SIMONe: View-Invariant, Temporally-Abstracted Object Representations via Unsupervised Video Decomposition [article]

Rishabh Kabra, Daniel Zoran, Goker Erdogan, Loic Matthey, Antonia Creswell, Matthew Botvinick, Alexander Lerchner, Christopher P. Burgess
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Leveraging the shared structure that exists across different scenes, our model learns to infer two sets of latent representations from RGB video input alone: a set of "object" latents, corresponding to  ...  Moreover, it allows us to disentangle object dynamics and summarize their trajectories as time-abstracted, view-invariant, per-object properties.  ...  For static ARI-F, we evaluate the models per still image. For video ARI-F, we evaluate the models across space and time, taking an object’s full trajectory as a single class.  ...

Improved prosody generation by maximizing joint likelihood of state and longer units

Yao Qian, Zhizheng Wu, Frank K. Soong
2009 2009 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing  
The blandness of synthesized prosody is partially due to the fact that a state-based HMM is rather inadequate in modeling a global, hierarchical prosodic structure at a sentence or phrase level.  ...  The resultant models are then integrated with the state-level baseline models to generate an optimal prosody by maximizing the joint likelihood of all, from state to longer, units.  ...  F0 trajectory is generated with dynamic feature constraint. For a given HMM model λ, it determines a sequence of F0, F = f0, ..., fT −1, which maximizes log P (O|λ) with respect to O = W F .  ...
