    Gene-induced Multimodal Pre-training for Image-omic Classification

    Full text link
    Histology analysis of the tumor micro-environment integrated with genomic assays is the gold standard for most cancers in modern medicine. This paper proposes a Gene-induced Multimodal Pre-training (GiMP) framework, which jointly incorporates genomics and Whole Slide Images (WSIs) for classification tasks. Our work aims at dealing with the main challenges of multi-modality image-omic classification w.r.t. (1) the patient-level feature extraction difficulties from gigapixel WSIs and tens of thousands of genes, and (2) effective fusion considering high-order relevance modeling. Concretely, we first propose a group multi-head self-attention gene encoder to capture global structured features in gene expression cohorts. We design a masked patch modeling paradigm (MPM) to capture the latent pathological characteristics of different tissues. The mask strategy is randomly masking a fixed-length contiguous subsequence of patch embeddings of a WSI. Finally, we combine the classification tokens of paired modalities and propose a triplet learning module to learn high-order relevance and discriminative patient-level information.After pre-training, a simple fine-tuning can be adopted to obtain the classification results. Experimental results on the TCGA dataset show the superiority of our network architectures and our pre-training framework, achieving 99.47% in accuracy for image-omic classification.

    CopyRNeRF: Protecting the CopyRight of Neural Radiance Fields

    Full text link
    Neural Radiance Fields (NeRF) have the potential to be a major representation of media. Since training a NeRF has never been an easy task, the protection of its model copyright should be a priority. In this paper, by analyzing the pros and cons of possible copyright protection solutions, we propose to protect the copyright of NeRF models by replacing the original color representation in NeRF with a watermarked color representation. Then, a distortion-resistant rendering scheme is designed to guarantee robust message extraction in 2D renderings of NeRF. Our proposed method can directly protect the copyright of NeRF models while maintaining high rendering quality and bit accuracy when compared among optional solutions.Comment: 11 pages, 6 figures, accepted by iccv 2023 non-camera-ready versio

    Enhancing Low-Light Images Using Infrared-Encoded Images

    Full text link
    Low-light image enhancement task is essential yet challenging as it is ill-posed intrinsically. Previous arts mainly focus on the low-light images captured in the visible spectrum using pixel-wise loss, which limits the capacity of recovering the brightness, contrast, and texture details due to the small number of income photons. In this work, we propose a novel approach to increase the visibility of images captured under low-light environments by removing the in-camera infrared (IR) cut-off filter, which allows for the capture of more photons and results in improved signal-to-noise ratio due to the inclusion of information from the IR spectrum. To verify the proposed strategy, we collect a paired dataset of low-light images captured without the IR cut-off filter, with corresponding long-exposure reference images with an external filter. The experimental results on the proposed dataset demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method, showing better performance quantitatively and qualitatively. The dataset and code are publicly available at https://wyf0912.github.io/ELIEI/Comment: The first two authors contribute equally. The work is accepted by ICIP 202

    Removing Image Artifacts From Scratched Lens Protectors

    Full text link
    A protector is placed in front of the camera lens for mobile devices to avoid damage, while the protector itself can be easily scratched accidentally, especially for plastic ones. The artifacts appear in a wide variety of patterns, making it difficult to see through them clearly. Removing image artifacts from the scratched lens protector is inherently challenging due to the occasional flare artifacts and the co-occurring interference within mixed artifacts. Though different methods have been proposed for some specific distortions, they seldom consider such inherent challenges. In our work, we consider the inherent challenges in a unified framework with two cooperative modules, which facilitate the performance boost of each other. We also collect a new dataset from the real world to facilitate training and evaluation purposes. The experimental results demonstrate that our method outperforms the baselines qualitatively and quantitatively. The code and datasets will be released after acceptance.Comment: Accepted by ISCAS 202

    Specialized Re-Ranking: A Novel Retrieval-Verification Framework for Cloth Changing Person Re-Identification

    Full text link
    Cloth changing person re-identification(Re-ID) can work under more complicated scenarios with higher security than normal Re-ID and biometric techniques and is therefore extremely valuable in applications. Meanwhile, higher flexibility in appearance always leads to more similar-looking confusing images, which is the weakness of the widely used retrieval methods. In this work, we shed light on how to handle these similar images. Specifically, we propose a novel retrieval-verification framework. Given an image, the retrieval module can search for similar images quickly. Our proposed verification network will then compare the input image and the candidate images by contrasting those local details and give a similarity score. An innovative ranking strategy is also introduced to take a good balance between retrieval and verification results. Comprehensive experiments are conducted to show the effectiveness of our framework and its capability in improving the state-of-the-art methods remarkably on both synthetic and realistic datasets.Comment: Accepted by Pattern Recognitio
