We present an improvement in the ability to meaningfully track features in high speed videos of Caribbean steelpan drums illuminated by Electronic Speckle Pattern Interferometry (ESPI). This is achieved through the use of up-to-date computer vision libraries for object detection and image segmentation as well as a significant effort toward cleaning the dataset previously used to train systems for this application. Besides improvements on previous metric scores by 10% or more, noteworthy in this…

ConvNets for Counting: Object Detection of Transient Phenomena in Steelpan Drums
We train an object detector built from convolutional neural networks to count interference fringes in elliptical antinode regions in frames of high-speed video recordings of transient oscillations in
High speed electronic speckle pattern interferometry as a method for studying the strike on a steelpan.
Electronic speckle pattern interferometry (ESPI) is a useful method for characterizing the operating deflection shapes and modes of vibration of musical instruments. Using ESPI in conjunction with a
YOLO9000: Better, Faster, Stronger
TLDR
YOLO9000, a state-of-the-art, real-time object detection system that can detect over 9000 object categories, is introduced and a method to jointly train on object detection and classification is proposed, both novel and drawn from prior work.
Focal Loss for Dense Object Detection
TLDR
This paper proposes to address the extreme foreground-background class imbalance encountered during training of dense detectors by reshaping the standard cross entropy loss such that it down-weights the loss assigned to well-classified examples, and develops a novel Focal Loss, which focuses training on a sparse set of hard examples and prevents the vast number of easy negatives from overwhelming the detector during training.

Pay Attention to Features, Transfer Learn Faster CNNs
TLDR
Attentive feature distillation and selection (AFDS) is proposed that not only adjusts the strength of regularization introduced by transfer learning but also dynamically determines which are the important features to transfer.
A simple design for an electronic speckle pattern interferometer
An electronic speckle pattern interferometer suitable for use in an undergraduate laboratory is described. This interferometer can be built for a small fraction of the cost of a commercial version
