Recognition is a fundamental problem in machine learning and computer vision. In this challenge, we introduce a few datasets from Google StreetView which include street scenes of urban areas.
We propose two tasks:
For the first task we recommend to recognize businesses including: bank, gas station, parking garage, hotel, restaurant. For the second task we recommend object categories of stop sign, ATM machine, bus stop, street sign, fire hydrant. Participants are encouraged to submit their results for just one of the tasks or for the two of them, and for one or multiple categories, or for new categories defined for street scenes. Methods trained on other datasets are allowed, but results on the given StreetView datasets are required in the submission.< /p>
The datasets contain Google StreetView images from Pittsburgh and San Francisco. Please email your name, affiliation and address to firstname.lastname@example.org to download the datasets.
SUBMISSION AND EVALUATION
A short paper (4 pages) describing the proposed algorithms and results on the provided datasets should be submitted through the main conference submission website. These papers will be reviewed mainly based on:
