Robust Segmentation of Highly Dynamic Scene with Missing Data

Yinhui ZHANG, Zifen HE, Changyu LIU
2015 IEICE transactions on information and systems  
Inpainting depleted images using total variation facilitates detecting ambiguous objects from highly dynamic images, because it is more likely to yield areas of object instances with improved grayscale  ...  To make this possible, we exploit convex optimization of total variation beforehand for images with missing data in which depletion mask is available.  ...  In contrast, by inpainting the depleted images and meanwhile enhancing the relative contrast of foreground objects through ADMM based total variation approach, we can obtain more accurate segmentation  ...

Explainable Face Recognition [article]

Jonathan R. Williford, Brandon B. May, Jeffrey Byrne
2020 arXiv   pre-print
An explainable face matcher is tasked with generating a network attention map which best explains which regions in a probe image match with a mated image, and not with an inpainted nonmate for each triplet  ...  Finally, we show qualitative visualization of these network attention techniques on novel images, and explore how these explainable face recognition models can improve transparency and trust for facial  ...  The views and conclusions contained herein are those of the authors and should not be interpreted as necessarily representing the official policies or endorsements, either expressed or implied, of ODNI  ...

Modeling Gestalt Visual Reasoning on the Raven's Progressive Matrices Intelligence Test Using Generative Image Inpainting Techniques [article]

Tianyu Hua, Maithilee Kunda
2019 arXiv   pre-print
In this work, we investigate how Gestalt visual reasoning on the Raven's test can be modeled using generative image inpainting techniques from computer vision.  ...  We also show that models trained on other datasets (faces, places, and textures) do not perform as well.  ...  In general, most recent neural-networkbased image inpainting algorithms represent some combination of variational autoencoders (VAE) and generative adversarial networks (GAN) and typically contain an encoder  ...

Object removal in panoramic media

Andrew MacQuarrie, Anthony Steed
2015 Proceedings of the 12th European Conference on Visual Media Production - CVMP '15  
Secondly, inpainting in 360°images is examined, with an exploration of how the choice of projection affects the inpainting result.  ...  Due in large part to new consumer virtual reality systems, panoramic media is an increasingly popular image and video format.  ...  Standard media has a comparatively small FOV, so often the entire screen is filled with salient content. Panoramic media, in contrast, generally has a large amount of non-salient content.  ...

Image Inpainting by Patch Propagation Using Patch Sparsity

Zongben Xu, Jian Sun
2010 IEEE Transactions on Image Processing  
Compared with the traditional examplar-based inpainting approach, structure sparsity enables better discrimination of structure and texture, and the patch sparse representation forces the newly inpainted  ...  regions to be sharp and consistent with the surrounding textures.  ...  Chan and Shen [3] proposed a variational framework based on total variation (TV) to recover the missing information.  ...
