Fast High-Performance Recognition Systems with Recurrent Neural Networks and LSTM

講演者: Volkmar Frinken (九州大学大学院システム情報科学研究院・特任助教)

Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) and their application to Pattern Recognition will be presented, with a special focus on Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) Neural Networks. Several problems of simple RNNs are described and LSTM Neural Networks are introduced as a solution for those problems. For a better understanding of the network, its behavior on several toy problems. Finally, a quick outlook on extended architectures, such as the bi- and multi- directional LSTM is give. An overview of real-world PR-applications such as speech, handwriting and other PR-domains will be given will conclude the talk.

Volkmar Frinken is Research Assistant Professor and works since October 2013 at Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan. After obtaining his PhD in 2011 from the University of Bern, Switzerland, he spent 2 years at the Computer Vision Center in Barcelona, Spain. His research interests encompass all areas related to sequential processing, with a focus on handwriting recognition, recurrent neural networks, hidden Markov models, and machine learning techniques such as semi-supervised learning.

Approximation of Graph Edit Distance Based on Hausdorff Matching

講演者: Andreas Fischer (Polytechnique Montreal, Canada,学術研究員)

Graph edit distance is a powerful and flexible method for error-tolerant graph matching. Yet it can only be calculated for small graphs in practice due to its exponential time complexity when considering unconstrained graphs. In this talk, a recently proposed quadratic time approximation of graph edit distance based on Hausdorff matching is presented. In a series of experiments the performance of the proposed "Hausdorff edit distance" is evaluated in the context of graph classification and is compared with a cubic time algorithm based on the assignment problem. Investigated applications include nearest neighbor classification of graphs representing letter drawings, fingerprints, and molecular compounds as well as hidden Markov model classification of vector space embedded graphs representing handwriting. In many cases, a substantial speedup is achieved with only a minor loss in accuracy or, in one case, even with a gain in accuracy. Overall, the proposed Hausdorff edit distan ce shows a promising potential in terms of flexibility, efficiency, and accuracy.

Andreas Fischer is a post-doctoral researcher at Polytechnique Montreal, Canada. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science in 2008 and 2012 from the University of Bern, Switzerland. He has more than 30 publications related to handwriting recognition, historical document analysis, hidden Markov models, recurrent neural networks, and graph matching for structural pattern recognition.
