    Suggested Papers

    Below we have included some papers/pointers for people that are not able to find something that they would like to share.

    You can check out what some other reading groups at other universities are reading (see Related Links).
    TechTalks has some oral presentations from conferences, e.g., CVPR 2015, AAAI 2015, ACL 2015, NAACL 2015, CoNNL 2015.
    VideoLectures also has some oral presentations from conferences, e.g., ECCV 2014. Others might be posted on YouTube, e.g., ICLR 2015.

  • Deep Neural Decision Forests. P. Kontschieder, M. Fiterau, A. Criminisi, S.R. Bulo. ICCV 2015.
  • Deep Residual Learning for Image Recognition. K. He, X. Zhang, S. Ren, J. Sun. arXiv 2015.

    1. How is the presenters' order generated?
    The presenters' order is generated from the presenters' list in a FIFO manner (but the list is initially generated randomly).

    2. Who is responsible if I can not present at the scheduled time?

    3. What should I do if I can not present at the scheduled time?
    As early as possible, let the group organizer (zhangp -at- vt.edu) know about your situation. Also contact other presenters to see if they are willing to swap dates with you.

    4. I have a question not listed here...
    Then ask by sending an e-mail to the mailing list (cvmlreadinggroup-g -at- vt.edu).
