We evaluate whether features extracted from the activation of a deep convolutional network trained in a fully supervised fashion on a large, fixed set of object recognition tasks can be re-purposed to novel generic tasks. Our generic tasks may differ significantly from the originally trained tasks and there may be insufficient labeled or unlabeled data to(More)
A major challenge in scaling object detection is the difficulty of obtaining labeled images for large numbers of categories. Recently, deep convolutional neural networks (CNN) have emerged as clear winners on object classification benchmarks , in part due to training with 1.2M+ labeled classification images. Unfortunately , only a small fraction of those(More)
Recent reports suggest that a generic supervised deep CNN model trained on a large-scale dataset reduces, but does not remove, dataset bias on a standard benchmark. Fine-tuning deep models in a new domain can require a significant amount of data, which for many applications is simply not available. We propose a new CNN architecture which introduces an(More)
Recent reports suggest that a generic supervised deep CNN model trained on a large-scale dataset reduces, but does not remove, dataset bias. Fine-tuning deep models in a new domain can require a significant amount of labeled data, which for many applications is simply not available. We propose a new CNN architecture to exploit unlabeled and sparsely labeled(More)
We address the problem of adapting robotic perception from simulated to real-world environments. For many robotic control tasks, real training imagery is expensive to obtain, but a large amount of synthetic data is easy to generate through simulation. We propose a method that adapts representations using a small number of paired synthetic and real views of(More)
Dataset bias remains a significant barrier towards solving real world computer vision tasks. Though deep convolutional networks have proven to be a competitive approach for image classification, a question remains: have these models have solved the dataset bias problem? In general, training or fine-tuning a state-of-the-art deep model on a new domain(More)
We propose a system for user-aided visual localization of desert imagery without the use of any metadata such as GPS readings, camera focal length, or field-of-view. The system makes use only of publicly available digital elevation models (DEMs) to rapidly and accurately locate photographs in non-urban environments such as deserts. Our system generates(More)
— Recent work [1], [2] has shown promising results in enabling robotic manipulation of deformable objects through learning from demonstrations. Their method computes a registration from training scene to test scene, and then applies an extrapolation of this registration to the training scene gripper motion to obtain the gripper motion for the test scene.(More)
— We consider the problem of learning from demonstrations to manipulate deformable objects. Recent work [1], [2], [3] has shown promising results that enable robotic manipulation of deformable objects through learning from demonstrations. Their approach is able to generalize from a single demonstration to new test situations, and suggests a nearest neighbor(More)
—This paper presents Pinterest Related Pins, an item-to-item recommendation system that combines collaborative filtering with content-based ranking. We demonstrate that signals derived from user curation, the activity of users organizing content , are highly effective when used in conjunction with content-based ranking. This paper also demonstrates the(More)
