Neural Pseudo-Label Optimism for the Bank Loan Problem

no code implementations NeurIPS 2021 Aldo Pacchiano, Shaun Singh, Edward Chou, Alexander C. Berg, Jakob Foerster

The lender only observes whether a customer will repay a loan if the loan is issued to begin with, and thus modeled decisions affect what data is available to the lender for future decisions.

Boundary IoU: Improving Object-Centric Image Segmentation Evaluation

2 code implementations CVPR 2021 Bowen Cheng, Ross Girshick, Piotr Dollár, Alexander C. Berg, Alexander Kirillov

We perform an extensive analysis across different error types and object sizes and show that Boundary IoU is significantly more sensitive than the standard Mask IoU measure to boundary errors for large objects and does not over-penalize errors on smaller objects.
