报告题目(Title): Client-Specific Anomaly Detection
报告人姓名(Speaker): Josef Kittler
In many applications, the core decision making task is anomaly detection. This can be formulated in a number of ways depending on the amount and type of data available for the design of the anomaly detection system. In some applications only normal data is available for training. In such scenarios, the problem of anomaly detection converts to one of one class classification. We review various approaches to one-class anomaly detection and discuss their application to face spoofing attack detection. We will then focus on client specific designs and demonstrate their merit. Through extensive experiments using different one-class systems, it will be shown that the use of client-specific information in a one-class anomaly detection formulation (both in model construction as well as decision boundary selection) improves the performance significantly. We also show that while two-class solutions perform better than anomaly-based approaches in known attack scenarios, the converse is true in the unseen attack case.

In this talk, I will overview the trend of deep metric learning techniques and discuss how they are employed to boost the performance of various visual content understanding tasks. Specifically, I will introduce some of our proposed deep metric learning methods including discriminative deep metric learning, deep localized metric learning, deep coupled metric learning, multi-manifold deep metric learning, deep transfer metric learning, deep adversarial metric learning, and multi-view deep metric learning, which are developed for different application-specific visual content understanding tasks such as face recognition, person re-identification, object recognition, action recognition, visual tracking, image set classification, and visual search. Lastly, I will discuss some open problems in deep metric learning to show how to further develop more advanced deep metric learning methods in the future.

报告题目(Title): Weak Person Re-identification
报告人姓名(Speaker): Wei-Shi Zheng
Person re-identification (re-id) is an important research topic for visual surveillance. In practice, however, person re-id is still suffering from many unresolved serious influences, such as illumination, clothing change, etc. In addition, at present most of the performance of re-id algorithms heavily depends on the annotation of mass data, and how to deal with a large number of weak annotation or the identification of person re-id under no annotation data modeling is still an urgent need to solve. In this talk we will introduce the weak person re-identification research, including weakly supervised solutions for the solving re-id with weak labels and some new models to solve the re-id with weak visual cues.

报告题目(Title): Deep Hashing for Large-scale Image and Video Retrieval
报告人姓名(Speaker): Ruiping Wang
Recent years have witnessed the explosive growth of image and video data on the Internet, posing great challenges to retrieving images/videos relevant to given query. At the meantime, the retrieval tasks have also become more diverse, such as 1) retrieving images from the same category, 2) retrieving images with specified attributes, and 3) the combination of the above tasks. To deal with such tasks, hashing is often adopted for its high efficiency in both time and storage. In this talk, I will introduce recent progresses in our group towards this topic. First, to tackle the traditional category retrieval, we propose a novel Deep Supervised Hashing (DSH) method that takes pairs of images as training inputs and learns the desired compact binary codes as the output of each image in an end-to-end manner. Then, to address the multiple retrieval tasks, we propose a unified framework named Dual Purpose Hashing (DPH) to jointly preserve the category and attribute similarities in a multi-task learning fashion. Furthermore, we extend the idea of DSH to Deep Heterogeneous Hashing (DHH) that learns unified binary codes for both images and videos in a single framework to tackle the task of cross image-video retrieval.

报告题目(Title): Large-Scale Pretrained Audio Neural Networks for Audio Pattern Recognition
报告人姓名(Speaker): Qiuqiang Kong
Audio pattern recognition is an essential task for sound understanding, and is an important research topic in the machine learning area including several tasks such as audio tagging, acoustic scene classification and sound event detection. Recently neural networks have been applied to solve audio pattern recognition problems. However, previous systems focus on small datasets, which limits the performance of audio pattern recognition systems. Recently in computer vision and natural language processing, systems pretrained on large datasets have generalized well to several tasks. However, there is limited research on pretraining neural networks on large datasets for audio pattern recognition. We propose large-scale pretrained audio neural networks (PANNs) trained on AudioSet. We propose to use Wavegram, a feature learned from waveform, and the mel spectrogram as input. We investigate the performance and complexity of a variety of convolutional neural networks. Our proposed AudioSet tagging system achieves a state-of-the-art mean average precision (mAP) of 0.439, outperforming the best previous system of 0.392. We transferred a PANN to six audio pattern recognition tasks and achieve state-of-the-art performance in many tasks. Source code and pretrained models have been released.
