Use Zoom? You already know what image matting is. PhD student Yutong Dai wants to make it work better
Have you ever experienced a video call where your hair disappears into greenery in the background, or your hands become invisible when you wave them around to emphasise a point. Through her PhD project at AIML, Yutong Dai wants to make these issues a thing of the past.
Last week AIML researchers attended CVPR 2020. AIML had 23 publications accepted in the conference this year, an increase of more than 50% from previous years. These numbers are comparable to those of institutions orders of magnitude larger, and an incredible result when considering the relative age of AIML.
The Australian Institute for Machine Learning has had six papers accepted to CVPR 2020! Congratulations to all of our researchers involved.
Researchers from the University of Adelaide (computer science, engineering, mathematics) attended workshop sessions earlier this year at the Loxton Research Centre along with Wine Australia and Riverland Wine.
A State Government grant will launch a digital precision control system pilot program for grape growers in the Riverland aiming to assist growers to optimise production and support overall vineyard efficiency, profitability and sustainability. Read the full media release here .
Professor Ian Reid and Professor Anton van den Hengel feature in Rising to global challenges, a 32 page magazine showcasing the innovative and world-class research work being undertaken at the University of Adelaide. You can read about their research here.
Congratulations to Zifeng Wu and Chunhua Shen on having made it to the top of the Cityscapes leaderboard again.
Michael Black and Anton van den Hengel are organising the Second Scenes from Video workshop, which will be held in the Colchagua Valley, one of Chile’s pre-eminent wine regions, and will include a variety of functions and excursions exploring the region and its fare.
