    Title: Compositing Real and Virtual Objects with Realistic, Color-Accurate Illumination
    Room: GFS 104
    Time: June 7 (Friday) 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

    Abstract:
    In digital compositing, images from a variety of sources are combined to form a seamless, realistic result that appears as though it could have been photographed in the real world. This technique is extensively used in visual effects and film production, for example when an actor filmed in a studio is composited into a different real or virtual environment. It is also widely used in augmented or mixed reality, where rendered virtual imagery is combined with a live video feed. For a realistic and convincing composite, the content from the various source images must appear to have been captured at the same time under the same lighting conditions. Thus, whether such content is photographed or synthetically rendered, digital compositing benefits from accurate measurement of scene illumination, and, for rendered objects, also from accurate material reflectance measurement. In this dissertation, we therefore present new techniques for the measurement and estimation of illumination and reflectance, geared towards the goal of producing realistic and color-accurate digital composites.

    First, we present a multispectral illumination measurement and playback technique to extend studio lighting reproduction for live-action compositing to the multispectral domain, improving color rendition as compared with previous work. Next, a theoretical analysis affords the selection of an optimal, minimal set of light emitting diodes (LEDs) of distinct spectra for this technique. For post-production methods, we extend image-based relighting to the multispectral domain for the same goal of improved color rendition, forming the appearance of an object in a novel lighting environment by combining images of the object as lit by an omnidirectional, multispectral lighting basis. For the specific application of digitizing humans, which enables rendering a person under a novel viewpoint or lighting environment, we also present an efficient approach to multispectral high-resolution facial scanning using monochrome cameras, where both geometric resolution and color rendition are improved compared to previous work.

    The final technique we present is a machine learning based method to estimate high dynamic range (HDR), omnidirectional illumination given only a single, unconstrained mobile phone image with a limited field-of-view. As image formation using the aforementioned post-production techniques requires accurate lighting measurement, typically realized using panoramic HDR photography and a special color calibration target, real-time mobile mixed reality compositing with convincing illumination remains elusive because these off-line light measurement techniques are both impractical and not accessible for the average mobile phone user. Our learning based approach for omnidirectional HDR lighting estimation from a single image is the first to generalize to both indoor and outdoor scenes, while comparing favorably to previous methods developed to handle only a single class of lighting.

  • Jonathan Habif, Monday, June 10th at 2pm in EEB 248

    Mon, Jun 10, 2019 @ 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Jonathan Habif, Research Scientist at ISI Waltham

    Talk Title: The Laboratory for Quantum-Limited Information: Optical Sensing at the Quantum Limit

    Abstract: In this talk I will begin by introducing the Laboratory for Quantum-Limited Information (QLIlab), part of the USC Information Sciences Institute. QLIlab is focused on understanding the fundamental limits for extracting information from physical signals in photon-starved sensing and communications settings and demonstrating the capability to achieve these limits with novel designs for optical receivers. As an example, I will present our theoretical and experimental work on quantum-limited discrimination of photon-starved classical states. In this work the fundamental quantum limit for discriminating between thermal and coherent (laser) light is calculated, along with the error-probability for discrimination that can be achieved by using traditional optical receivers. The Generalized-Kennedy (GK) receiver is shown to have near optimal performance for this discrimination task. The GK receiver has been constructed in the laboratory and shown to out-perform theoretical limits from direct and coherent detection optical receivers. Finally, I will describe how this work will be extended to broader classes of sensing and communications challenges, including passive imaging and weak coherent signals buried in bright noise. A key goal for this talk is to engage with the audience to identify new optical and opto-electronic technologies that can help to realize optical receivers operating at the quantum limit of sensitivity, and ultimately miniaturize the systems so they can be transitioned up the technology readiness level scale.

    Biography: Dr. Jonathan L. Habif is an experimental physicist and research lead at the University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute (ISI). His research has focused on photon-starved, classical communication and imaging, quantum-secured optical communications in free-space and fiber, and integrated nano-photonics for both classical and non-classical applications. Prior to joining ISI, Dr. Habif was with BBN technologies where he served as principal investigator for a number of DARPA-sponsored research programs, partnering with university collaborators to demonstrate revolutionary optical technologies impacting traditional communications, sensing and computation systems.
    Dr. Habif earned a Ph.D. from the University of Rochester in the field of superconducting quantum computing and continued this course of research as a postdoctoral associate at MIT.

  • Stochastic Regularizer for High Dimensional Small-Sampled Data and Online learning for Time Series Forecasting

    Fri, Jun 14, 2019 @ 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Sergül Aydöre, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Stevens Institute of Technology

    Talk Title: Stochastic Regularizer for High Dimensional Small-Sampled Data and Online learning for Time Series Forecasting

    Abstract: In this talk, I will focus on developing efficient Machine Learning algorithms for two situations. One situation is high dimensional, small sampled and noisy data situations as in neuroscience, biology or geology where data collection is expensive. This phenomenon is known as curse of dimensionality that causes overfitting which is often an obstacle for using machine learning techniques. We formulated a structured stochastic regularization that relies on feature grouping. Using a fast clustering algorithm, we define a family of groups of features that capture feature covariations. Inside a stochastic gradient descent loop, we then randomly average these features. Experiments on two real-world datasets demonstrate that our approach produces models that generalize better than those trained with conventional regularizers, and also improves convergence speed, and has a linear computational cost. Another challenging situation that I will talk about is updating a machine learning model with streaming data without iterating through previously seen data. This is also known as "online learning" and one application is forecasting time series. The performance of online learning algorithms is typically evaluated by the regret. We introduce a new local regret for non-convex models in dynamic environments. We present an update rule incurring a cost, according to our proposed regret, which is sublinear in time T. Our update uses time-smoothed gradients. Using a real-world dataset we show that our time-smoothed approach yields several benefits when compared with state-of-the-art competitors: results are more stable against new data; training is more robust to hyperparameter selection; and our approach is more computationally efficient than the alternatives.

    Biography: Sergul Aydore has been an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Stevens Insitute of Technology in August 2018. Before joining Stevens, Sergul was a Machine Learning Scientist at Amazon's demand forecasting where she built neural network models to predict the demands of millions of products to enable better in-stock positions. She is also an associate member of Parietal team at Inria, Saclay. She received her PhD degree from the Signal and Image Processing Institute at the University of Southern California in 2014. Her PhD work was on developing robust connectivity measures for neuroimaging data. Prior to Amazon, Sergul was a postdoctoral researcher at Columbia University where she implemented machine learning models for EEG data. She then spent a year as a Data Scientist at JP Morgan. She received her B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Bogazici University, Istanbul where she developed signal processing techniques to investigate biomedical signals. She was a recipient of the Viterbi School of Engineering Doctoral fellowship and was recognized as a 2014 USC Ming Hsieh Institute Ph.D. Scholar.

    Mon, Jun 17, 2019 @ 05:15 PM - 06:30 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Frank Ong , Stanford University

    Talk Title: Extreme MRI: Reconstructing Hundred-Gigabyte Volumetric Dynamic MRI from Non-Gated Acquisitions

    Series: Medical Imaging Seminar Series

    Abstract: In this talk, I will present techniques to reconstruct 3D dynamic MRI of ~100 GBs from continuous non-gated acquisitions. The problem considered is vastly undetermined and demanding of computation and memory. I will introduce a multi scale low rank matrix model to compactly represent dynamic image sequence. This enables compressed storage, which in combination with a stochastic optimization approach, renders the reconstruction of 100s of GBs of images feasible. The proposed method is applied to dynamic contrast enhanced MRI and free breathing lung MRI, with reconstruction resolution of near millimeter spatially, and sub-second temporally. The attached animated gif shows a 3D rendered result from this talk.

    (Joint work with Xucheng Zhu, Joseph Cheng, Peder Larson, Shreyas Vasanawala, and Michael Lustig)

    Biography: Frank Ong is a post-doctoral researcher at Stanford University, working with Prof. Shreyas Vasanawala and Prof. John Pauly. His research focuses on computational imaging methods in medical imaging, particularly in MRI. He received his PhD degree from UC Berkeley in Fall 2018 with Prof. Michael Lustig.

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Malihe Alikhani, Rutgers University

    Talk Title: Multimodal Communication: A Discourse Approach

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: The integration of textual and visual information is fundamental to the way people communicate. My hypothesis is that despite the differences of the visual and linguistic communication, the two have similar intentional, inferential and contextual properties, which can be modeled with similar representations and algorithms. I present three successful case studies where natural language techniques provide a useful foundation for supporting user engagement with visual communication. Finally, I propose using these findings for designing interactive systems that can communicate with people using a broad range of appropriate modalities.
