9:30am to 10:30am
- Teaching and Visualization Lab at the James B. Hunt, Jr. Library
In this talk Dr. Healey, Goodnight Distinguished Professor in NC State's Department of Computer Science, will discuss the area of deep learning, with a specific focus on convolutional neural networks (CNNs), a class of deep neural network often used for image analysis. The talk will begin with a very brief overview of the deep learning area, followed by a more focused discussion of CNNs. Dr. Healey will then present two ongoing projects in his research laboratory: a method to visualize the internal structure and response of a CNN to specific inputs or classes of inputs, and a system that can generate content for faces that have significant areas "removed" by a grey mask. The face completion can not only generate a unique, photorealistic repair; it can also control properties of the result, for example, whether the individual is smiling of frowning, whether (given sufficient ambiguity in the original, masked image) the individual looks like a male or a female, and so on. The talk will conclude with examples, both positive and negative, of the face completion system.
