Adobe Research once again continued in its core mission of developing innovative new technologies this year, with Adobe authors publishing 82 research papers at the top computer vision and graphics conferences in 2018:
- CVPR 2018 (Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition): Adobe authors contributed to 30 papers
- SIGGRAPH 2018 (ACM Special Interest Group on Computer GRAPHics and Interactive Techniques): Adobe authors contributed to 12 papers, plus 4 Transactions on Graphics (TOG) papers
- ECCV 2018 (European Conference on Computer Vision): Adobe authors contributed to 27 papers
- SIGGRAPH Asia 2018: Adobe authors contributed to 9 papers
Nearly all of these papers came from university collaborations. Most were first-authored by university PhD students following successful summer internships working with Adobe researchers. (Find instructions on applying for a 2019 internship here.)
We also published actively in the fields of natural language processing, human-computer interaction, machine learning, and more; stay tuned for future posts about those papers. In 2018, across all fields, Adobe authors contributed to a total of more than 220 published research papers.
In addition, Adobe researchers received 9 best paper awards in 2018, at AAAI (Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence), CHI (ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems), SIGDIAL (ACL/ ISCA Special Interest Group on Discourse and Dialogue), and others.
Here is a sampling of Adobe Research’s 2018 papers in computer vision and graphics:
