While its image counterpart, the image-to-image synthesis problem, is a popular topic, the video-to-video synthesis problem is less explored in the literature. NVIDIA team provides the original implementation of this research paper on. Experiments on multiple benchmarks show the advantage of our method compared to strong baselines. The solution is to use a spherical CNN which is robust to spherical rotations in the input data. • Early vision We also saw a number of breakthroughs with media generation which enable photorealistic style transfer, high-resolution image generation, and video-to-video synthesis.

A summary of real-life applications of human motion analysis and pose estimation (images from left to right and top to bottom): Human-Computer Interaction, Video IET Computer Vision seeks original research papers in a wide range of areas of computer vision. Even more, thanks to the closed-form solution, FastPhotoStyle can produce the stylized image 49 times faster than traditional methods. 8.7 CiteScore. International Collaboration accounts for the articles that have been produced by researchers from several countries. Mariya is the co-author of Applied AI: A Handbook For Business Leaders and former CTO at Metamaven. GN’s computation is independent of batch sizes, and its accuracy is stable in a wide range of batch sizes. Business applications that rely on BN-based models for object detection, segmentation, video classification and other computer vision tasks that require high-resolution input may benefit from moving to GN-based models as they are more accurate in these settings. Ever since convolutional neural networks began outperforming humans in specific image recognition tasks, research in the field of computer vision has proceeded at breakneck pace. Foreground-background prior in the generator design further improves the synthesis performance of the proposed model. The only way I’ll ever dance well.

The spherical correlation satisfies a generalized Fourier theorem, which allows us to compute it efficiently using a generalized (non-commutative) Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) algorithm. • Shape Global pose normalization is applied to account for differences between the source and target subjects in body shapes and locations within the frame. Check out our premium research summaries that focus on cutting-edge AI & ML research in high-value business areas, such as conversational AI and marketing & advertising. Traditional convolutional GANs demonstrated some very promising results with respect to image synthesis. When trained on ImageNet at 128×128 resolution, our models (BigGANs) achieve an Inception Score (IS) of 166.3 and Frechet Inception Distance (FID) of 9.6, improving over the previous best IS of 52.52 and FID of 18.65. The experiments demonstrate that the suggested vid2vid approach can synthesize high-resolution, photorealistic, temporally coherent videos on a diverse set of input formats including segmentation masks, sketches, and poses. He got his Master’s degree from China Academy of Science in 2016. The framework is based on conditional GANs. (2012)). • Architecture and languages Computer Vision and Image Understanding xxx (xxxx) xxx–xxx 2. To circumvent the need for pairs of training images of the same person under different expressions, a bidirectional generator is used to both transform an image into a desired expression and transform the synthesized image back into the original pose. If you’d like to skip around, here are the papers we featured: Are you interested in specific AI applications? Source code and additional results are available at https://github.com/NVIDIA/FastPhotoStyle. Jonathan Marshall of Univ. The central focus of this journal is the computer analysis of pictorial information. Finally, we apply our approach to future video prediction, outperforming several state-of-the-art competing systems. On the contrary, Group Normalization is independent of batch sizes as it divides the channels into groups and computes the mean and variance for normalization within each group. The experiments show that GN can outperform BN counterparts for object detection and segmentation in COCO dataset and video classification in Kinetics dataset. In action localization two approaches are dominant. Research Areas Include: Articles & Issues. Suggesting a novel approach to motion transfer that outperforms a strong baseline (pix2pixHD), according to both qualitative and quantitative assessments. / Computer Vision and Image Understanding 158 (2017) 1–16 3 uate SR performance in the literature. Thus, computations are much more efficient compared to the traditional methods. Supports open access. Specifically, GN divides channels, or feature maps, into groups and normalizes the features within each group. “Do as I do” motion transfer is approached as a per-frame image-to-image translation with the pose stick figures as an intermediate representation between source and target: A pre-trained state-of-the-art pose detector creates pose stick figures from the source video. Compared with historical Journal Impact data, the Metric 2019 of Computer Vision and Image Understanding grew by 4.52 %.

Review Speed. Furthermore, recent work has shown that generator conditioning affects GAN performance. In 2018, we saw novel architecture designs that improve upon performance benchmarks and also expand the range of media that machine learning models can analyze. In particular, showing that: spectral normalization applied to the generator stabilizes GAN training; utilizing imbalanced learning rates speeds up training of regularized discriminators. Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers. British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC) 57: 87: 12. The basic architecture of CNNs (or ConvNets) was developed in the 1980s. Applying orthogonal regularization to the generator makes the model responsive to a specific technique (“truncation trick”), which provides control over the trade-off between sample fidelity and variety. IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP) 52: 71: 14. Computer vision, at its core, is about understanding images. Yann LeCun improved upon the original design in 1989 by using backpropagation to train models to recognize handwritten digits. However, WCT was developed for artistic image stylizations, and thus, often generates structural artifacts for photorealistic image stylization. Graphical abstracts should be submitted as a separate file in the online submission system. Open-sourcing a PyTorch implementation of the technique. 5-28. While the stylization step transfers the style of the reference photo to the content photo, the smoothing step ensures spatially consistent stylizations. 8 min read. You’ve probably heard by now that Google’s artificial intelligence program called AlphaGo beat the world Go champion to win $1 million in prize money heralding a new era for AI advancements. Here, we address this question by leveraging recent techniques that transfer adversarial examples from computer vision models with known parameters and architecture to other models with unknown parameters and architecture, and by matching the initial processing of the human visual system.

Computer Vision and Image Understanding. About. They leverage key ideas from machine learning, neuroscience, and psychophysics to create adversarial examples that do in fact impact human perception in a time-limited setting. In this paper, we propose the Self-Attention Generative Adversarial Network (SAGAN) which allows attention-driven, long-range dependency modeling for image generation tasks. !”, Soumith Chintala, AI Research Engineer at Facebook. In Section 6.5, we explained that the pooling layer can reduce the sensitivity of the convolutional layer to the target location.In addition, we can make objects appear at different positions in the image in different proportions by randomly cropping the image. In SAGAN, details can be generated using cues from all feature locations. Is there anything special about the environment which makes vision possible?
