OPPO bags 11Awards at the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Conference 2021.

OPPO Gizmo Manila

  OPPO recently took part in the premier annual computer vision event Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Conference (CVPR) 2021. During the conference, OPPO's achievements in AI were recognized with its placing in six major Challenges in eleven different contests in total demonstrating the company's industry-leading technological strengths and innovative breakthroughs in AI. The team participating in the CVPR 2021 competition on behalf of OPPO came from the Intelligent Perception and Interaction Department of the OPPO Research Institute, whose entries in the six major Challenges of Multi-Agent Behavior, SoccerNet, LOVEU, AVA-Kinetics, MMact, and People in Context ended with excellent results. Through the optimization and training of AI algorithms, the team's work continues to strengthen OPPO's AI capabilities and the ability of its AI technology to better serve people.

  Among its eleven honors, OPPO received three awards in the Multi-Agent Behavior Challenge, which assesses an AI model's ability to understand, define, and predict complex interactions between intelligent agents such as animals and human beings. OPPO ultimately won the first-place prize in the Learning New Behavior category, second-place in Classical Classification, and third-place in Annotation Style Transfer, distinguishing itself from over 240 other participants thanks to its leading AI capabilities. This same technology is currently playing an essential role in OPPO's factory, where the algorithms assist workers in reducing operational mistakes, particularly in key production steps, to ensure their own safety as well as the quality of products coming off the production line.

From computational intelligence to human-centric intelligence, OPPO improves AI's ability to understand people 

  Through its mission of "Technology for Mankind, Kindness for the World," OPPO is building capabilities in human-centric AI. In the 3D Face Reconstruction from Multiple 2D Images Challenge, OPPO's self-developed AI algorithm was able to reconstruct 3D facial shapes with an error of around 1mm, leading it to take second place in the main index score ranking. OPPO's technology overcomes problems associated with unclear facial features, exaggerated expressions, and even damaged image data caused by real-life movements, especially in dynamic videos, to produce more accurate 3D facial models.

AI that understands space and time

  In the MMact Challenge, OPPO took second place in both the Cross-Modal Action Recognition and Cross-Model Action Temporal Localization tasks. OPPO's powerful AI algorithm can accurately recognize more than ten types of actions in a video, such as talking, crouching, and walking, using only visual data. This technology is expected to be widely adopted in smart homes in the future, with benefits including the ability to better take care of the children, pets, the elderly, or other vulnerable groups at home. For example, the AI can alert parents in another room as soon as a baby or child exhibits actions that could be potentially dangerous.

  OPPO also won third place in the AVA-Kinetics Challenge, which makes use of the industry's first dataset to include both space and time information. The Challenge's Positioning competition has long been one of the most popular competitions in the field of artificial intelligence, with competitors including those from top international technology companies and universities.

OPPO continues to explore the frontiers of AI technology

  At this year's CVPR, OPPO also made a new milestone in the more cutting-edge academic challenges, including taking two third-place in LOVEU((Long-form Video Understanding) challenge. The LOVEU challenge requires AI technology to understand the content of a video and segment it into chunks without being given pre-defined categories. Given the huge possible variety of content, the challenge poses a significant test for the ability of AI algorithms to be applied to more generalized situations: The AI needs to think like a human being, understand colors, objects, human actions, and even light in the video, and make judgments on how these change over time. In the future, this technology has the potential to be widely used as the foundation for further AI tasks in video processing, such as facial detection and behavior recognition.
