Bootstrap Your Own Correspondences [article]

Mohamed El Banani, Justin Johnson
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Geometric feature extraction is a crucial component of point cloud registration pipelines. Recent work has demonstrated how supervised learning can be leveraged to learn better and more compact 3D features. However, those approaches' reliance on ground-truth annotation limits their scalability. We propose BYOC: a self-supervised approach that learns visual and geometric features from RGB-D video without relying on ground-truth pose or correspondence. Our key observation is that
more » ... zed CNNs readily provide us with good correspondences; allowing us to bootstrap the learning of both visual and geometric features. Our approach combines classic ideas from point cloud registration with more recent representation learning approaches. We evaluate our approach on indoor scene datasets and find that our method outperforms traditional and learned descriptors, while being competitive with current state-of-the-art supervised approaches.

Inverting and Understanding Object Detectors [article]

Ang Cao, Justin Johnson
2021 arXiv   pre-print
As a core problem in computer vision, the performance of object detection has improved drastically in the past few years. Despite their impressive performance, object detectors suffer from a lack of interpretability. Visualization techniques have been developed and widely applied to introspect the decisions made by other kinds of deep learning models; however, visualizing object detectors has been underexplored. In this paper, we propose using inversion as a primary tool to understand modern

We reveal intriguing properties of detectors by applying our layout inversion technique to a variety of modern object detectors, and further investigate them via validation experiments: they rely on qualitatively different features for classification and regression; they learn canonical motifs of commonly co-occurring objects; they use diff erent visual cues to recognize objects of varying sizes. We hope our insights can help practitioners improve object detectors.

Mesh R-CNN [article]

Georgia Gkioxari, Jitendra Malik, Justin Johnson
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Rapid advances in 2D perception have led to systems that accurately detect objects in real-world images. However, these systems make predictions in 2D, ignoring the 3D structure of the world. Concurrently, advances in 3D shape prediction have mostly focused on synthetic benchmarks and isolated objects. We unify advances in these two areas. We propose a system that detects objects in real-world images and produces a triangle mesh giving the full 3D shape of each detected object. Our system,
more » ... d Mesh R-CNN, augments Mask R-CNN with a mesh prediction branch that outputs meshes with varying topological structure by first predicting coarse voxel representations which are converted to meshes and refined with a graph convolution network operating over the mesh's vertices and edges. We validate our mesh prediction branch on ShapeNet, where we outperform prior work on single-image shape prediction. We then deploy our full Mesh R-CNN system on Pix3D, where we jointly detect objects and predict their 3D shapes.

Image Generation from Scene Graphs [article]

Justin Johnson, Agrim Gupta, Li Fei-Fei
2018 arXiv   pre-print
To truly understand the visual world our models should be able not only to recognize images but also generate them. To this end, there has been exciting recent progress on generating images from natural language descriptions. These methods give stunning results on limited domains such as descriptions of birds or flowers, but struggle to faithfully reproduce complex sentences with many objects and relationships. To overcome this limitation we propose a method for generating images from scene

Our model uses graph convolution to process input graphs, computes a scene layout by predicting bounding boxes and segmentation masks for objects, and converts the layout to an image with a cascaded refinement network. The network is trained adversarially against a pair of discriminators to ensure realistic outputs. We validate our approach on Visual Genome and COCO-Stuff, where qualitative results, ablations, and user studies demonstrate our method's ability to generate complex images with multiple objects.

HiDDeN: Hiding Data With Deep Networks [article]

Jiren Zhu, Russell Kaplan, Justin Johnson, Li Fei-Fei
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Recent work has shown that deep neural networks are highly sensitive to tiny perturbations of input images, giving rise to adversarial examples. Though this property is usually considered a weakness of learned models, we explore whether it can be beneficial. We find that neural networks can learn to use invisible perturbations to encode a rich amount of useful information. In fact, one can exploit this capability for the task of data hiding. We jointly train encoder and decoder networks, where

We show that these encodings are competitive with existing data hiding algorithms, and further that they can be made robust to noise: our models learn to reconstruct hidden information in an encoded image despite the presence of Gaussian blurring, pixel-wise dropout, cropping, and JPEG compression. Even though JPEG is non-differentiable, we show that a robust model can be trained using differentiable approximations. Finally, we demonstrate that adversarial training improves the visual quality of encoded images.

The Agency Model and MFN Clauses

Justin P. Johnson
2013 Social Science Research Network  
I provide a general analysis of vertical relations that are intermediated either with wholesale prices or with revenue-sharing contracts. Although revenuesharing does not eliminate double markups, it nonetheless tends to lower retail prices. Revenue-sharing is extremely attractive to the firm that is able to set the revenue shares, but often makes the other firm worse off. These results hold even when there is imperfect competition at both layers of the supply chain. I also show that retail

These results explain why many online retailers have adopted the "agency model" (in which they set revenue shares and suppliers set retail prices) and price-parity clauses. Finally, in an extension that considers private bargaining, I show that unobservable delegations can have equilibrium effects, and identify how pricing discretion can improve a firm's bargaining position.
