    Restricted Isometry Property of Gaussian Random Projection for Low-Dimensional Subspaces

    Professor Yuantao Gu
    Tsinghua University
    Beijing, China

    Abstract: Dimensionality reduction is in demand to reduce the complexity of solving large-scale problems with data lying in latent low-dimensional structures in machine learning and computer version. Motivated by such need, in this talk I will introduce the Restricted Isometry Property (RIP) of Gaussian random projections for low-dimensional subspaces in R^N, and prove that the projection Frobenius norm distance between any two subspaces spanned by the projected data in R^n for n

    Reflection Removal for Images and 3D Point Clouds

    We often capture images of a target scene through glass. For example, we take photographs of the products displayed in the show window, or take photographs of buildings with glass curtain walls. The captured glass image includes the target scene behind the glass as well as undesired reflected scene in front of the glass, since light passes through and is reflected on a pane of glass simultaneously. Such reflection artifacts may degrade the performance of image processing and computer vision techniques when applied to glass images. In this seminar, we first talk about an automatic reflection removal algorithm for multiple glass images taken at slightly different camera locations. Also, with the advent of high-performance LiDAR scanners, large-scale 3D point clouds (LS3DPCs) for real-world scenes are being used in challenging applications. However, LS3DPCs captured by terrestrial LiDAR scanners also suffer from the reflection artifacts since many outdoor real-world structures include glasses. As a next topic, we
    define a problem of reflection in LS3DPCs and introduce our current research work on reflection removal for LS3DPCs.
