blogging from CVPR2010

It might not be one of those glamorous Apple events during which Steve Jobs introduces a new shiny gadget for the masses to desire, but plenty of exciting stuff happens at CVPR which instills desire into our souls, that is, the souls of computer vision scientists. Wouldn't you rather see the Great Torralba give a talk over some big company's chief executive officer? For those of you who do not know what CVPR is -- it is one of the big Computer Vision conferences during which we (the geeks, scientists, engineers, developers, hackers, and mathematicians) exchange ideas regarding our most recent research in the world of computer vision.

I am flying to SF tomorrow morning, and will be blogging about some of the cool papers I encounter at this year's CVPR. I do not have a paper at this year's conference so I'm in full assimilate-knowledge mode where I hope to absorb thousands of ideas related to my field. I already mentioned some of Kristen Grauman's cool segmentation papers, but expect to see in the next several blog posts many additional discussions for what I think are "exciting" papers. I am already getting excited and have plenty of papers to read during my flight, in addition to finishing Everything is Miscellaneous. I will be blogging from CVPR, like an Apple fanboy would at one of those Apple WWDC events -- but I will share math, theory, algorithms, and the like.

As always, the list of CVPR 2010 papers on the web can be found here.
