From Object Interactions to Fine-grained Video Understanding

Video understanding tasks such as action recognition and caption generation are crucial for various real-world applications in surveillance, video retrieval, human behavior understanding, etc. In this work, we present a generic recurrent module to detect relationships and interactions between arbitrary object groups for fine-grained video understanding. Our work is applicable to various open domain video […]

Syntax-Directed Variational Autoencoder for Structured Data

Advances in deep learning of representation have resulted in powerful generative approaches on modeling continuous data like time series and images, but it is still challenging to correctly deal with discrete structured data, such as chemical molecules and computer programs. To tackle these challenges, there has been many improvements in formalization of structure generation that […]
