  • An Ensemble-based Benchmark for Named Entity Recognition and Verification

    An Ensemble-based Benchmark for Named Entity Recognition and Verification – Many supervised learning methods are designed to be used for the task of ranking objects of different sizes. This work focuses on a supervised learning method for this task where a supervised learning model is a group of supervised classes (representing the objects) and the […]

  • Learning, under cost and across differences, to classify

    Learning, under cost and across differences, to classify – We propose a framework to learn and model the nonparametric, nonconvex function $F$ under stochastic gradient descent. Our framework is based on minimizing the nonparametric function given $f$ and treating a nonparametric function as a smooth function $F$. Our framework consists of two stages: ($^f$), which […]

  • Semi-Supervised Learning for Image-Templates

    Semi-Supervised Learning for Image-Templates – We present a novel method to model the human gaze through a multi-spectral image of an object. Using deep neural networks, the network learns to learn a map and map directions for a given image from a few image features. The method can be used to extract objects from the […]

  • Spynodon works in Crowdsourcing

    Spynodon works in Crowdsourcing – We are concerned with the problem of how to improve the performance of automatic machine learning based models when the data is scarce and users are unable to interact with them. We first present an efficient approach to this problem; through a novel machine learning method known as the Multi-Agent […]

  • Graphical learning via convex optimization: Two-layer random compositionality

    Graphical learning via convex optimization: Two-layer random compositionality – Generative adversarial networks (GANs) have been widely employed in many applications. In this work we propose a new GAN framework for generating realistic and realistic images. The framework, dubbed ROGNN, has been implemented in two parts. First, a new generation of images called ROGNN-generated images is […]

  • Multi-view and Multi-view Margin Feature Learning using Stochastic Non-convex Regularized Regression and Graph Spaces

    Multi-view and Multi-view Margin Feature Learning using Stochastic Non-convex Regularized Regression and Graph Spaces – Recently, several methods have been proposed for the classification of image data that use Gaussian processes. The first method, which involves the distribution of both image pixels and Gaussian processes, aims to detect the presence of the same phenomenon in […]

  • Generation of Strong Adversarial Proxy Variates

    Generation of Strong Adversarial Proxy Variates – Recent literature on the problem of learning with a probabilistic model of a data has focussed on nonparametric models which have the ability to extract informative oracle-like information from observed data. In this paper we first show that non-parametric models, such as the recently constructed one by Guigianco […]

  • FastNet: A New Platform for Creating and Exploring Large-Scale Internet Databases from Images

    FastNet: A New Platform for Creating and Exploring Large-Scale Internet Databases from Images – The development of deep neural networks have enabled powerful machine learning tools and deep learning technologies to provide a fast and accurate understanding of complex images. Since deep neural networks are extremely accurate at a large number of iterations, they have […]

  • Theory of Action Orientation and Global Constraints in Video Classification: An Unsupervised Approach

    Theory of Action Orientation and Global Constraints in Video Classification: An Unsupervised Approach – We present an active learning model for video classification by optimizing a hierarchical optimization procedure. It is formulated as a two-level optimization problem with two steps: (i) a linear combination of the optimal distribution of all data points; and (ii) an […]

  • Show and Tell!

    Show and Tell! – We present and evaluate a new algorithm for learning a function from a set of noisy image patches. The key idea behind the algorithm is to reduce the training error and the training set to a minimal set of noisy image patches. We demonstrate that the algorithm significantly improves the performance […]
