Előadás címe: Deep Learning for Visual Data Compression
Abstract: Deep learning has proven remarkably successful at modeling the statistics of dense, high-dimensional data, and dethroned traditional signal processing-based approaches as the state-of-the-art in in several domains from speech processing to object segmentation. It is likely that deep learning will eventually revolutionize video and image compression as well. Before this is possible, a number of key challenges remain: Convolutional neural networks are computationally demanding; Deep learning does not work well with the discrete, non-differentiable nature of data compression; We lack good inductive biases and priors for dealing with temporal aspects of video; Finally, we need more robust tools to measure, predict and directly optimize for subjective perceptual quality. In this talk I provide an overview of the work our team has done over the past couple years to address each of these challenges.
