Deep Representations, Adversarial Learning and Domain Adaptation for Some Computer Vision Problems

Prof. Rama Chellappa
Distinguished University Professor
Minta Martin Professor of Engineering and Chair
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
University of Maryland

Date: July 6, 2018 (Friday)
Time: 4:00 - 5:00 pm
Venue: LT1 (SCT501), Cha Chi Ming Science Tower, Ho Sin Hang Campus

Recent developments in deep representation-based methods for many computer vision problems have knocked down many research themes pursued over the last four decades. In this talk, I will discuss methods based on deep representations for designing robust computer vision systems with applications in unconstrained face and action verification and recognition, expression recognition, subject clustering and attribute extraction. The face and action recognition system being built at UMD is based on fusing multiple deep convolutional neural networks (DCNNs) trained using publicly available still and video face data sets and task appropriate loss functions. I will then discuss some new results on generative adversarial learning and domain adaptation for improving the robustness of computer vision systems.

Prof. Rama Chellappa is a Distinguished University Professor, a Minta Martin Professor of Engineering and Chair of the ECE department at the University of Maryland. His current research interests span many areas in image processing, computer vision, machine learning and pattern recognition. Prof. Chellappa is a recipient of an NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award and four IBM Faculty Development Awards. He received the K.S. Fu Prize from the International Association of Pattern Recognition (IAPR). He is a recipient of the Society, Technical Achievement and Meritorious Service Awards from the IEEE Signal Processing Society. He also received the Technical Achievement and Meritorious Service Awards from the IEEE Computer Society. Recently, he received the inaugural Leadership Award from the IEEE Biometrics Council. At UMD, he received college and university level recognitions for research, teaching, innovation and mentoring of undergraduate students. In 2010, he was recognized as an Outstanding ECE by Purdue University. He received the Distinguished Alumni Award from the Indian Institute of Science in 2016. Prof. Chellappa served as the Editor-in-Chief of PAMI. He is a Golden Core Member of the IEEE Computer Society, served as a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Signal Processing Society and as the President of IEEE Biometrics Council. He is a Fellow of IEEE, IAPR, OSA, AAAS, ACM and AAAI and holds six patents.
