Object Detection using deep convolutional network

Submitted May 31, 2016

The talk aims to cover the advancements in object detection framework based on convolutional networks. The goal of object category detection is to identify and localize objects of a given type in an image. The main challenge associated with object detection in unconstrained images is to localize the object regardless of its location and scale. I will cover various state of the art methods employed in generic object detection starting from rcnn that employs a third party generic object proposals(selective search) to faster-rcnn which generates the proposals from the convolutional network itself with substantial reduction in running time. I will then cover the role of context for object detection in domains like fashion where region based methods fall short of predicting the correct category and methods to incorporate the context in existing object detection systems.



  1. Object detection framework with convolutional network
  2. Region based object detection algorithm (R-cnn)
  3. Methods to speed up the training and testing time
  4. Bypassing the generic object proposal phase(faster-rcnn)
  5. Context(surrounding of region) Importance for object detection in fashion domain
  6. Methods to incorporate context
