EE Meyer Building 1061

In the talk, I will present a distillation algorithm which operates on a large, unstructured, and noisy collections of internet images returned from an online object query. I will introduce the notion of a distilled set, which is a clean, coherent, and structured subset of inlier images, where the object of interest is properly segmented out throughout the set. I will also demonstrate the utility of our technique with a number of interesting graphics applications, including a novel data-driven morphing technique.
