Initiatives & Trends

Researchers from The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Tencent, and Johns Hopkins University have developed a tool that automatically adds, removes, or modifies facial features of a person in an image. 

Patent no. 9,959,455 presents a system for facial recognition comprising at least one processor; at least one input operatively connected to the at least one processor; a database configured to store three-dimensional facial image data comprising facial feature coordinates in a predetermined common plane;

Can you segment moving objects from image frames captured by car cameras? The 2018 CVPR workshop on autonomous driving (WAD) is hosting a challenge to enable autonomously driven vehicles to label instances of moving objects such as vehicles and pedestrians.

In patent no 9,852,740 a high quality speech is reproduced with a small data amount in speech coding and decoding for performing compression coding and decoding of a speech signal to a digital signal.

Researchers from UC Berkeley have developed a deep learning model that can automatically transfer your font style. The model is named multi-content generative adversarial network (MC-GAN). 

For our March 2018 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of image segmentation
In patent no 9,886,647 systems, devices, and methods are presented for segmenting an image of a video stream with a client device by accessing a set of images within a video stream, identifying an object of interest within one or more images of the set of images, and detecting a region of interest within the one or more images. 

Researchers from Google, Verily Life Sciences, and Stanford School of Medicine have developed an algorithm to predict cardiovascular risk factors from retinal fundus photographs. Their model was trained from 48,101 patients from the UK Biobank and 236,234 patients from EyePACS using deep learning, and validated on 12,026 patients from the UK Biobank and 999 patients from EyePACS.

For our February 2018 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of image and video compression.
In patent no. 9,866,835 devices and methods for obtaining borehole images at a surface installation while a borehole-imaging downhole tool is logging a borehole are provided. One such method may involve, while the downhole tool is disposed in the borehole, obtaining a first borehole image at a first depth of investigation using the borehole-imaging downhole tool. 

For our January 2018 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of applications of medical MR or CT data segmentation.

The invention no. 9,659,370 relates to a method for segmenting MR Dixon image data. A processor and a computer program product are also disclosed for use in connection with the method. The invention finds application in the MR imaging field in general and more specifically may be used in the generation of an attenuation map to correct for attenuation by cortical bone during the reconstruction of PET images.

Researchers from Facebook AI Research have won the Best Paper Award (Marr Prize) at the 16th International Conference on Computer vision (ICCV) 2017, held in Venice, Italy. The work, named "Mask R-CNN", addresses the problem of instance segmentation, which combines tasks of object detection and semantic segmentation. Below is the presentation given by the first author Kaiming He at the conference.
