Adaptive Feature Representation for Visual Tracking

Robust feature representation plays significant role in visual tracking. However, it remains a challenging issue, since many factors may affect the experimental performance. The existing method which combine different features by setting them equally with the fixed weight could hardly solve the issues, due to the different statistical properties of different features across various of scenarios and attributes. In this paper, by exploiting the internal relationship among these features, we develop a robust method to construct a more stable feature representation. More specifically, we utilize a co-training paradigm to formulate the intrinsic complementary information of multi-feature template into the efficient correlation filter framework. We test our approach on challenging se- quences with illumination variation, scale variation, deformation etc. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method outperforms state-of-the-art methods favorably.

Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) have shown to outperform traditional methods in various visual recognition tasks including Facial Expression Recognition (FER). In spite of efforts made to improve the accuracy of FER systems using DNN, existing methods still are not generalizable enough in practical applications. This paper proposes a 3D Convolutional Neural Network method for FER in videos. Read More

In the context of scene understanding, a variety of methods exists to estimate different information channels from mono or stereo images, including disparity, depth, and normals. Although several advances have been reported in the recent years for these tasks, the estimated information is often imprecise particularly near depth discontinuities or creases. Studies have however shown that precisely such depth edges carry critical cues for the perception of shape, and play important roles in tasks like depth-based segmentation or foreground selection.

Training generative adversarial networks is unstable in high-dimensions when the true data distribution lies on a lower-dimensional manifold. The discriminator is then easily able to separate nearly all generated samples leaving the generator without meaningful gradients. We propose training a single generator simultaneously against an array of discriminators, each of which looks at a different random low-dimensional projection of the data. Read More

Adversarial training has been shown to regularize deep neural networks in addition to increasing their robustness to adversarial examples. However, its impact on very deep state of the art networks has not been fully investigated. In this paper, we present an efficient approach to perform adversarial training by perturbing intermediate layer activations and study the use of such perturbations as a regularizer during training.

Action segmentation as a milestone towards building automatic systems to understand untrimmed videos has received considerable attention in the recent years. It is typically being modeled as a sequence labeling problem but contains intrinsic and sufficient differences than text parsing or speech processing. In this paper, we introduce a novel hybrid temporal convolutional and recurrent network (TricorNet), which has an encoder-decoder architecture: the encoder consists of a hierarchy of temporal convolutional kernels that capture the local motion changes of different actions; the decoder is a hierarchy of recurrent neural networks that are able to learn and memorize long-term action dependencies after the encoding stage.

In multi-view clustering, different views may have different confidence levels when learning a consensus representation. Existing methods usually address this by assigning distinctive weights to different views. However, due to noisy nature of real-world applications, the confidence levels of samples in the same view may also vary. Read More

We interpret convolutional networks as adaptive filters and combine them with so-called MuxOut layers to efficiently upscale low resolution images. We formalize this interpretation by deriving a linear and space-variant structure of a convolutional network when its activations are fixed. We introduce general purpose algorithms to analyze a network and show its overall filter effect for each given location. Read More

We develop an approach for unsupervised learning of associations between co-occurring perceptual events using a large graph. We applied this approach to successfully solve the image captcha of China's railroad system. The approach is based on the principle of suspicious coincidence. Read More

The paucity of videos in current action classification datasets (UCF-101 and HMDB-51) has made it difficult to identify good video architectures, as most methods obtain similar performance on existing small-scale benchmarks. This paper re-evaluates state-of-the-art architectures in light of the new Kinetics Human Action Video dataset. Kinetics has two orders of magnitude more data, with 400 human action classes and over 400 clips per class, and is collected from realistic, challenging YouTube videos. Read More
