With the advent of deep learning for computer vision tasks, the need for accurately labeled data in large volumes is vital for any application. The increasingly available large amounts of solar image data generated by the Solar Dynamic Observatory (SDO) mission make this domain particularly interesting for the development and testing of deep learning systems. The currently available labeled solar data is generated by the SDO mission’s Feature Finding Team’s (FFT) specialized detection modules… Expand

Learning to Track at 100 FPS with Deep Regression Networks
This work proposes a method for offline training of neural networks that can track novel objects at test-time at 100 fps, which is significantly faster than previous methods that use neural networks for tracking, which are typically very slow to run and not practical for real-time applications.

Computer Vision for the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO)
In Fall 2008 NASA selected a large international consortium to produce a comprehensive automated feature-recognition system for the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). The SDO data that we consider areExpand
Learning a Deep Compact Image Representation for Visual Tracking
Comparison with the state-of-the-art trackers on some challenging benchmark video sequences shows that the deep learning tracker is more accurate while maintaining low computational cost with real-time performance when the MATLAB implementation of the tracker is used with a modest graphics processing unit (GPU).

Transfer Learning Based Visual Tracking with Gaussian Processes Regression
This paper directly analyze this probability of target appearance as exponentially related to the confidence of a classifier output using Gaussian Processes Regression (GPR), and introduces a latent variable to assist the tracking decision. Expand
Faster R-CNN: Towards Real-Time Object Detection with Region Proposal Networks
This work introduces a Region Proposal Network (RPN) that shares full-image convolutional features with the detection network, thus enabling nearly cost-free region proposals and further merge RPN and Fast R-CNN into a single network by sharing their convolutionAL features. Expand
Deep Residual Learning for Image Recognition
This work presents a residual learning framework to ease the training of networks that are substantially deeper than those used previously, and provides comprehensive empirical evidence showing that these residual networks are easier to optimize, and can gain accuracy from considerably increased depth.

Very Deep Convolutional Networks for Large-Scale Image Recognition
This work investigates the effect of the convolutional network depth on its accuracy in the large-scale image recognition setting using an architecture with very small convolution filters, which shows that a significant improvement on the prior-art configurations can be achieved by pushing the depth to 16-19 weight layers.
