Talk Title: Beyond Deep Recognition: Discovering Visual Patterns in Big Visual Data
Abstract: Thanks to the success of deep learning, many computer vision tasks nowadays are formulated as regression problems. However, often times one has to rely on large amounts of annotated training data to make the high-dimensional regression successful. In this talk, we will discuss a complementary yet overlooked problem beyond deep visual recognition and regression. We will discuss why and how to discover visual patterns in images and videos that are not annotated, e.g., unsupervised and weakly-supervised visual learning and pattern discovery, and explore how to utilize them to better model, search, and interpret big visual data. Applications in visual search, object detection, action recognition, and video analytics will also be discussed.
