DSRC Seminar | Connecting Image and Text for Computer Vision


The talk will first introduce the widely used cross image-text matching models like CLIP, and then present our research works on computer vision, which employs these pre-trained models for weakly supervised semantic segmentation. Approaches fusing text information to improve the performance of thyroid nodule segmentation, and precision of dental CBCT-based implant position prediction, will be followed. After introducing text-based face and image generation approaches, the latest works applying LLM (Large Language Model) for general CV tasks like object detection, captioning and VQA will be discussed.
