Keynote Title: 3D Face Recovery and its Applications in Biometrics

3D information is important in many computer vision tasks. This talk will firstly introduce the progress of 3D face recovery from a single image, including the traditional analysis-by-synthesis method and the deep learning based method. After that, it will describe how to generate fidelity face images with the help of 3D models, which can be used in many face analysis tasks, like face recognition, face anti-spoofing etc. Finally, it simply introduces the physical and digital face attack detection task and reports recent progress of fake face detection with 3D image decomposition, which provides new clues in this direction.

Keynote Title: Visual object detection in earth observation system: challenges and solutions

With the rapid development of remote sensing technologies, more and more remote sensing images with high spatial resolution are available. How to achieve the detection of objects of interest is one of central issues for earth observation systems. In this talk, by analyzing the characteristics of high-spatial-resolution remote sensing images (e.g., data massiveness, object diversity, and environmental complexity) and the applications, we first summarize several key challenges needed to be solved for visual object detection techniques, including the automatic labeling of large number of training samples, the extraction of rotation-invariant and high-level image features and so on. Then, focusing on the above-mentioned problems, we introduce a series of solutions by our research group.
