aLook at the Space Application Hackathon: ML applied to satellite imagery in agriculture

At the beginning of November, Me and my colleague Honza attended the Space Application Hackathon where our team managed to win the earth observation category. Specifically, we worked out two use cases – classification of agricultural land use and crop yield prediction. Here is our write up from the event.


Classification of soybeans and wheat. Upper image is our prediction. Bottom image is the reality

Highlights from IEEE International Conference on Image Processing 2018

“Imaging beyond imagination”

That is this year’s ICIP 2018 conference theme. I attended the world’s largest and most comprehensive technical conference focused on image and video processing and computer vision.

Here are my special picks:

Image Representation an Modeling

Reducing Anomaly Detection in Images to Detection in Noise

Smart approach to anomaly detection by removing self-similar content of the image – ready to use for detecting material defects, tumors and others!

Highlights from the European Conference on Computer Vision 2018

This year’s ECCV 2018 conference experienced an unprecedented growth of community and brought to light the most recent advances in computer vision. As expected, all the sessions were dominated by Deep Learning with Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs).

For those who couldn’t join, I picked up a few interesting topics that caught my attention. Here is the list:

Autonomous Driving

Self-localization on-the-fly

One of the main topics at ECCV 2018 was autonomous driving. Can you compete against LIDAR? Can you detect and reconstruct cars as 3D objects from video? Check some ECCV’s challenges!
