REST: Robust and Efficient Neural Networks for Sleep Monitoring in the Wild

, , , ,  - 2020

In recent years, significant attention has been devoted towards integrating deep learning technologies in the healthcare domain. However, to safely and practically deploy deep learning models for home health monitoring, two significant challenges must be addressed: the models should be (1) robust against noise; and (2) compact and energy-efficien...


SparseIDS: Learning Packet Sampling with Reinforcement Learning

, , ,  - 2020

Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) have been shown to be valuable for constructing Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs) for network data. They allow determining if a flow is malicious or not already before it is over, making it possible to take action immediately. However, considering the large number of packets that have to be inspected, the questio...


Vehicle Driving Assistant

, , ,  - 2020

Autonomous vehicles has been a common term in our day to day life with car manufacturers like Tesla shipping cars that are SAE Level 3. While these vehicles include a slew of features such as parking assistance and cruise control,they have mostly been tailored to foreign roads. Potholes, and the abundance of them, is something that is unique to o...


Multi-Channel Attention Selection GANs for Guided Image-to-Image Translation

, , , , ,  - 2020

We propose a novel model named Multi-Channel Attention Selection Generative Adversarial Network (SelectionGAN) for guided image-to-image translation, where we translate an input image into another while respecting an external semantic guidance. The proposed SelectionGAN explicitly utilizes the semantic guidance information and consists of two sta...


On Identifying Hashtags in Disaster Twitter Data

, ,  - 2020

Tweet hashtags have the potential to improve the search for information during disaster events. However, there is a large number of disaster-related tweets that do not have any user-provided hashtags. Moreover, only a small number of tweets that contain actionable hashtags are useful for disaster response. To facilitate progress on automatic iden...


Deep Snake for Real-Time Instance Segmentation

, , , ,  - 2020

This paper introduces a novel contour-based approach named deep snake for real-time instance segmentation. Unlike some recent methods that directly regress the coordinates of the object boundary points from an image, deep snake uses a neural network to iteratively deform an initial contour to the object boundary, which implements the classic idea...


Margin Maximization as Lossless Maximal Compression

, ,  - 2020

The ultimate goal of a supervised learning algorithm is to produce models constructed on the training data that can generalize well to new examples. In classification, functional margin maximization -- correctly classifying as many training examples as possible with maximal confidence --has been known to construct models with good generalization ...


GEDDnet: A Network for Gaze Estimation with Dilation and Decomposition

,  - 2020

Appearance-based gaze estimation from RGB images provides relatively unconstrained gaze tracking from commonly available hardware. The accuracy of subject-independent models is limited partly by small intra-subject and large inter-subject variations in appearance, and partly by a latent subject-dependent bias. To improve estimation accuracy, we p...


Dynamic Parameter Allocation in Parameter Servers

, , ,  - 2020

To keep up with increasing dataset sizes and model complexity, distributed training has become a necessity for large machine learning tasks. Parameter servers ease the implementation of distributed parameter management---a key concern in distributed training---, but can induce severe communication overhead. To reduce communication overhead, distr...


FGN: Fusion Glyph Network for Chinese Named Entity Recognition

, , ,  - 2020

Chinese NER is a challenging task. As pictographs, Chinese characters contain latent glyph information, which is often overlooked. We propose the FGN, Fusion Glyph Network for Chinese NER. This method may offer glyph information for fusion representation learning with BERT. The major innovations of FGN include: (1) a novel CNN structure called CG...
