  • LAL: linguistically aware learning for scene text recognition 

    Zheng, Yi; Qin, Wenda; Wijaya, Derry; Betke, Margrit (ACM, 2020-10-12)
    Scene text recognition is the task of recognizing character sequences in images of natural scenes. The considerable diversity in the appearance of text in a scene image and potentially highly complex backgrounds make text ...
  • Learning to separate: detecting heavily-occluded objects in urban scenes 

    Yang, Chenhongyi; Ablavsky, Vitaly; Wang, Kaihong; Feng, Qi; Betke, Margrit (Springer, Cham., 2020-12-04)
    While visual object detection with deep learning has received much attention in the past decade, cases when heavy intra-class occlusions occur have not been studied thoroughly. In this work, we propose a Non-Maximum-Suppression ...
  • Deep-learning-driven quantification of interstitial fibrosis in digitized kidney biopsies 

    Zheng, Yi; Cassol, Clarissa A.; Jung, Saemi; Veerapaneni, Divya; Chitalia, Vipul C.; Ren, Kevin Y.M.; Bellur, Shubha S.; Boor, Peter; Barisoni, Laura M.; Waikar, Sushrut S.; Betke, Margrit; Kolachalama, Vijaya B. (2021-08)
    Interstitial fibrosis and tubular atrophy (IFTA) on a renal biopsy are strong indicators of disease chronicity and prognosis. Techniques that are typically used for IFTA grading remain manual, leading to variability among ...
  • Learn to earn: enabling coordination within a ride-hailing fleet 

    Chaudhari, Harshal A.; Byers, John W.; Terzi, Evimaria (2020-12-10)
  • Liquid data networking 

    Byers, John W.; Luby, Michael (ACM, 2020-09-22)
  • A digital fountain retrospective 

    Byers, John W.; Luby, Michael; Mitzenmacher, Michael (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2019-11-08)
    We introduced the concept of a digital fountain as a scalable approach to reliable multicast, realized with fast and practical erasure codes, in a paper published in ACM SIGCOMM '98. This invited editorial, on the occasion ...
  • Bitcoin price prediction using transfer learning on financial micro-blogs 

    Davchev, Jovan; Mishev, Kostadin; Vodenska, Irena; Chitkushev, Ljubomir; Trajanov, Dimitar (2020-12-23)
    We present a methodology for predicting the price of Bitcoin using Twitter data and historical Bitcoin prices. Bitcoin is the largest cryptocurrency that, in terms of market capitalization, represents over 110 billion ...
  • New measures of journal impact based on the number of citations and PageRank 

    Souma, Wataru; Vodenska, Irena; Chitkushev, Lou (Digital Information Research Foundation, 2020-02-25)
    The number of citations has been used for measuring the significance of a paper. Moreover, we have the following question: which paper is the most important if there are some papers with the same number of citations? Some ...
  • Learning to scale multilingual representations for vision-language tasks 

    Burns, Andrea; Kim, Donghyun; Wijaya, Derry; Saenko, Kate; Plummer, Bryan A. (2020)
    Current multilingual vision-language models either require a large number of additional parameters for each supported language, or suffer performance degradation as languages are added. In this paper, we propose a Scalable ...
  • Application of seq2seq models on code correction 

    Huang, Shan; Zhou, Xiao; Chin, Sang (2021)
    We apply various seq2seq models on programming language correction tasks on Juliet Test Suite for C/C++ and Java of Software Assurance Reference Datasets and achieve 75% (for C/C++) and 56% (for Java) repair rates on these ...
