The lack of automatic tools to identify giant panda makes it hard to keep track of and manage giant pandas in wildlife conservation missions. In this paper, we introduce a new Giant Panda Identification (GPID) task, which aims to identify each individual panda based on an image. Though related to the human re-identification and animal classification problem, GPID is extraordinarily challenging due to subtle visual differences between pandas and cluttered global information. In this paper, we… Expand


Fine-Grained Giant Panda Identification
The Feature-Fusion Convolutional Neural Network with Patch Detector (FFCNN-PD) algorithm is proposed, which exploits the discriminative local patches and builds a hierarchical representation generated by fusing both global and local features. Expand
Giant Panda Face Recognition Using Small Dataset
A panda face recognition algorithm, which includes alignment, large feature set extraction and matching is proposed and evaluated on a dataset consisting of 163 images, and the experimental results are encouraging. Expand
Mask-CNN: Localizing parts and selecting descriptors for fine-grained bird species categorization
It is proved that selecting useful deep descriptors contributes well to fine-grained image recognition, and a novel Mask-CNN model without the fully connected layers is proposed, which has a small feature dimensionality and efficient inference speed by comparing with other fine- grained approaches.

Feature Pyramid Networks for Object Detection
This paper exploits the inherent multi-scale, pyramidal hierarchy of deep convolutional networks to construct feature pyramids with marginal extra cost and achieves state-of-the-art single-model results on the COCO detection benchmark without bells and whistles. Expand
HyperNet: Towards Accurate Region Proposal Generation and Joint Object Detection
This paper presents a deep hierarchical network, namely HyperNet, for handling region proposal generation and object detection jointly, primarily based on an elaborately designed Hyper Feature which aggregates hierarchical feature maps first and then compresses them into a uniform space. Expand
Multiple Granularity Descriptors for Fine-Grained Categorization
This work leverages the fact that a subordinate-level object already has other labels in its ontology tree to train a series of CNN-based classifiers, each specialized at one grain level, which outperforms state-of-the-art algorithms, including those requiring strong labels. Expand
Scalable Person Re-identification: A Benchmark
A minor contribution, inspired by recent advances in large-scale image search, an unsupervised Bag-of-Words descriptor is proposed that yields competitive accuracy on VIPeR, CUHK03, and Market-1501 datasets, and is scalable on the large- scale 500k dataset. Expand
AutoBD: Automated Bi-Level Description for Scalable Fine-Grained Visual Categorization
A robust and discriminative visual description named Automated Bi-level Description (AutoBD), which only requires the image-level labels of training images and does not need any annotations for testing images, which makes AutoBD suitable for large-scale visual categorization. Expand
Rich Feature Hierarchies for Accurate Object Detection and Semantic Segmentation
This paper proposes a simple and scalable detection algorithm that improves mean average precision (mAP) by more than 30% relative to the previous best result on VOC 2012 -- achieving a mAP of 53.3%. Expand
MS-Celeb-1M: A Dataset and Benchmark for Large-Scale Face Recognition
A benchmark task to recognize one million celebrities from their face images, by using all the possibly collected face images of this individual on the web as training data, which could lead to one of the largest classification problems in computer vision. Expand
