What I feel

Computer vision is an amazing and useful technology.
It is artificial intelligence, not God or laws, that makes all men equal.

Food Recommendation by ACCV Programme Chairs
The following is a list of some well-known Singapore dishes that are worth trying.
Laksa
A spicy noodle coconut-based soup with a mixture of Chinese and Malay style.
Laksa

Chicken Rice
A simple dish of chicken served with specially prepared rice. Don’t underestimate the simplicity of this dish, as it is full of flavor when you taste it.
Chicken Rice

Chilli Crab
Crab with a sweet and savoury chilli source. It is usually served with some Chinese bread (called Mantou - man-toe) for dipping in the sauce. Price of crabs can be a little expensive, do enquire the price (normally they are charged per kilogram) before ordering. That said, they are still definitely worth a try. Even renowned celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay loves them!
Chilli Crab

  1. It is not really that spicy.
  2. According to Wikipedia, it is ranked #35 on the World’s 50 most delicious food by CNN in 2011.

Prata
An Indian style fried pancake served with vegetable or fish based curry (don’t be shy if it says fish-head curry — this is one of the most common types and is very good). Prata shops generally serve a variety of pratas with different fillings, e.g. egg prata, mushroom prata, and so on. Egg and plain pratas are the most common.

Kaya Toast
Kaya toast is a very common breakfast food or afternoon snack in Singapore. Kaya is a type of spread made from eggs, sugar, coconut and pandan leaves. This is often served with coffee and two soft boiled eggs. It is often served by stalls/shops selling drinks.

Bak Kut Teh
The name literally translates as “meat bone tea”, and at its simplest, consists of meaty pork ribs simmered in a complex broth of herbs and spices (including star anise, cinnamon, cloves, fennel seeds and garlic) for hours. This dish is normally served with rice and goes very well with side dishes like you tiao (fried dough) and steamed peanuts.

I don’t have work to present on workshop sessions. So I was hanging around today, choosing some of the talks to listen to.

Invited Talk: Learning a Deep Convolutional Network for Image Super-resolution, Chen Change Loy (CUHK, Hong Kong)

http://mmlab.ie.cuhk.edu.hk/projects/SRCNN.html

This is the most valuable talk in my opinion.

Invited Talk by Xiaogang Wang on Deep Learning about Face
Deep Learning Face Representation by Joint Identification-Verification

http://www.ee.cuhk.edu.hk/~xgwang/publications_topic.htmls

The accent of Xiaogang is quite Chinglish, much worse than Chen Change Loy. Even so, Xiaogang’s work are great. It seems that Xiaogang and Shuicheng Yan have a close relationship.

Invited Talk: Deep Learning for Image Classification - How Far Have We Come? Hanlin Goh (Astar, Singapore)

http://www1.i2r.a-star.edu.sg/~hlgoh/

Invited Talk: Towards real time CNN trackers, Yi Li (NICTA, Autralia)

http://users.cecs.anu.edu.au/~yili/

Interesting guy, and fantastic work.

The final oral session by two Chinese students(from Tongji and CAS) are awful. The poster session, however is better and interesting, in my view. It seems quite emergency for Chinese students to improve their skills on giving talks.

It is quite ironic that most of the invited speakers were talking mainly about their work on CVPR 2014 and ECCV 2014, while their work on this ACCV seems not as excellent.

Uptate on Nov. 3:
It turns out that some of the poster session papers in the W3 - Deep Learning on Visual Data will give oral presentation on the main conference track.
I’m talking about:

Deep Representations to Model User ‘Likes’, Sharath Chandra Guntuku, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore; Joey Tianyi Zhou, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore; Sujoy Roy, Institute for Infocomm Research, Singapore; Lin Weisi, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore; Ivor Tsang, University of Technology, Australia.
