The CVPR annual conference showcases the most important advances in computer vision, pattern recognition, machine learning and artificial intelligence. Catch up on the top 5 announcements that came out of CVPR 2018.
CVPR 2018 Highlights
FUELING THE NEXT WAVE
OF AI DISCOVERY
THE CVPR ANNUAL CONFERENCE SHOWCASES THE
MOST IMPORTANCE ADVANCES IN COMPUTER VISION,
PATTERN RECOGNITION, MACHINE LEARNING AND
THE CONFERENCE HAS GROWN SIGNIFICANTLY
WITH 6,000 ATTENDEES THIS YEAR, INCLUDING
THE WORLD’S LEADING RESEARCHERS.
NEW TOOLS TO REV THE ENGINE OF MODERN AI
At CVPR 2018, NVIDIA unveiled a series of tools
and deep learning research, including NVIDIA
Apex, an open-source extension that helps
developers accelerate their AI research by tapping
the multi-precision capabilities of NVIDIA’s Volta
Tensor Core GPUs.
NVIDIA also launched DALI – an open-source library
designed as a plug-in that works with all major
frameworks. It allows users to define configurable
data processing graphs to accelerate image decode
and augmentation steps typical in AI training to
RESEARCH AT THE CUTTING EDGE
CVPR is where researchers present cutting-edge
computer vision research. NVIDIA Research
presented 14 papers that answer questions at the
intersection of art, science and practical
Among them was a newly developed deep learning
system that converts standard videos into slow-
motion. This can turn a video from 30 frames per
second(fps) to 240 fps.
“NVIDIA wants to help you turn any old video shot on your
phone into a blur-free, slow-motion masterpiece, and it's
using artificial intelligence to do it.”
ELITE AI RESEARCHERS GET A POWERFUL BOOST
NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang awarded 20 lucky
guests a specially designed 32GB CEO edition of
the TITAN V at a private CVPR reception.
“There's all kinds of research being done here… as
someone who benefits from your work, as a person who
is going to enjoy the incredible research you guys do --
solving some of the world's grand challenges -- and to
be able to witness artificial intelligence happen in my
lifetime, I want to thank all of you guys for that. You
guys bring me so much joy."
CLOSING PERSPECTIVES ON CVPR 2018
NVIDIA’s research leaders Bryan Catanzaro and
Jan Kautz discuss noteworthy research at CVPR
2018 and how the field of deep learning
continues to grow.
“We are in an era where lots of data is accessible to
lots of researchers to make progress.”
