OVERVIEW

Internship/PhD scholarship at INRIA - LEAR research group INRIA Grenoble

Posted by Rebecca Martin on Mon, 03/03/2014 - 10:03

http://lear.inrialpes.fr

The goal of this internship/PhD is to improve the current performance
of object detection systems on several fronts. The ideal candidate
will first do an internship and then continue with a PhD.
Applying directly for a PhD is also possible. Please do not apply for
internships only.

In order to improve current object detectors, the objectives here are
two-fold: (a) to make the representation more robust and distinctive
and (b) to collect additional training data to better model the
variability of object categories.

PASCAL VOC datatsets - two new features added

Posted by Rebecca Martin on Mon, 10/02/2014 - 10:58

We are pleased to announce two new features for the PASCAL Visual Object Classes evaluation server:

1) Leaderboards (similar to the scoreboard comparisons for evaluations on the Middlebury datasets) are now available for the VOC 2010, 2011 and 2012 datasets, see http://host.robots.ox.ac.uk:8080/leaderboard/ .
A submission is by default private, but you can choose to "publish"
it to the relevant leaderboard.

2) The ability to generate an anonymized URL, suitable for inclusion in a conference submission, giving the performance summary for a submitted entry.
