Report Title: Salient Object Detection

Abstract: Salient object detection aims to mimic the human visual system and cognition mechanisms to identify and segment salient objects. However, due to the complexity of these mechanisms, current methods are not perfect. Accuracy and robustness need to be further improved, particularly in complex scenes with multiple objects and background clutter. In this talk, two methods are presented. The first approach estimates depth information from monocular RGB images and leverage the intermediate depth features to enhance the saliency detection performance in a deep neural network framework. Although many other RGB-D saliency models have also been proposed, they require to acquire depth data, which are expensive and not easy to obtain. The second approach adopts the boundary sensibility, content integrity, iterative refinement, and frequency decomposition mechanisms. A multi-level hybrid loss is designed to guide the network to learn pixel-level, region-level, and object-level features. Comprehensive evaluations on challenging benchmark datasets show the achievements of state-of-the-art results of the proposed approaches.

Report Title: Removing redundant computation in 3D scene rendering using limitations of human visual perception

Abstract: Rendering of realistic 3D scenes is crucial for applications such as movie production, virtual reality, computer games, and so on. Realism and speed are two important factors that need to be carefully considered in designing a rendering system of realistic 3D scenes. Generally, the demand for high realism causes slow rendering, and the demand for high rendering speed leads to low realism. The human visual system is the ultimate consumer of most imagery produced by realistic 3D scene rendering. In fact, it is unnecessary to render the visual details of 3D scenes that cannot be perceived by the human visual system. The rendering of 3D scenes can be accelerated by removing the unnecessary operations that only contribute to producing the imperceptible visual details, and meanwhile the visually perceived realism of the 3D scenes does not deteriorate. In this speech, firstly the theory of human visual perception will be briefly introduced; then the approaches to removing the unnecessary redundant computation in 3D scene rendering will be delivered; finally, the experimental results obtained by the speaker’s group will be presented and discussed.

Report Title: Intelligence-Enabled Vehicular Networking and Edge Computing

Abstract: Vehicular networking and edge computing (VMC) has been studied profoundly aiming to provide the efficient connectivity among vehicles and infrastructures to access to various of applications in which such networks can support all types of services in the internet of vehicles (IoV). Over the past two decades, VANET (vehicular ad-hoc network) has been studied to connect the vehicles in wide areas with its multi-hop connectivity. However, traditional VANET still faces challenges to enable intelligent networking and communication with its decentralized nature in which individual vehicle lacks the ability to collect and compute such large amount of data. Hence, learning algorithms and dedicated networking architecture should be applied to improve the networking quality. In this talk, the speaker will present the AI-enabled vehicular networking techniques and the related architectures. Further, this talk will also provide comprehensive introduction of vehicular networking, edge computing, in terms of softwarized networking, intelligent caching and offloading.
