Toward Deep Geometric Image Understanding

Achieving human-level visual understanding requires extracting rich geometric information from images. In particular, it entails moving beyond 2D bounding boxes to more detailed geometric representations. In this talk I will present recent work in this direction, specifically keypoint localization and single-image depth estimation. For keypoint localization, I will present new neural architectures and representations. For single-image depth estimation, I will show how to use crowdsourcing to improve depth estimation for images in the wild.
