Weekly QuEST Discussion Topics and News, 25 Sept

QuEST 25 Sept 2015:


We will have our colleague ‘Tom’ M. give us a talk related to our recent focus on deep learning and a specific application we are very interested in ATR.


Title: ATR for Time Critical Targeting



For years, real-time automatic target recognition (ATR) for time critical targeting has been a challenging research problem.  Contested environments cause additional complexity for collecting target signatures.  Hence, next generation ATR research must address: (1) How ATR can be executed in real-time on a size, weight, and power (SWaP) constraint system and (2) How ATR performance can be improved when available data are sparse.  Deep Learning has been very effective for target recognition from optical imagery.  IBM has developed a special hardware called “True North” to execute DL algorithm on a SWaP constrained system.  True North uses a fraction of power compare to GPU, CPU, or FPGA.  In this talk, we will present how DL algorithm combined with True North can address the critical challenges of ATR.
