Speech Title: "Learning Deep Image Restoration Network: From Full- and Self-supervision to Non-ideal Supervision"

Abstract: Deep learning has made unprecedented success in many computer vision tasks, which largely depends on massive well annotated data. However, the annotation cost is expensive and laborious, making unsupervised/self-supervised learning as feasible alternatives for training deep networks. In this talk, we first introduce a novel self-supervised method by learning both noise model and deep denoising network. Subsequently, we present a self-supervised adaptation model for adapting a denoising network to new domains and devices. Then, we show that the ideal ground-truth images are not available for deep ISP and Raw super-resolution, and present our alternative solution for learning deep networks with non-ideal supervision (e.g., color inconsistency and spatial deformation). Finally, we discuss the potential to incorporate self-supervised learning and multiple sensors for learning deep image restoration models.

Speech Title: "Transform Image Understanding with Artificial Intelligence"

Abstract: There are many questions to answer in image interpretation and understanding. Uncertainty in image analysis needs strong and powerful modelling tools to describe the objects in the images. Artificial intelligence (AI) plays a very important role in the design of a robust tool for image representation. Using some examples from his own research work on uncertainty analysis, he will explore how AI can stimulate new concepts or development of dealing with complicated problems and lead to novel adventures through these applications.
