    Constrained Deep Transfer Feature Learning and its Applications

    Full text link
    Feature learning with deep models has achieved impressive results for both data representation and classification for various vision tasks. Deep feature learning, however, typically requires a large amount of training data, which may not be feasible for some application domains. Transfer learning can be one of the approaches to alleviate this problem by transferring data from data-rich source domain to data-scarce target domain. Existing transfer learning methods typically perform one-shot transfer learning and often ignore the specific properties that the transferred data must satisfy. To address these issues, we introduce a constrained deep transfer feature learning method to perform simultaneous transfer learning and feature learning by performing transfer learning in a progressively improving feature space iteratively in order to better narrow the gap between the target domain and the source domain for effective transfer of the data from the source domain to target domain. Furthermore, we propose to exploit the target domain knowledge and incorporate such prior knowledge as a constraint during transfer learning to ensure that the transferred data satisfies certain properties of the target domain. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed constrained deep transfer feature learning method, we apply it to thermal feature learning for eye detection by transferring from the visible domain. We also applied the proposed method for cross-view facial expression recognition as a second application. The experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method for both applications.Comment: International Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, 201

    Generation of Multi-Color Attosecond X-Ray Radiation Through Modulation Compression

    Full text link
    In this paper, we propose a scheme to generate tunable multi-color attosecond coherent X-ray radiation for future light source applications. This scheme uses an energy chirped electron beam, a laser modulators, a laser chirper and two bunch compressors to generate a multi-spike prebunched kilo-Ampere current electron beam from a few tens Ampere electron beam out of a linac. Such an electron beam transports through a series of undulator radiators and bunch compressors to generate multi-color coherent X-ray radiation. As an illustration, we present an example to generate two attosecond pulses with 2.22.2 nm and 33 nm coherent X-ray radiation wavelength and more than 200200 MW peak power using a 3030 Ampere 200200 nm laser seeded electron beam

    Constrained Joint Cascade Regression Framework for Simultaneous Facial Action Unit Recognition and Facial Landmark Detection

    Full text link
    Cascade regression framework has been shown to be effective for facial landmark detection. It starts from an initial face shape and gradually predicts the face shape update from the local appearance features to generate the facial landmark locations in the next iteration until convergence. In this paper, we improve upon the cascade regression framework and propose the Constrained Joint Cascade Regression Framework (CJCRF) for simultaneous facial action unit recognition and facial landmark detection, which are two related face analysis tasks, but are seldomly exploited together. In particular, we first learn the relationships among facial action units and face shapes as a constraint. Then, in the proposed constrained joint cascade regression framework, with the help from the constraint, we iteratively update the facial landmark locations and the action unit activation probabilities until convergence. Experimental results demonstrate that the intertwined relationships of facial action units and face shapes boost the performances of both facial action unit recognition and facial landmark detection. The experimental results also demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method comparing to the state-of-the-art works.Comment: International Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, 201

    One loop partition function in AdS_3/CFT_2

    Full text link
    The 1-loop partition function of the handle-body solutions in the AdS3_3 gravity have been derived some years ago using the heat-kernel and the method of images. In the semiclassical limit, such partition function should correspond to the order O(c0)O (c^0) part in the partition function of dual conformal field theory on the boundary Riemann surface. The higher genus partition function could be computed by the multi-point functions in the Riemann sphere via sewing prescription. In the large central charge limit, to the leading order of cc, the multi-point function is further simplified to be a summation over the product of two-point functions, which may form links. Each link is in one-to-one correspondence with the conjugacy class of the Schottky group of the Riemann surface. Moreover, the value of a link is determined by the eigenvalue of the element in the conjugate class. This allows us to reproduce exactly the gravitational 1-loop partition function. The proof can be generalized to the higher spin gravity and its dual CFT.Comment: 30 pages, 8 figures; typos corrected, more clarifications, references and acknowledgements adde

    R\'enyi Entropy of Free Compact Boson on Torus

    Full text link
    In this paper, we reconsider the single interval R\'enyi entropy of a free compact scalar on a torus. In this case, the contribution to the entropy could be decomposed into classical part and quantum part. The classical part includes the contribution from all the saddle points, while the quantum part is universal. After considering a different monodromy condition from the one in the literature, we re-evaluate the classical part of the R\'enyi entropy. Moreover, we expand the entropy in the low temperature limit and find the leading thermal correction term which is consistent with the universal behavior suggested in arXiv:1403.0578 [hep-th]. Furthermore we investigate the large interval behavior of the entanglement entropy and show that the universal relation between the entanglement entropy and thermal entropy holds in this case.Comment: 16 pages.
