    Hi guys, I guess by today all you developers out there have downloaded and tested metaio6, too. metaio put a nice summarizing video online, that I wanted to share today. It takes a closer look at the newly introduced hybrid tracking, that runs their tracking methods in parallel and uses “whatever works best for the moment”. If you don’t know what this is about, let me go over it quickly. The two tracking variants used are the well-known feature based 3D tracking (using SLAM) and the younger edge-based tracking: the first was a big success to finally get rid of the…

    Repost from googleplus stream Finds in arxiv Computer vision Convex Relaxations of SE(2) and SE(3) for Visual Pose Estimation Finding camera position from the series of 2D (or depth) images is one of the most common (and difficult) task of computer vision. The biggest problem here is incorporating rotation into cost(energy) function,  that should minimize reprojection(fro 2D) error (seehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bundle_adjustment). Usually it’s done by minimization on manifold – locally presenting rotation parameter space as linear subspace. The problem with that approach is…
  • “get nan or inf error” in cuda-convnet – possible fix

    17 Jan 2014 | 1:57 am
    “get nan or inf” error happens sometimes on lower-end GPU’s in cuda-convnet. I have traced this error to NaN values in the weights of convolutional layers. I still not clear to me why these NaN values appear in the weights. Are they backpropagate from fully-connected layers or popping up in the convolution kernel? It looks to me latter is more likely. Anyway I made a temporary fix – just scan weight’s gradients with simple cuda kernel and replace NaN’a with zeroes. Didn’t observe the error after that. I have pushed fix into windows version of…

Arad missed his train but felt that he had been rewarded by seeing this beautiful work. This piece is inspired by that memory.
