The 2018 Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) took place last week in Salt Lake City, USA. It’s the world’s top conference in the field of computer vision. This year, CVPR received 3,300 main conference paper submissions and accepted 979. Over 6,500 attended the conference and boy was it epic!
...including one paper entitled "Who Let The Dogs Out? Modeling Dog Behavior From Visual Data".
My overall thoughts after reading this are that we are definitely at a different place on the technology adoption cycle for computer vision than we were when I started curating the Roundup in 2015. Back then there were new major achievements released seemingly every month. The current papers are meaningful, but are beginning to tackle more detailed, implementation-level questions like "how do I interpolate 60FPS video into 240FPS video?" This is a good shift: it's an indicator of progress.
Great read to get an understanding of today's cutting edge.Read more...
