Choose Your Neuron: Incorporating Domain Knowledge through Neuron-Importance

By: Prithvijit Chattopadhyay and Ramprasaath R. Selvaraju (Paper authors include Ramprasaath R. Selvaraju, Prithvijit Chattopadhyay, Mohamed Elhoseiny, Tilak Sharma, Dhruv Batra, Devi Parikh, and Stefan Lee) Deep Neural Networks have pushed the boundaries of standard image-classification tasks in the past few years, with performance on many challenging benchmarks reaching near human-level accuracies. One of the… Continue reading Choose Your Neuron: Incorporating Domain Knowledge through Neuron-Importance

What is Graph R-CNN?

By Jianwei Yang and Jiasen Lu The following post breaks down Graph R-CNN for Scene Graph Generation, which will be presented at the European Conference on Computer Vision 2018 (ECCV).

SHIELD: Defending Deep Neural Networks from Adversarial Attacks

by Nilaksh Das, PhD student at Georgia Institute of Technology in the School of Computational Science and Engineering. Das is advised by Polo Chau. “SHIELD is a fast and practical approach to defend deep neural networks from adversarial attacks. This work proposes a multifaceted framework which incorporates compression, randomization, model-retraining, and ensembling to make computer vision models robust to adversarial… Continue reading SHIELD: Defending Deep Neural Networks from Adversarial Attacks
