In this paper, we propose multi-stage and deformable deep convolutional neural networks for object detection. This new deep learning object detection diagram has innovations in multiple aspects. In the proposed new deep architecture, a new deformation constrained pooling (def-pooling) layer models the deformation of object parts with geometric constraint(More)
In this paper, we propose deformable deep convolutional neural networks for generic object detection. This new deep learning object detection diagram has innovations in multiple aspects. In the proposed new deep architecture, a new deformation constrained pooling (def-pooling) layer models the deformation of object parts with geometric constraint and(More)
— Recent technology trends have indicated that, although device sizes will continue to scale as they have in the past, supply voltage scaling has ended. As a result, future chips can no longer rely on simply increasing the operational core count to improve performance without surpassing a reasonable power budget. Alternatively, allocating die area towards(More)
Image re-ranking, as an effective way to improve the results of web-based image search, has been adopted by current commercial search engines such as Bing and Google. Given a query keyword, a pool of images are first retrieved based on textual information. By asking the user to select a query image from the pool, the remaining images are re-ranked based on(More)
Gaze signals are frequently used by the sighted in social interactions as visual cues. However, these signals and cues are hardly accessible for people with visual disability. A conceptual design of E-Gaze glasses is proposed, assistive to create gaze communication between blind and sighted people in face-to-face conversations. We interviewed 20 totally(More)
The Li-ion battery is becoming the optimal choice for the Electric Vehicle's (EV) power supply. In order to protect the Li-ion battery from charging damage and to prolong the battery's life, a special control strategy based on the dynamic balanced point along with a non-dissipative equalizer is presented. The main focus of the proposed control strategy is(More)
Web image re-ranking aims to automatically refine the initial text-based image search results by employing visual information. A strong line of work in image re-ranking relies on building image graphs that requires computing distances between image pairs. In this paper, we present Anchor Concept Graph Distance (ACG Distance), a novel distance measure for(More)
—Land surface microwave emission is mainly a function of soil moisture and surface roughness. However, the relationship between vertical and horizontal polarization land surface emissivities is not fully understood. This study attempts to develop a parameterized relationship to relate the emissivities at different polarizations for bare surfaces. A(More)
Gaze and eye contact are frequently in social occasions used among sighted people. Gaze is considered as a predictor of attention and engagement between interlocutors in conversations. However, gaze signals from the sighted are not accessible for the blind person in face-to-face communication. In this paper, we present functional work-in-progress prototype,(More)
