We propose a deblurring method that incorporates gyroscope measurements into a convolutional neural network (CNN). With the help of such measurements, it can handle extremely strong and spatially-variant motion blur. At the same time, the image data is used to overcome the limitations of gyro-based blur estimation. To train our network, we also introduce a novel way of generating realistic training data using the gyroscope. The evaluation shows a clear improvement in visual quality over the state-of-the-art while achieving real-time performance. Furthermore, the method is shown to improve the performance of existing feature detectors and descriptors against the motion blur.
In today's digital age in the dawning era of big data analytics it is not the information but the linking of information through entities and actions which defines the discourse. Any textual data either available on the Internet off off-line (like newspaper data, Wikipedia dump, etc) is basically connect information which cannot be treated isolated for its wholesome semantics. There is a need for an automated retrieval process with proper information extraction to structure the data for relevant and fast text analytics. The first big challenge is the conversion of unstructured textual data to structured data. Unlike other databases, graph databases handle relationships and connections elegantly. Our project aims at developing a graph-based information extraction and retrieval system.
We propose a new method for event extraction (EE) task based on an imitation learning framework, specifically, inverse reinforcement learning (IRL) via generative adversarial network (GAN). The GAN estimates proper rewards according to the difference between the actions committed by the expert (or ground truth) and the agent among complicated states in the environment. EE task benefits from these dynamic rewards because instances and labels yield to various extents of difficulty and the gains are expected to be diverse -- e.g., an ambiguous but correctly detected trigger or argument should receive high gains -- while the traditional RL models usually neglect such differences and pay equal attention on all instances. Moreover, our experiments also demonstrate that the proposed framework outperforms state-of-the-art methods, without explicit feature engineering.
