Drop to Adapt: Learning Discriminative Features for Unsupervised Domain Adaptation

Oct 12, 2019
Seungmin Lee, Dongwan Kim, Namil Kim, Seong-Gyun Jeong

Recent works on domain adaptation exploit adversarial training to obtain domain-invariant feature representations from the joint learning of feature extractor and domain discriminator networks. However, domain adversarial methods render suboptimal performances since they attempt to match the distributions among the domains without considering the task at hand. We propose Drop to Adapt (DTA), which leverages adversarial dropout to learn strongly discriminative features by enforcing the cluster assumption. Accordingly, we design objective functions to support robust domain adaptation. We demonstrate efficacy of the proposed method on various experiments and achieve consistent improvements in both image classification and semantic segmentation tasks.

Pixel-Level Domain Transfer

Nov 28, 2016
Donggeun Yoo, Namil Kim, Sunggyun Park, Anthony S. Paek, In So Kweon

We present an image-conditional image generation model. The model transfers an input domain to a target domain in semantic level, and generates the target image in pixel level. To generate realistic target images, we employ the real/fake-discriminator as in Generative Adversarial Nets, but also introduce a novel domain-discriminator to make the generated image relevant to the input image. We verify our model through a challenging task of generating a piece of clothing from an input image of a dressed person. We present a high quality clothing dataset containing the two domains, and succeed in demonstrating decent results.

Fine-scale Surface Normal Estimation using a Single NIR Image

Mar 24, 2016
Youngjin Yoon, Gyeongmin Choe, Namil Kim, Joon-Young Lee, In So Kweon

We present surface normal estimation using a single near infrared (NIR) image. We are focusing on fine-scale surface geometry captured with an uncalibrated light source. To tackle this ill-posed problem, we adopt a generative adversarial network which is effective in recovering a sharp output, which is also essential for fine-scale surface normal estimation. We incorporate angular error and integrability constraint into the objective function of the network to make estimated normals physically meaningful. We train and validate our network on a recent NIR dataset, and also evaluate the generality of our trained model by using new external datasets which are captured with a different camera under different environment.

VPGNet: Vanishing Point Guided Network for Lane and Road Marking Detection and Recognition

Oct 17, 2017

In this paper, we propose a unified end-to-end trainable multi-task network that jointly handles lane and road marking detection and recognition that is guided by a vanishing point under adverse weather conditions. We tackle rainy and low illumination conditions, which have not been extensively studied until now due to clear challenges. For example, images taken under rainy days are subject to low illumination, while wet roads cause light reflection and distort the appearance of lane and road markings. At night, color distortion occurs under limited illumination. As a result, no benchmark dataset exists and only a few developed algorithms work under poor weather conditions. To address this shortcoming, we build up a lane and road marking benchmark which consists of about 20,000 images with 17 lane and road marking classes under four different scenarios: no rain, rain, heavy rain, and night. We train and evaluate several versions of the proposed multi-task network and validate the importance of each task. The resulting approach, VPGNet, can detect and classify lanes and road markings, and predict a vanishing point with a single forward pass. Experimental results show that our approach achieves high accuracy and robustness under various conditions in real-time (20 fps). The benchmark and the VPGNet model will be publicly available.
