Dec. 4, 2018
CVPR18 Best Paper Award Honorable Mention awarded to Deep Learning of Graph Matching
June 22, 2018

This works builds on the matrix backpropagation methodology introduced in our previous paper: Matrix Backpropagation for Deep Networks with Structured Layers, C. Ionescu and O. Vantzos and C. Sminchisescu.

Matrix backpropagation (with code) for training deep networks with structured layers, and 3d scene flow methods, will appear at ICCV 2015
