Los Alamitos, California – 01 July 20222022 IEEE/CVF Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR), the largest gathering of professionals from across the world and from every aspect of the computer vision, machine learning (ML), and artificial intelligence (AI) industries, successfully concluded this week, breaking records with over 10,250 conference registrants and 2000 technical papers presented.

Computer vision is a field of AI that enables computers and systems to derive meaningful information from digital images, videos, and other visual inputs — and take actions or make recommendations based on that information. CVPR 2022 convened the brightest minds in the field for a week-long program of papers, keynotes, workshops, tutorials, posters, virtual learning, and discussion, and showcased the advancement of computer vision on a global scale.

CVPR’s annual conference covered an extensive range of computer vision, AI, and ML topics and applications; the top five research categories at CVPR 2022 ranked by the number of papers accepted this year are:

  • Recognition: detection, categorization, retrieval
  • Image and video synthesis and generation
  • 3D from multi-view and sensors
  • Low level vision
  • Vision + language.

CVPR 2022 experienced a record number of paper submissions – 8,161 – of which only 2,064 were accepted at the conference.

CVPR annually recognizes such research through its best papers awards, and the event is internationally known for its prestigious awards program. From this year’s 33 finalists selected from the 2,064 accepted papers, the Awards Committee presented the following awards:

Best Paper Award
Learning to Solve Hard Minimal Problems
Authors: Petr Hruby, Timothy Duff, Anton Leykin, and Tomas Pajdla

Best Paper Honorable Mention
Dual-Shutter Optical Vibration Sensing
Authors: Mark Sheinin, Dorian Chan, Matthew O’Toole, Srinivasa Narasimhan

Best Student Paper Award
EPro-PnP: Generalized End-to-End Probabilistic Perspective-n-Points for Monocular Object Pose Estimation

The event’s exhibit hall packed with 137 exhibitors provided an abundance of advancements to explore and included companies noted for their AI programs such as Apple, Meta, Microsoft, and TikTok, as well as autonomous driving companies like Argo AI, Tesla, cruise, and Zoox.

Exhibitor highlights include:

  • Unity Computer Vision showcased “Digital Humans for Computer Vision” – a proprietary digital human generator was developed that contains highly-parametric and simulation-ready 3D human assets.
  • Tesla brought the Tesla Cybertruck prototype to CVPR for attendees to inspect up-close.
  • Zoox, the autonomous robotaxi company bought by Amazon, showcased its purpose-built vehicle for the first time at the conference – guests were able to envision the future of transportation by sitting inside.
  • At the Meta booth, attendees met with researchers actively exploring the latest machine learning techniques for application to various areas of machine perception.

The CVPR 2022 keynote speaker lineup included the following high-profile industry leaders:

  • Josh Tennenbaum – Professor, Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), presented “Learning to See the Human Way”
  • Xuedong Huang – Technical Fellow, Chief Technology Officer Azure AI, presented “Toward Integrative AI with Computer Vision”
  • Kavita Bala – Dean, Ann S. Bowers College of Computing and Information Science, Cornell University, presented “Understanding Visual Appearance from Micron to Global Scale.”

A panel session covering “Embodied Computer Vision,” featured Martial Hebert, Carnegie Mellon University, as the moderator, with panelists that included Kristen Grauman, University of Texas, Austin, and Meta AI; Nicholas Roy, Zoox, and MIT; and Michael Ryoo, Stonybrook University and Google.

The 2023 CVPR event will take place in Vancouver, from June 17 to 23, 2023.
