Title: Super-Resolution of Light Field Image Based on Attention Mechanism

Speech Abstract: Light FieldLFimaging technology can not only captures the spatial information of the scene, but also obtains the direction information of light. Therefore, it has incomparable advantages over traditional optical imaging. It has important application value in the fields of 3D scene reconstruction, video monitoring, virtual simulation and the other computer vision fields. However, one disadvantage of light field imaging is that the spatial resolution of sub aperture images is often low. Resolution enhancement technology needs to be used to improve the quality of the LF images in order to meet the needs of applications. To solve this problem, we use the attention mechanism to capture the complementary information among all of the sub aperture images, and use the Super-ResolutionSRmethod to enhance the spatial resolution of sub aperture images. Our contribution mainly includes two aspects:

1. How to mine the complementary information among all of the sub aperture images is the key to the super-resolution of LF images. Most current methods have low efficiency in aggregating the features of sub aperture images with different viewing angles. To solve this problem, we propose a mutual attention feature learning method for learning complementary information from different viewing angles.

2. At present, most methods adopt the manual design of sub aperture feature aggregation strategy, which can not deal with the super-resolution reconstruction of arbitrary scene images. To solve this problem, a hierarchical and multi-level attention sub aperture feature aggregation method is proposed by using the characteristics of long-distance dynamic modeling of Vision Transformer.

Title: Clustering: from shallow clustering to deep clustering

Speech Abstract: Clustering is an important topic in data mining and machine learning. In this report, we will discuss classical shallow clustering and deep clustering techniques. In shallow clustering, we will introduce our works in graph cut. In deep clustering, we will introduce our recent works in self-supervised clustering.
