CVPR is growing exponentially. This year in the beautiful Honolulu there are approx. 5K attendees. First, I will present our paper on “Localization of JPEG double compression through multi-domain convolutional neural networks” (Amerini, Uricchio, Ballan, Caldelli) at the CVPR’17 Workshop on Media Forensics. Then, I will give a keynote talk on “Exploiting noisy web data for large-scale visual recognition” at the CVPR’17 Workshop on Visual Understanding by Learning from Web Data [slides available online].

In the last months I gave several times this talk about my recent work on knowledge transfer for large-scale visual recognition problems (e.g. Aquifi Inc – Palo Alto, Google ResearchUC Santa Cruz, MICCU. of Parma, U. of Catania, U. of Padova, “Ca’ Foscari” U. Venice). The key idea of this work is to transfer prior contextual knowledge to novel scenes where it is hard to collect large-scale training data [slides available online].

Vision and social media has recently become a very active inter-disciplinary research area, involving computer vision, multimedia, machine learning, and data mining. This workshop aims to bring together researchers in the related fields to promote new research directions for problems involving vision and social media, such as large-scale visual content analysis, search and mining.

visionlabWatch the TED 2015 talk by my postdoc advisor Prof. Fei-Fei Li about the recent advances in computer vision, from the detection and classification of objects in images to algorithms that are able to construct natural descriptions of those images. It is an exciting overview of the current state of the art in computer vision, in which she shares her thoughts on its potential use and impact. http://goo.gl/8O5Fch

Marie Curie ActionsI have been awarded with a Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowship (IOF) granted by the European Commission. The Marie Curie IOF is a prestigious and highly competitive fellowship for experienced European scientists to gain new skills and expertise while conducting high-level research in a country outside Europe.

I have been awarded a grant of 272K Euro for the 3-years project “EAGLE: Exploiting semAntic and social knowledGe for visuaL rEcognition”. I will spend the first two years (outgoing phase) at Stanford University.
