Notes on cvpr 12
Well coming back from this year’s CVPR, haven’t got chance to write down something. I guess I’ll just take this weekend to do some short notes for some interesting papers.
There are several nice tutorials this year. More people than expected are interested in ‘deep learning’, thus they have to switch to another bigger room. I like the Graph-cut slides, which unfortunately I didn’t get chance to attend. Since mobile application is a trending topic recently, there is also one opencv for mobile application short tutorial. They also gave some example codes/project as well as pre-compiled opencv for both ios and Android. Qualcomm also gave a lunch talk on their FastCV package which is specifically for mobile computer vision on Tuesday (6/19).
the deployment of vision algorithms on smart phones and embedded devices with low memory and computation complexity has even upped the ante: the goal is to make descriptors faster to compute, more compact while remaining robust to scale, rotation and noise. To best address the current requirements, we propose a novel keypoint descriptor inspired by the human visual system and more precisely the retina, coined Fast Retina Keypoint (FREAK). A cascade of binary strings is computed by efficiently comparing image intensities over a retinal sampling pattern.
