VrR-VG: Refocusing Visually-Relevant Relationships [article]

Yuanzhi Liang, Yalong Bai, Wei Zhang, Xueming Qian, Li Zhu, Tao Mei
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Suffering from the high predictability with non-visual information, existing methods tend to fit the statistical bias rather than "learning" to "infer" the relationships from images.  ...  Relationships encode the interactions among individual instances, and play a critical role in deep visual scene understanding.  ...  The experimental results demonstrate that the visually-relevant relationship plays an important role in high-level visual understanding.  ...

RethNet: Object-by-Object Learning for Detecting Facial Skin Problems [article]

Shohrukh Bekmirzaev, Seoyoung Oh, Sangwook Yoo
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Detecting individual skin lesion in a dense group is a challenging task, because of ambiguities in the appearance of the visual data.  ...  Therefore, we propose REthinker blocks that are composed of the locally constructed convLSTM/Conv3D layers and SE module as a one-shot attention mechanism whose responsibility is to increase network's  ...  The lesion classes that have visual similarity can be seen as a fine-grained classification problem. There are 2594 images for training, 100 images for validation, and 1000 images for the test.  ...

What Remains of Visual Semantic Embeddings [article]

Yue Jiao, Jonathon Hare, Adam Prügel-Bennett
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Our work makes it fair for evaluating visual semantic embedding models on a ZSL setting in which semantic inference is decisive.  ...  We build a unified framework for ZSL with contrastive learning as pre-training, which guarantees no semantic information leakage and encourages linearly separable visual features.  ...  ZSL is also an important task for demonstrating how a machine learning model understands high-level semantic information and transfers knowledge from seen to unseen classes.  ...
