Vision Applications & Solutions to
Biased or Scarce Data

(VASBSD)

In Conjunction with IEEE Winter Conference on Applications of Computer Vision (WACV) 2021

January 9, 2021 (Virtual Workshop)

About VASBSD 2021

About VASBSD 2021

With the increasing appetite for data in data-driven methods, the issues of biased and scarce data have become a major bottleneck in developing generalizable and scalable computer vision solutions, as well as effective deployment of these solutions in real-world scenarios. To tackle these challenges, researchers from both academia and industry must collaborate and make progress in fundamental research and applied technologies. The organizing committee and keynote speakers of VASBSD 2021 consist of experts from both academia and industry with rich experiences in designing and developing robust computer vision algorithms and tranfering them to real-world solutions. Following the tradition of VASBSD 2020, VASBSD 2021 provides a focused venue to discuss and disseminate research related to bias and scarcity topics in computer vision.
