Weijian Deng

Third-year PhD Student

About Me

I am a third-year PhD student at the College of Engineering and Computer Science, Australian National University, where I am supervised by Prof. Stephen Gould and Dr. Liang Zheng. I work closely with Dr. Yumin Suh. Before that, I received the M.Phil in Computer Science from the University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2019, advised by Prof. Qixiang Ye and Prof. Jianbin Jiao. I obtained the B.Eng. from Beijing Jiaotong University in 2016, advised by Dr. Jupeng Li.

Research interest My general research interest is to develop deep learning models for computer vision tasks (e.g., fine-grained object recognition). Recently, I focus on Understanding Model Decision under Dynamic Testing Environments. Please check our [ CVPR 2021 work] and [ ICML 2021 work].

Selected Projects

Similarity-preserving Image-image Domain Adaptation for Person Re-identification

Weijian Deng, Liang Zheng, Qixiang Ye, Yi Yang, Jianbin Jiao (arXiv 2018) [Paper, Code]

Fine-grained Classification via Categorical Memory Networks

Weijian Deng, Joshua Marsh, Stephen Gould, Liang Zheng (arXiv 2020) [Paper]

Visual Domain Adaptation Challenge (VisDA 2020 in conjunction with ECCV 2020)

This year we focus on domain adaptive instance retrieval, where the source and target domains have completely different classes (instance IDs). The particular task is to retrieve the pedestrian instances of the same ID as the query image. [Chanllenge Page]
