Title: Semantic understanding of images and videos
Abstract: Images/videos is one of the biggest data in this big data era. How to understand them pose a huge challenge. In this talk, I will describing our efforts in addressing this challenge, walking you through our works in fine-grained image recognition, near-duplicate image recognition (or known as image retrieval), object detection, and 3D reconstruction. All these works have one single goal: semantic understanding of images/videos.
