Task-conditioned Domain Adaptation for Pedestrian Detection in Thermal Imagery

1 code implementation ECCV 2020 My Kieu, Andrew D. Bagdanov, Marco Bertini, Alberto del Bimbo

Despite its broad application and interest, it remains a challenging problem in part due to the vast range of conditions under which it must be robust.

Robust pedestrian detection in thermal imagery using synthesized images

no code implementations3 Feb 2021 My Kieu, Lorenzo Berlincioni, Leonardo Galteri, Marco Bertini, Andrew D. Bagdanov, Alberto del Bimbo

Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach: using less than 50\% of available real thermal training data, and relying on synthesized data generated by our model in the domain adaptation phase, our detector achieves state-of-the-art results on the KAIST Multispectral Pedestrian Detection Benchmark; even if more real thermal data is available adding GAN generated images to the training data results in improved performance, thus showing that these images act as an effective form of data augmentation.

Class-incremental learning: survey and performance evaluation on image classification

1 code implementation28 Oct 2020 Marc Masana, Xialei Liu, Bartlomiej Twardowski, Mikel Menta, Andrew D. Bagdanov, Joost Van de Weijer

For future learning systems incremental learning is desirable, because it allows for: efficient resource usage by eliminating the need to retrain from scratch at the arrival of new data; reduced memory usage by preventing or limiting the amount of data required to be stored -- also important when privacy limitations are imposed; and learning that more closely resembles human learning.

RATT: Recurrent Attention to Transient Tasks for Continual Image Captioning

1 code implementation NeurIPS 2020 Riccardo Del Chiaro, Bartłomiej Twardowski, Andrew D. Bagdanov, Joost Van de Weijer

We call our method Recurrent Attention to Transient Tasks (RATT), and also show how to adapt continual learning approaches based on weight egularization and knowledge distillation to recurrent continual learning problems.

Exploiting Unlabeled Data in CNNs by Self-supervised Learning to Rank

2 code implementations17 Feb 2019 Xialei Liu, Joost Van de Weijer, Andrew D. Bagdanov

Our results show that networks trained to regress to the ground truth targets for labeled data and to simultaneously learn to rank unlabeled data obtain significantly better, state-of-the-art results for both IQA and crowd counting.

Domain-adaptive deep network compression

2 code implementations ICCV 2017 Marc Masana, Joost Van de Weijer, Luis Herranz, Andrew D. Bagdanov, Jose M. Alvarez

We show that domain transfer leads to large shifts in network activations and that it is desirable to take this into account when compressing.
