We’ve had another great year in the ImageNet competition. We came 2nd in the Scene Parsing challenge, which requires pixelwise segmentation of a large set of images into 150 classes of things and stuff. The ImageNet Challenge is one of the most hotly contested challenges in Computer Vision, and is constantly updated to reflect the current […]
In conjunction with the success of the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision’s workshops at CVPR2015 in Boston: Workshop on Semantics for Visual Reconstruction, Localization and Mapping Workshop on Visual Place Recognition in Changing Environments An ACRV team was also successful in attaining the Best Workshop Paper Award for the IEEE – Workshop on Computer Vision […]
Professor Ian Reid and colleagues from Oxford have been awarded the Best Paper Award at the International Conference on 3D Vision, held in Tokyo, Japan from 8-11 December 2014 The paper, titled “3D Tracking of Multiple Objects with Identical Appearance using RGB-D Input”, was authored by Carl Yuheng Ren, Victor Prisacariu, Olaf Kaehler, Ian Reid […]
Zhenhua Wang, a final year PhD student at ACVT has won the prestigious Best Paper prize at the 12th Asian Conference on Computer Vision (ACCV14) in Singapore. His paper “A message passing algorithm for MRF inference with unknown graphs and its applications” was co-authored with Zhiyi Zhang and Geng Nan of the Northwest A&F University, […]
Prof. Ian Reid of the ACVT has been awarded an ARC Laureate Fellowship valued at $3,179,946. The aim of the project is to develop robust computer vision systems that can operate over a wide area and over long periods. This is a major challenge because the geometry and appearance of an environment can change over […]
