Stingray Detection of Aerial Images Using Augmented Training Images Generated by A Conditional Generative Model [article]

Yi-Min Chou, Chien-Hung Chen, Keng-Hao Liu, Chu-Song Chen
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Unlike traditional data augmentation methods that generate new data only for image classification, our proposed method that mixes foreground and background together can generate new data for an object  ...  In this paper, we present an object detection method that tackles the stingray detection problem based on aerial images.  ...  We introduce a data augmentation method called mixed bg-fg synthesis to fuse background patches and foreground objects without apparent artifacts, which is achieved by a new generative network C-GLO.  ...

Detecting Biological Locomotion in Video: A Computational Approach [article]

Soo Min Kang, Richard P. Wildes
2021 arXiv   pre-print
An alternative algorithm, based on generic features combined with learning is assembled out of components from allied areas of investigation, also is presented as a basis of comparison.  ...  Quantitative results indicate that the proposed algorithm considerably outperforms the alternative approach, supporting the hypothesis that biolocomotion can be detected reliably based on its distinct  ...  Acknowledgements The authors thank Robert Allison, Michael Brown, Marcus Brubaker, Dorita Chang and Nikolaus Troje for valuable comments on the work presented in this report.  ...

Deep one-class learning: a deep learning approach to anomaly detection [article]

Lukas Ruff, Technische Universität Berlin, Klaus-Robert Müller, Marius Kloft
This thesis proposes Deep One-Class Learning, a deep learning approach to anomaly detection that is based on the one-class classification paradigm.  ...  The lack of effective solutions in such settings has sparked an interest in developing anomaly detection methods based on deep learning, which has enabled breakthroughs in other machine learning problems  ...  Methods based on one-class classification try to avoid a full estimation of the probability density as an intermediate step to anomaly detection.  ...

Multimodal sensor-based control for human-robot interaction

Andrea Cherubini, Andrea
Traditionally, heterogeneous sensor data was fed to fusion algorithms (e.g., Kalman or Bayesian-based), so as to provide state estimation for modeling the environment.  ...  Each of these axes will be presented here, before concluding with a general view of the issues at stake, and on the research projects that I plan to carry out in the upcoming years.  ...  Acknowledgements It would have been impossible for me to accomplish the research work presented in this manuscript without the fundamental help of friends and colleagues, first in Rennes and then in Montpellier  ... 

Landmarks: reading the Gove Peninsula [article]

Kitty Eggerking, University, The Australian National, University, The Australian National
To chart a course through the two disparate traditions, much of the focus is on the ways that land is conceptualised.  ...  For instance, it takes into account the instability of the Menzies government in 1963; and, further, it examines the relevant parliamentary standing orders to show that the bark petitions were in order  ...  7 One construction camp was at Wallaby Beach, the other was located close to where the Gove Peninsula Motel now stands.  ...
