    ChatFace: Chat-Guided Real Face Editing via Diffusion Latent Space Manipulation

    Full text link
    Editing real facial images is a crucial task in computer vision with significant demand in various real-world applications. While GAN-based methods have showed potential in manipulating images especially when combined with CLIP, these methods are limited in their ability to reconstruct real images due to challenging GAN inversion capability. Despite the successful image reconstruction achieved by diffusion-based methods, there are still challenges in effectively manipulating fine-gained facial attributes with textual instructions.To address these issues and facilitate convenient manipulation of real facial images, we propose a novel approach that conduct text-driven image editing in the semantic latent space of diffusion model. By aligning the temporal feature of the diffusion model with the semantic condition at generative process, we introduce a stable manipulation strategy, which perform precise zero-shot manipulation effectively. Furthermore, we develop an interactive system named ChatFace, which combines the zero-shot reasoning ability of large language models to perform efficient manipulations in diffusion semantic latent space. This system enables users to perform complex multi-attribute manipulations through dialogue, opening up new possibilities for interactive image editing. Extensive experiments confirmed that our approach outperforms previous methods and enables precise editing of real facial images, making it a promising candidate for real-world applications.

    Video-Bench: A Comprehensive Benchmark and Toolkit for Evaluating Video-based Large Language Models

    Full text link
    Video-based large language models (Video-LLMs) have been recently introduced, targeting both fundamental improvements in perception and comprehension, and a diverse range of user inquiries. In pursuit of the ultimate goal of achieving artificial general intelligence, a truly intelligent Video-LLM model should not only see and understand the surroundings, but also possess human-level commonsense, and make well-informed decisions for the users. To guide the development of such a model, the establishment of a robust and comprehensive evaluation system becomes crucial. To this end, this paper proposes \textit{Video-Bench}, a new comprehensive benchmark along with a toolkit specifically designed for evaluating Video-LLMs. The benchmark comprises 10 meticulously crafted tasks, evaluating the capabilities of Video-LLMs across three distinct levels: Video-exclusive Understanding, Prior Knowledge-based Question-Answering, and Comprehension and Decision-making. In addition, we introduce an automatic toolkit tailored to process model outputs for various tasks, facilitating the calculation of metrics and generating convenient final scores. We evaluate 8 representative Video-LLMs using \textit{Video-Bench}. The findings reveal that current Video-LLMs still fall considerably short of achieving human-like comprehension and analysis of real-world videos, offering valuable insights for future research directions.

    MADAv2: Advanced Multi-Anchor Based Active Domain Adaptation Segmentation

    Full text link
    Unsupervised domain adaption has been widely adopted in tasks with scarce annotated data. Unfortunately, mapping the target-domain distribution to the source-domain unconditionally may distort the essential structural information of the target-domain data, leading to inferior performance. To address this issue, we firstly propose to introduce active sample selection to assist domain adaptation regarding the semantic segmentation task. By innovatively adopting multiple anchors instead of a single centroid, both source and target domains can be better characterized as multimodal distributions, in which way more complementary and informative samples are selected from the target domain. With only a little workload to manually annotate these active samples, the distortion of the target-domain distribution can be effectively alleviated, achieving a large performance gain. In addition, a powerful semi-supervised domain adaptation strategy is proposed to alleviate the long-tail distribution problem and further improve the segmentation performance. Extensive experiments are conducted on public datasets, and the results demonstrate that the proposed approach outperforms state-of-the-art methods by large margins and achieves similar performance to the fully-supervised upperbound, i.e., 71.4% mIoU on GTA5 and 71.8% mIoU on SYNTHIA. The effectiveness of each component is also verified by thorough ablation studies.Comment: Accepted by TPAMI-IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence. arXiv admin note: substantial text overlap with arXiv:2108.0801
