Scene Understanding Challenge for Autonomous Navigation in Unstructured Environments, at ECCV 2018

As Part of First International Workshop On Autonomous Navigation in Unconstrained Environments, the workshop adopts a broad view of what is entailed by driving in unconstrained environments. Besides those aspects, this workshop also poses the challenge of autonomous driving in less constrained traffic, along with infrastructure that is not always dependable.

First International Workshop On Autonomous Navigation in Unconstrained Environments, at ECCV 2018

Autonomous driving has recently emerged as a keystone problem for computer vision and machine learning, with significant interest in both academia and industry. Besides being a rich source of research problems for visual perception, learning, mapping and planning, it is also poised to have immense societal and economic impact. Several large efforts from the automotive industry have projected imminent deployment of Level 3 autonomous systems [1], with a few efforts also geared towards Level 5 autonomy in the near future [2]. But reliable solutions have been trained and validated only in controlled environments, while a vast majority of road conditions deviate from the ideal. This workshop calls for intensive engagement from the research community to address this problem and proposes a benchmark dataset with rich annotations in relatively unconstrained conditions to facilitate the effort. A higher level goal is to percolate autonomous driving to domains where road infrastructure is sub-optimal for computer vision and machine learning, but which stand to gain immeasurably from its benefits.


Machine Learning finds application in areas as diverse as neuroscience, biomedical informatics, drug discovery, speech recognition, language processing, computer vision, recommender systems, learning theory, robotics and games. In continutian to our previous series of summer schools this year's theme is "Advances In Modern AI".


Computer Vision is a rapidly evolving field with its applications being steadily integrated into our day to day lives. The field has received a wide interest from various stakeholders ranging from theoretical researchers, application designers and developers and even business entities. In continutian to our previous summer school this year's theme is "Basics of Modern AI".


The ML summer school is slightly theoretical in nature but sufficient practical exercises would be covered to enable a better understanding of the theoretical track. Primary theme for this year’s summer school is chosen to be Deep Learning, seeing the recent trends of its rise. Experts in the field will deliver talks to share their views and works with the attendees and you are more than welcome to interact and discuss ideas with the speakers. It will also be a good platform to bounce ideas amongst other like-minded enthusiasts. The primary focus of the summer school this time would be on the more recent advancements in the field of Deep Learning.


The summer school curriculum roughly consists of a series of lectures and demo/labs sessions designed to work in tandem to help you make the most out of the program. Experts in the field will deliver talks to share their views and works with the attendees and you are more than welcome to interact and discuss ideas with the speakers. It will also be a good platform to bounce ideas amongst other like-minded enthusiasts. This time we aim to have a special focus on the recent advances in the area.

Short Course on Deep Learning 2016

Deep learning has resulted in the best solutions for many challenging computer vision problems in recent years. The course on Deep Learning at IIIT Hyderabad aims to keep the pace with the rapid growth in this field, and expose the advances to working professionals and researchers. The course will focus on foundations, recent advances with special emphasis to running on limited memory platforms and the practical aspects of using deep learning for a variety of computer vision problems.

Tutorial on MAP Estimation and Structured Prediction in Document Image Analysis, ICPR 2014

Many problems in document image analysis are being formulated as maximum a posteriori (MAP) estimation in a Markov/conditional random field (MRF/CRF) setting. Examples include restoration, binarization, segmentation,and recognition. This class of formulations has resulted in the development of elegant algorithms for many challenging problems in this area. Often the output of these inferencing algorithms is a structured description (e.g., a string of characters, an array of labelled pixels, a tree/graph description of a document image). In this tutorial, we would like to connect the two well established areas (i.e., document image analysis, structured prediction by MAP estimation), and demonstrate how systematic development of robust algorithms can be enabled.

Tutorial on Building Scalable Solutions for Document Retrieval and Recognition, DAS 2014

Scalability of a given solution is an important consideration towards enabling retrieval and recognition over large collections of document images. However, the definitions of scalability are fast changing with the emergence of huge datasets and digital libraries, as well as the advent of new computing paradigms. In this tutorial, we shall cover three approaches towards building scalable document image retrieval and recognition systems:

  • Recognition-free retrieval using bag-of-visual-words
  • Recognition of word-images using indexing schemes
  • Large-scale testing/deployment using cloud computing

This tutorial shall include a parallel hands-on practical session, where the attendees would have the opportunity to practice the methods described in the tutorial. A dataset, along with the necessary code libraries, will be provided to the audience. Multiple solution stacks shall be deployed and evaluated by the various groups/individuals, with a scalable retrieval system being built by the end of the tutorial.

Workshop on Computer Vision 2008, IIIT Hyderabad

Asian Conference on Computer Vision 2006, IIIT Hyderabad

7th Asian Conference on Computer Vision 2006, ACCV '06 was held from January 13, 2006 to January 16, 2006 at Hyderabad. The conference was organized by IIIT Hyderabad. The past conferences in this biennial series were held in Korea (ACCV'04), Australia (ACCV'02), Taiwan (ACCV'00), Hong Kong (ACCV'98), Singapore (ACCV'95), and Japan (ACCV'93).

Computer Vision on GPUs (CVGPU)

Course at CVPR 2009, The GPUs have emerged as a useful computing co-processor that is readily available and economical. The latest commodity GPUs are rated for a peak performance of around 1 TFLOPs at the cost of $400 or so. The recent demand for high performance techniques has led to the adaptation of GPUs for various computer vision algorithms. Many computer vision algorithms are well-suited for processing on the GPU due to the match of the data-parallel computations to many operations on images. Recent advances such as CUDA and the OpenCL standard have the potential to accelerate the use of GPUs in many areas for more general purpose computing, including Computer vision. This course aims to familiarize computer vision researchers with the emerging and exciting area of fast computer vision algorithms on the GPU. It will give an introduction to the programming of the current state-of-the-art hardware to enable participants to employ the unique capabilities of GPUs.
