3D Deceptive Textures for Physical World Adversarial Attacks
Deep learning offers state-of-the-art solutions for multiple computer vision tasks. How-ever, deep neural models are vulnerable to slight input perturbations that can significantly change model...
Deep Learning for Multiple Object Tracking
Multiple Object Tracking (MOT) plays an important role in solving many fundamental problems in video analysis. MOT involves object detection followed by object association. While object detection...
Deep Learning over 3D Point Clouds
3D point clouds are becoming an important data source for vision tasks such as auton-omous driving and robotic perception. However, deep learning over unstructured point clouds is challenging. We...
Dense 3D Face Correspondence for Deep 3D Face Recognition and Medical Applications
In this talk, I will present our research on dense 3D face correspondence which is a core problem in facial analysis for many applications such as biometric identification, symptomatology for the...
Learning from Legacy MoCap Data for Precision Modelling of 3D Human Motion for Behavioural and Performance Analysis
Modelling human actions is useful for surveillance, sports and medical applications. State of the art models are based on deep learning from large amounts of annotated data which is expensive to...
Threat of Adversarial Attacks on Deep Learning in Computer Vision
Deep learning is at the heart of the current rise of artificial intelligence. However, deep models are vulnerable to adversarial attacks in the form of subtle perturbations to inputs that make the...
