Hit-Detector: Hierarchical Trinity Architecture Search for Object Detection [article]

Jianyuan Guo, Kai Han, Yunhe Wang, Chao Zhang, Zhaohui Yang, Han Wu, Xinghao Chen, Chang Xu
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Neural Architecture Search (NAS) has achieved great success in image classification task. Some recent works have managed to explore the automatic design of efficient backbone or feature fusion layer for object detection. However, these methods focus on searching only one certain component of object detector while leaving others manually designed. We identify the inconsistency between searched component and manually designed ones would withhold the detector of stronger performance. To this end,

In addition, we empirically reveal that different parts of the detector prefer different operators. Motivated by this, we employ a novel scheme to automatically screen different sub search spaces for different components so as to perform the end-to-end search for each component on the corresponding sub search space efficiently. Without bells and whistles, our searched architecture, namely Hit-Detector, achieves 41.4\% mAP on COCO minival set with 27M parameters. Our implementation is available at

Generation of ice states through deep reinforcement learning [article]

Kai-Wen Zhao, Wen-Han Kao, Kai-Hsin Wu, Ying-Jer Kao
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We present a deep reinforcement learning framework where a machine agent is trained to search for a policy to generate a ground state for the square ice model by exploring the physical environment. After training, the agent is capable of proposing a sequence of local moves to achieve the goal. Analysis of the trained policy and the state value function indicates that the ice rule and loop-closing condition are learned without prior knowledge. We test the trained policy as a sampler in the

CMT: Convolutional Neural Networks Meet Vision Transformers [article]

Jianyuan Guo, Kai Han, Han Wu, Chang Xu, Yehui Tang, Chunjing Xu, Yunhe Wang
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Vision transformers have been successfully applied to image recognition tasks due to their ability to capture long-range dependencies within an image. However, there are still gaps in both performance and computational cost between transformers and existing convolutional neural networks (CNNs). In this paper, we aim to address this issue and develop a network that can outperform not only the canonical transformers, but also the high-performance convolutional models. We propose a new transformer

Furthermore, we scale it to obtain a family of models, called CMTs, obtaining much better accuracy and efficiency than previous convolution and transformer based models. In particular, our CMT-S achieves 83.5% top-1 accuracy on ImageNet, while being 14x and 2x smaller on FLOPs than the existing DeiT and EfficientNet, respectively. The proposed CMT-S also generalizes well on CIFAR10 (99.2%), CIFAR100 (91.7%), Flowers (98.7%), and other challenging vision datasets such as COCO (44.3% mAP), with considerably less computational cost.

Expanding Sparse Guidance for Stereo Matching [article]

Yu-Kai Huang, Yueh-Cheng Liu, Tsung-Han Wu, Hung-Ting Su, Winston H. Hsu
2020 arXiv   pre-print
The performance of image based stereo estimation suffers from lighting variations, repetitive patterns and homogeneous appearance. Moreover, to achieve good performance, stereo supervision requires sufficient densely-labeled data, which are hard to obtain. In this work, we leverage small amount of data with very sparse but accurate disparity cues from LiDAR to bridge the gap. We propose a novel sparsity expansion technique to expand the sparse cues concerning RGB images for local feature

Extensive experiments on stereo datasets demonstrate the effectiveness and robustness across different backbones on domain adaption and self-supervision scenario. Our sparsity expansion method outperforms previous methods in terms of disparity by more than 2 pixel error on KITTI Stereo 2012 and 3 pixel error on KITTI Stereo 2015. Our approach significantly boosts the existing state-of-the-art stereo algorithms with extremely sparse cues.

Transformer in Transformer [article]

Kai Han, An Xiao, Enhua Wu, Jianyuan Guo, Chunjing Xu, Yunhe Wang
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Transformer is a new kind of neural architecture which encodes the input data as powerful features via the attention mechanism. Basically, the visual transformers first divide the input images into several local patches and then calculate both representations and their relationship. Since natural images are of high complexity with abundant detail and color information, the granularity of the patch dividing is not fine enough for excavating features of objects in different scales and locations.
more » ... n this paper, we point out that the attention inside these local patches are also essential for building visual transformers with high performance and we explore a new architecture, namely, Transformer iN Transformer (TNT). Specifically, we regard the local patches (e.g., 16×16) as "visual sentences" and present to further divide them into smaller patches (e.g., 4×4) as "visual words". The attention of each word will be calculated with other words in the given visual sentence with negligible computational costs. Features of both words and sentences will be aggregated to enhance the representation ability. Experiments on several benchmarks demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed TNT architecture, e.g., we achieve an 81.5 higher than that of the state-of-the-art visual transformer with similar computational cost. The PyTorch code is available at, and the MindSpore code is available at

Hire-MLP: Vision MLP via Hierarchical Rearrangement [article]

Jianyuan Guo, Yehui Tang, Kai Han, Xinghao Chen, Han Wu, Chao Xu, Chang Xu, Yunhe Wang
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Previous vision MLPs such as MLP-Mixer and ResMLP accept linearly flattened image patches as input, making them inflexible for different input sizes and hard to capture spatial information. Such approach withholds MLPs from getting comparable performance with their transformer-based counterparts and prevents them from becoming a general backbone for computer vision. This paper presents Hire-MLP, a simple yet competitive vision MLP architecture via Hierarchical rearrangement, which contains two

Specifically, the inner-region rearrangement is proposed to capture local information inside a spatial region, and the cross-region rearrangement is proposed to enable information communication between different regions and capture global context by circularly shifting all tokens along spatial directions. Extensive experiments demonstrate the effectiveness of Hire-MLP as a versatile backbone for various vision tasks. In particular, Hire-MLP achieves competitive results on image classification, object detection and semantic segmentation tasks, e.g., 83.8 box AP and 44.8 previous transformer-based and MLP-based models with better trade-off for accuracy and throughput.

Deterministic Approximation for Submodular Maximization over a Matroid in Nearly Linear Time [article]

Kai Han, Zongmai Cao, Shuang Cui, Benwei Wu
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We study the problem of maximizing a non-monotone, non-negative submodular function subject to a matroid constraint. The prior best-known deterministic approximation ratio for this problem is 1/4-ϵ under 𝒪((n^4/ϵ)log n) time complexity. We show that this deterministic ratio can be improved to 1/4 under 𝒪(nr) time complexity, and then present a more practical algorithm dubbed TwinGreedyFast which achieves 1/4-ϵ deterministic ratio in nearly-linear running time of 𝒪(n/ϵlogr/ϵ). Our approach is

As a byproduct of this framework, we also show that TwinGreedyFast achieves 1/2p+2-ϵ deterministic ratio under a p-set system constraint with the same time complexity. To showcase the practicality of our approach, we empirically evaluated the performance of TwinGreedyFast on two network applications, and observed that it outperforms the state-of-the-art deterministic and randomized algorithms with efficient implementations for our problem.

2012 Biomedical Journal  
The aim of this study was to present our experience with a novel approach called the pierce and push (PP) method which uses a stainless steel centimeter probe instead of a 5 mm claw forceps to enucleate fibroids in a laparoscopic myomectomy (LM). Methods: A retrospective chart review of 90 women with symptomatic uterine fibroids who underwent an LM was performed. Cases of LM with the PP method were compared with a matched control group of LM with a 5 mm claw forceps. The operative time, tumor

Results: The two groups were matched by age, body mass index, previous cesarean delivery, main fibroid size, and number and weight of fibroids. The tumor separation time was significantly shorter in the PP group than the claw forceps group (9.7 3.1 minutes versus 17.1 4.4 minutes, p < 0.001). The length of the operation, hospitalization time, specimen removal time, amount of blood loss, and requirement for blood transfusion were not significantly different between groups. Conclusion: A stainless steel centimeter probe has an advantage over a 5 mm claw forceps in pushing and pulling fibroids. Our findings indicate that the PP method was much more effective in excision of fibroids than a 5 mm claw grasper in LM. (Chang Gung Med J 2012;35:160-6)
