At RISE Learning Machines Seminar on January 18 2024, we have the pleasure to listen to Serge Belongie, University of Copenhagen, give his talk: Challenges in Fine-Grained Image Analysis.
Fine-grained image analysis (FGIA) is a longstanding and fundamental problem in computer vision and pattern recognition, and underpins a diverse set of real-world applications. The task of FGIA is concerned with visual objects from subordinate categories, e.g., species of birds or models of cars. The small inter-class and large intra-class variation inherent to fine-grained image analysis makes it a challenging problem. Capitalizing on advances in deep learning, in recent years we have witnessed remarkable progress in deep learning powered FGIA.
In this talk we review representative examples in the context of recognition, retrieval, and generation/synthesis. In addition, we also review other key issues of FGIA, such as publicly available benchmark datasets, related domain-specific applications, and connections with other modalities including text and audio. We conclude by highlighting several research directions and open problems.
