52nd IEEE Applied Imagery Pattern Recognition Workshop

Sept 27-29th, 2023

Saint Louis, Missouri, USA

Deep Learning Using Synthetic, Augmented, and Natural Datasets

AIPR continues the half-century of success and tradition in pioneering new topics in applied image and visual understanding. Forbes estimates that artificial intelligence (AI) will become a $150 trillion dollar industry. AI is impacting nearly every facet of life and with the advent of large language models and transformers for dialog (i.e. Generative Pre-trained Transformer (GPT), Bard) and novel image or video generation (i.e. Dall-E) it will likely redefine our world faster than previous advances in computational learning. While machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) is heavily anchored in supervised learning, recent algorithms (e.g., ChatGPT, DALL-E, etc.) are using self-supervised, transfer, and reinforcement learning. However, all these approaches are data intensive. Where does the data and its associated truth/metadata come from? While simulation has been around for decades, what’s new is a convergence in the maturity, realism, and availability of relatively simple-to-use tools and content/assets for individuals who are not computer graphics, physics, nor gaming experts. Companies like Epic Games, Google, Microsoft, Meta, OpenAI, Apple, NVIDIA, IBM, Tesla, Scale AI, and others have taken this a step further and developed billion-dollar in-house solutions based on synthetic data-driven AI. The 2023 IEEE AIPR Workshop will explore AI/ML/DL in synthetic, augmented, and natural datasets. In addition to papers on regular AIPR topics in applied imagery, as they pertain to computer vision, imaging, and pattern recognition, the Workshop Committee invites papers focused on, but not limited to, the following:

Deadline for abstracts: August 6th, 2023 . The Workshop will include oral and poster presentations, several keynote talks that provide in-depth overviews of the fields, and a special session on the theme topic. Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore's scope and quality requirements. AIPR 2023, the 52nd annual workshop, is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, and organized by the AIPR Workshop Committee with generous support from sponsors.

Abstract Deadline: August 6th, 2023
