  1. 1. Video Saliency Detection using Deep Learning

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Jakob Wiesinger; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : A deep learning model for video saliency detection is proposed and trained. The neural network architecture combines recent innovations in the field: A twostream approach merges two separate input streams for appearance and motion aspects of saliency. Pre-trained convolutional features detect objectness. READ MORE

  2. 2. Content-aware Video Compression

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Vivek Subramanian; [2019]
    Keywords : region-of-interest; saliency map; bitrate; H.264; video com­pression; quantization offset;

    Abstract : In a video there are certain regions in the image that viewers focus on more than others, which are called the salient regions or Regions­Of-Interest (ROI). This thesis aims to improve the perceived quality of videos by improving the quality of these ROis while degrading the quality of the other non-ROI regions of a frame to keep the same bitrate as would have been the case otherwise.

  3. 3. Latent Space Growing of Generative Adversarial Networks

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematik LTH

    Author : Erik Sandström; [2019]
    Keywords : Generative models; GAN; Generative Adversarial Networks; Artificial Intelligence; CelebA; Latent Space; Deep Learning; Computer Vision; Machine Learning; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a system, which builds on the Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) framework, with the focus of learning interpretable representations of data. The system is able to learn representations of data that are ordered in regards to the saliency of the attributes, in a completely unsupervised manner. READ MORE

  4. 4. Staging Appeal? A longitudinal study of the Sweden Democrat's programmatic development, between 1989 and 2014

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Author : Malin Bredenberg; [2019]
    Keywords : The Sweden Democrats; Populist Radical Right; ideological appeal; programmatic profiles; stages of party development; supply theory; Law and Political Science;

    Abstract : Can the Sweden Democrats (SDs) be accountable for their own success? If so, how can it be explained over time? This study sets out to measure the ideological appeal of the SDs and explain it via three stages of party development. Ideological appeal is conceptualised using saliency theory and explained via supply theory that centres on the behaviours of the SDs to win votes. READ MORE

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Author : Valentin Daur; [2018-06-21]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Corruption poses a serious challenge to democratic accountability as electoral punishment of corrupt incumbents remains limited and varies considerably across contexts. Moreover, the empirical evidence indicates that widespread corruption leads citizens to ‘exit’ options, such as abstention from the electoral process. READ MORE
