- We would like to take the honour to introduce the research activities of the learning and vision research group in the past years. Basically, the group is founded on machine learning, and then seeks for applications in computer vision and multimedia problems. For machine learning, we focus on two areas, deep learning and robust learning. For applications, we focus on object analytics, fashion search and recommendation, and human analytics. In the talk, we shall share our experience in theories, deep learning platform, and concrete applications with demos.
