Unsupervised Learning of Edges


Data-driven approaches for edge detection have proven effective and achieve top results on modern benchmarks. However, all current data-driven edge detectors require manual supervision for training in the form of hand-labeled region segments or object boundaries.

End-to-End Voxel-to-Voxel Prediction

Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR)

Over the last few years deep learning methods have emerged as one of the most prominent approaches for video analysis with most successful applications having been in the area of video classification and detection. In this paper we challenge these views by presenting a deep 3D convolutional architecture trained end to end to perform voxel-level prediction, i.e., to output a variable at every voxel of the video.

Recurrent Orthogonal Networks and Long-Memory Tasks

International Conference on Machine Learning

This paper analyzes two synthetic datasets originally outlined in (Hochreiter and Schmidhuber, 1997) which are used to evaluate the ability of RNNs to store information over many time steps and explicitly construct RNN solutions to these problems.

Learning Physical Intuition of Block Towers by Example

International Conference on Machine Learning

Wooden blocks are a common toy for infants, allowing them to develop motor skills and gain intuition about the physical behavior of the world. In this paper, we explore the ability of deep feed-forward models to learn such intuitive physics.
