Reinforcement Learning: The Next Frontier
Deep Learning in recent years has touched many milestones – convolutional neural networks have surpassed human performance in tasks like object detection, image classification. Transformers are providing awesome results in natural language-based tasks. While these are outstanding achievements, these methods suffer from the fact that they... Read more
Facial Landmarks – a Solution in Deepfakes
The human face and body are key entities in the task of fake content generation. Particularly when dealing with the human face, apart from detecting the overall face in each image or video, a deepfake solution also needs to focus on the eyes, mouth, and other... Read more
Audio-Visual Speech Enhancement and Separation Based on Deep Learning
Imagine being at a cocktail party with your friends. Although you are surrounded by other people having their own conversations and a music band is playing in the background, you are still able to engage with your friends and understand what they are saying. The reason... Read more
Adversarial Image Explanation Through Alibi
Deep learning-based computer vision has plenty of real-life applications. In particular, Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) architectures are commonly used across multiple CV tasks as they have high accuracy. But their strength leads also to a weakness point, as a little perturbation to an input image/frame can... Read more
