An entrepreneurial path from academic innovation to commercial products

This presentation will include a history of taking a process from an academic laboratory curiosity to the cusp of commercial processing – entirely during major global economic downturns. The role of intellectual property, government funding, university technology transfer, industrial support, and the perseverance and sacrifices of the scientists and engineers involved to succeed will all be discussed.

Haoyang Zhang: Learning to Generate and Refine Object Proposals

Object proposal generation has become a vital step in many vision tasks, like object detection and object instance segmentation. While great progress has been made in this area, there still are several serious limitations in the prior methods. First, most object proposal approaches focus on 2D images and are unable to make use of multi-modal cues. Second, generating accurate object segment proposals is still an extremely challenging task.

CECS expansion presentation by Prof Elanor Huntington

ANU Professor Elanor Huntington, Dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS), is leading a project to reimagine a new type of engineering and computing, one that is custom built and fit for the middle of the 21st century.

This project aims to get us thinking about what our world will be like in 2050, when we are completely embedded in both a digital and physical environment, and to encourage us to take charge and shape a new intellectual agenda.

And this needs to happen now!

Wei Zhou: 2D+3D Indoor Scene Understanding from a Single Monocular Image

Indoor scene understanding is a broad field, which gains great interests in recent years.  Existing methods in this field typically make use of depth sensors,  such as Kinect and LiDAR,  which are, however, not always available, or cheap to acquire.  In our works, we aim to exploit indoor scene understanding in a general case, where only a monocular color image of the scene is available.  To the end,  we developed a model that reasons local detailed depth by leveraging scene geometrical structures on multiple scales.  With depth estimations, we were able to generate 3D object box proposals
