My research focuses on web-supervised learning regarding visual concepts and incremental learning approaches. The objective is to minimize efforts for manually labeling training data which might also enable and improve domain adaptation for visual concept models. This requires, for instance, automatic acquisition of visual information from user-generated content such as Flickr and YouTube. In general, I am interested in deep learning, concept detection, and training data augmentation.
