Intrinsic Images in the Wild

Introducing a large-scale, public dataset for intrinsic image decompositions of indoor scenes (Intrinsic Images in the Wild) with crowd-sourced annotations of pairwise comparisons of material properties. The approach develops a dense CRF-based algorithm for intrinsic image decomposition that outperforms state-of-the-art algorithms.

AverageExplorer: Interactive Exploration and Alignment of Visual Data Collections

AverageExplorer is an interactive framework that allows a user to rapidly explore and visualize a large image collection using the medium of average images. Its main functionality is simultaneous image clustering and alignment, but it can also be used for other vision and graphics applications including propagating annotations and interactive portraits.
