Computer Vision Reading Group

This semester we will start a Computer Vision seminar. The overall purpose of this seminar is to bring together people with interests in Computer Vision theory and techniques and to examine some current research papers. This seminar is organized by the students and collaborators of the UVA Vision, Language and Learning (VISLANG) research group. Any student who has some exposure to Computer Vision and Machine Learning should be able to follow the group.

The seminar will focus on topics related to the main research projects in Computer Vision in our group. These include work at the intersection of language and vision, computer vision for images on the web, general works on deep learning and machine learning methods that can be potentially applied to vision and language problems,methods for learning about sense of place, visual recognition of objects in complex environments, buidling systems that can recognize objects and places efficiently. Other topics will depend on the interests of the participants and new members of the reading group.
