[Talk] Sketch-based 3D Shape Retrieval using Convolutional Neural Networks

Today in CFAR seminar, Dr. Yi Li and his student Fang Wang from Australian National University ented the work on Sketch-based 3D Shape Retrieval using Convolutional Neural Networks. Here is the paper in arXiv. Here is my summary: Yet-another-CNN-application The question for superior performance What if I don’t have 100 GPUs like Google / Facebook? What if I don’t…

2015 UMIACS Featured Talk: 3D Urban Sensing and Visualization

This is the best talk I have attended in this semester! See the amazing publications for details: http://www.cs.sdu.edu.cn/~baoquan/publications.html Abstract    3D modeling of urban environments starts to play an increasingly important role in the emerging technologies from self-driving car to augmented reality. Beyond helping a human or a vehicle navigate, 3D urban models provide a base…
