ADAPT: Analytical Framework for Actionable Defense against Advanced Persistent Threats

The MURI research team will develop a novel game theory framework to address the continuous computer hacking attacks, known as advanced persistent threats, which are essentially a game played between the system and adversary, where each is constantly trying to outsmart the other. A unique trait of advanced persistent threats is that they consist of…

Digital Pathology: Accuracy, Viewing Behavior and Image Characterization (with PI: Joann Elmore at Harborview and others)

Pathologic assessment for a cancer diagnosis has for years been the “gold standard” guiding clinical care and research endeavors. However, diagnostic misclassification that can compromise clinical and research outcomes occurs in the interpretation of breast biopsy specimens, particularly at the benign to malignant and in-situ to invasive thresholds. At this point in time, technological advances…

3D Head Reconstruction from Images or Videos (with Ira Kemmelmacher-Shlizerman in CSE)

Acquiring high-detailed 3D head shape is challenging due to the highly non-rigid nature of human’s face. However, current high-detailed reconstruction methods usually require the subject to participate in the capture session with a complex setup. The goal of this work is to provide easy 3D head reconstruction methods to generate a personalized and high-detailed 3D…

Expression Recognition with Deep Neural Nets (with Barbara Mones in CSE)

We have developed a system called DeepExpr, a novel expression transfer approach from humans to multiple stylized characters. We first train two Convolutional Neural Networks to recognize the expression of humans and stylized characters independently. Then we utilize a transfer learning technique to learn the mapping from humans to characters to create a shared embedding…

Automatic Recognition of Power Line in Millimeter Wave Radar Video

Power lines present hazardous operating conditions for helicopters, especially when the pilot’s vision is obscured by dust, smoke, fog, rain or snow. For most of RGB cameras, power lines are usually subtle and difficult to be detected especially under poor lighting conditions and in the evening. Radar can work under poor visibility conditions and in…
