On June 22, the IEEE CVPR 2018 ended in Salt Lake City, USA. IEEE CVPR is the abbreviation of IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition. The conference is the top conference held by IEEE in the field of computer vision and pattern recognition. CVPR is an IEEE annual academic conference. The main content of the conference is computer vision and pattern recognition technology. It is the world's top computer vision conference (one of the top three conferences, and the other two are ICCV and ECCV). WAD (Workshop on Autonomous Driving) is the only international top-level evaluation contest focusing on autopilot vision. It is known for its large scale and high difficulty.
At this year's CVPR conference, the visual research team from Sogou participated in the WAD Autopilot Recognition Challenge, which won the championship in the Task-2 "Road Target Detection" project, representing China to the whole The world shows strong technical strength.
The road target detection technology is one of the most important basic research directions in autopilot vision, and it is also the main computer vision technology researched by domestic and foreign technology companies. It is understood that Sogou’s target detection technology demonstrated at the CVPR 2018 conference uses CoupleNet on a faster-rcnn basis and at the same time incorporates rainbow concatenation, which not only improves the accuracy of target detection, but also makes it difficult to detect small objects. It has also been well resolved.
Sogou’s R&D and breakthrough in target detection technology has significant and far-reaching impact on the entire industry, as target detection technology has a very wide range of application scenarios. It can be applied to smart driving and simulate the human eye's perception of the environment through algorithms. It can also be applied to the face recognition technology and intelligent security field to quickly detect and analyze specified image information and save manpower and material resources. In addition, it can be used in smart retail. In the field, through the introduction of target detection technology, it is possible to implement functions such as theft prevention and automatic checkout.
Target detection technology is artificial intelligence. "Eye", determines the action and judgment of artificial intelligence. Speech recognition and machine interpretation technology are artificial intelligence "ears" so that artificial intelligence can understand human language better. This is what Sogou has always had. It seems that after grasping the “ear” and “eyes” of artificial intelligence, the domestic technology power represented by Sogou is getting closer and closer to the door of artificial intelligence era.
