CALL FOR PAPERS


Special Issue on Virtual Images for Visual Artificial Intelligence


Summary and Scope

Recently, deep learning has become one of the core technologies of computer vision and artificial intelligence. Deep learning is a data-driven technology and its performance heavily relies on large-scale labeled data, e.g., ImageNet and MS COCO. Unfortunately, it is rather expensive to collect and annotate large-scale image data from the real world, the collected real images are limited in covering complex environmental conditions, and the real scenes are uncontrollable and unrepeatable. As a result, the performance of current deep learning systems is not satisfactory while working in complex scenarios, such as autonomous driving and intelligent monitoring scenarios.


In light of the disadvantages of collecting images from the real world, more and more researchers start to synthesize and use virtual images for computer vision research. A variety of advanced techniques including computer graphics simulation, image style transfer, and generative models have been used for virtual image generation*. The virtual images are especially valuable to the training, testing, understanding and optimization of learning-based models in computer vision**.


This special issue emphasizes the important role of virtual images in deep learning and computer vision research, and welcomes a broad range of submissions developing and using virtual images for visual artificial intelligence. The list of possible topics includes, but is not limited to:


New image synthesis methods

Computer graphics and virtual/augmented reality for scene simulation

Graphics rendering techniques for generating photorealistic virtual images

Image-to-image translation and video-to-video translation

Image super-resolution

Deep generative models related to virtual images (variational autoencoders, generative adversarial networks, etc.)

Neural networks that learn from virtual images

Domain adaptation methods for deep learning

Understanding deep architectures using virtual images

Intelligent visual computing with virtual images

Virtual-real interactive parallel vision and parallel imaging

Virtual images and artistic creation

Applications of virtual images to intelligent systems (robots, autonomous vehicles, visual monitoring systems, medical devices, and so on)

Submission Guidelines

Authors should prepare their manuscripts according to the "Instructions for Authors" guidelines of “Neurocomputing” outlined at the journal website

https://www.elsevier.com/journals/neurocomputing/0925-2312/guide-for-authors.

All papers will be peer-reviewed following a regular reviewing procedure. Each submission should clearly demonstrate evidence of benefits to society or large communities. Originality and impact on society, in combination with a media-related focus and innovative technical aspects of the proposed solutions will be the major evaluation criteria.
