ECCV invited tutorial: Florent Perronnin : "Output embedding for large-scale visual recognition"
Abstract: The focus of the computer vision community has long been on input embedding: how to transform an image or a video into a suitable descriptor? During this tutorial, we will consider the output embedding problem: how to embed classes in a Euclidean space? We will see that output embedding is a must for large-scale visual recognition as it enables parameter sharing: this yields classifiers which are more accurate when training data is scarce (including zero-shot recognition) and which are faster to train and evaluate. We will provide a taxonomy of output embeddings and focus on embeddings based on a priori information (eg class hierarchies, attributes or textual descriptions). We will also explain how to measure the compatibility between input and output embeddings, starting from simple least-square regression and going all the way to deep learning. Finally, we will show recent successful applications of output embedding to web-scale visual classification.
