Leaders in deep learning for computer vision since 2014

Kitware at CVPR

As Gold Level Sponsors of this year’s virtual CVPR Conference, Kitware continues its active participation and support of the computer vision community. Check out this video to learn more about our capabilities and the deep learning expertise we have pioneered in computer vision.

Schedule of Events

Kitware is actively participating in the fully virtual CVPR 2020 conference. We are proud to be presenting our paper that was accepted at this highly-selective conference. In addition, we helped organize the full-day workshop on media forensics and sponsored the EarthVision workshop. Our senior director of computer vision reprised his role as an Area Chair to assist with the main conference paper selection. And finally, we were honored to have members of Kitware’s Computer Vision and Data and Analytics Teams develop the visualizations on CVPR’s website to accommodate virtual attendees.

Join us virtually for these featured events:

Sunday, June 14th 8:30 AM – 5 PM (PT)

EarthVision: Large Scale Computer Vision for Remote Sensing Imagery

Computer vision, machine learning, and signal/image processing are all critical components to Earth observation and remote sensing. Together, they provide large-scale, homogeneous information about processes occurring at the surface of the Earth that can have a big impact on human society, economy, industry, and the planet. This workshop aims to raise awareness of this highly challenging and quickly evolving field of research and to foster collaboration between the computer vision and Earth observation communities.


EarthVision Workshop

Monday, June 15th 8:45 AM – 6 PM (PT)

Workshop on Media Forensics

Media forensics has recently become a topic of interest within the computer vision community as a result of the increasing prevalence of fabricated media spreading misinformation. And now, with the emergence of more sophisticated ML and CV techniques, media forensics has become a broad and prominent area of research. That’s why it is critical to keep advancing on all fronts of media forensics, from the detection of manipulations to biometric implications, misrepresentation/spoofing, and more.

Kitware Co-organizers: Arslan Basharat, assistant director of computer vision; Scott McCloskey, assistant director of computer vision


Media Forensics Workshop

Tuesday, June 16th 4-6 PM and Wednesday, June 17th 4-6 AM (PT)

DOA-GAN: Dual-Order Attentive Generative Adversarial Network for Image Copy-move Forgery Detection and Localization

Manipulated images are being used for nefarious purposes to hide content or to duplicate certain objects through copy-move operations. Well-crafted forgery in images can be very challenging for both a human or a machine to discover (e.g. When an image patch with a uniform background is copied to hide an object). In this paper, we propose a Generative Adversarial Network with a dual-order attention model to detect and localize copy-move forgery. You can read the full paper here.

Authors: Ashraful Islam, Chengjiang Long, Arslan Basharat, and Anthony Hoogs
