Holistic word recognition in handwritten documents is an important research topic in the field of Document Image Analysis. For some applications, given strong language models, it can be more robust and computationally less expensive than character segmentation and recognition. This paper presents HH-CompWordNet, a novel approach to applying a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) to directly to the DCT coefficients of the compressed domain word images.


Segmentation of unseen industrial parts is essential for autonomous industrial systems. However, industrial components are texture-less, reflective, and often found in cluttered and unstructured environments with heavy occlusion, which makes it more challenging to deal with unseen objects. To tackle this problem, we present a synthetic data generation pipeline that randomizes textures via domain randomization to focus on the shape information.


Recently, many deep learning methods have been used to handle single image super-resolution (SISR) tasks and often achieve state-of-the-art performance. From a visual point of view, the results look convincing. Yet, does it mean that those techniques are reliable and robust enough to be implemented in real business cases to enhance the performance of other computer vision tasks?


Face detection and recognition in the wild is currently one of the most interesting and challenging problems. Many algorithms with high performance have already been proposed and applied in real-world applications. However, the problem of detecting and recognising degraded faces from low-quality images and videos mostly remains unsolved. In this paper, we present an algorithm capable of recovering facial features from low-quality videos and images. The resulting output image boosts the performance of existing face detection and recognition algorithms.


Canonical correlation analysis (CCA) describes the relationship between two sets of variables by finding linear combinations of the variables with maximal correlation. Recently, under the assumption that the leading canonical correlation directions are sparse, various procedures have been proposed for many high-dimensional applications to improve the interpretability of CCA. However all these procedures have the inconvenience of not preserving the sparsity among the retained leading canonical directions. To address this issue, a new sparse CCA method is proposed in this paper.


The ability of deep neural networks to extract complex statistics and learn high level features from vast datasets is proven.Yet current deep learning approaches suffer from poor sample efficiency in stark contrast to human perception. Fewshot learning algorithms such as matching networks or ModelAgnostic Meta Learning (MAML) mitigate this problem, enabling fast learning with few examples. In this paper, we ex-tend the MAML algorithm to point cloud data using a Point-Net Architecture.
