Many of our projects were made possible by a generous donation of GPU and server time from the W Booth School of Engineering Practice and Technology.
Mac AI’s team, led by Senior Project Manager Xiaohong Liu, won third place of the Demoireing challenge burst track at the international NTIRE 2020 computer vision conference in Seattle. The project uses a fully integrated attention mechanism, as well as U-nets and PCD. Read more about the novel architecture in the report!VIEW THIS PROJECT ↗
FishEye is a fourth-year thesis project undertaken by Victor Blaga and Andrew Garven, and currently being implemented in McMaster’s ABEL lab to automatically detect and track experimental footage. Specifically, the program uses YOLOv3 to track fish behavioural assays in real time, relieving undergraduate students of an otherwise mundane and time-consuming task.VIEW THIS PROJECT ↗
