantic of an event are hard to obtain. It would be beneficial to utilize the related exemplars for complex event detection. However, the semantic correlations between related exemplars and the target event vary substantially as relatedness assessment is subjective. Two related exemplars can be about completely different events, e.g., in the TRECVID MED dataset, both bicycle riding and equestrianism are labelled as related to “attempting a bike trick” event. To tackle the subjectiveness of human assessment, our algorithm automatically evaluates how positive the related exemplars are for the detection of an event and uses them on an exemplar-specific basis. Experiments demonstrate that our algorithm is able to utilize related exemplars adaptively, and the algorithm gains good performance for complex event detection. As the information from a few positive examples is limited, we propose using knowledge adaptation to facilitate event detection. Different from the state of the art, our algorithm is able to adapt knowledge from another source for MED even if the features of the source and the target are partially different, but overlapping. Avoiding the requirement that the two domains are consistent in feature types is desirable as data collection platforms change or augment their capabilities and we should be able to respond to this with little or no effort. We also makes two contributions to the inference of CNN video representation. First, while average pooling and max pooling have long been the standard approaches to aggregating frame level static features, we show that performance can be significantly improved by taking advantage of an appropriate encoding method. Second, we propose using a set of latent concept descriptors as the frame descriptor, which enriches visual information while keeping it computationally affordable.

报告题目:Designing Fast Appearance Model for Visual Tracking slides

报告内容: Since the target appearance will change significantly due to complex factors in the scene like illumination change, pose variation, occlusion, etc., an effective appearance model plays a key role in visual tracking. On the other hand, a fast appearance model is a prerequisite for real-time tracking, which can be readily applied to some real-time applications, such as visual surveillance, human-computer interface, etc. In this talk, I will briefly introduce some of our recently developed methods that exploit the efficient filtering approach to design fast appearance models, including those without learning based on compressive sensing theory and convolutional networks, and that with very simple spatio-temporal context learning method.
