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). The conference takes place September 8th through 14th in Munich, Germany.  Visual scene understanding has traditionally focused on identifying objects in images -- learning to predict their… Continue reading What is Graph R-CNN?

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
