Abstract: This paper presents details of a general purpose micro-taskon-demand platform based on the crowdsourcing philosophy. This platformwas specifically developed for mobile devices in order to exploit the strengths of such devices; namely: i) massivity, ii) ubiquityand iii) embedded sensors.The combined use of mobile platforms and the crowdsourcing model allows to tackle from the simplest to the most complex tasks.Users experience is the highlighted feature of this platform (this fact is extended to both task-proposer and task- solver).Proper tools according with a specific task are provided to a task-solver in order to perform his/her job in a simpler, faster and appealing way.Moreover, a task can be easily submitted by just selecting predefined templates, which cover a wide range of possible applications.Examples of its usage in computer vision and computer games are provided illustrating the potentiality of the platform.

Abstract: This manuscript addresses the cross-spectral stereo correspondence problem. It proposes the usage of a dense flow field based representation instead of the original cross-spectral images, which have a low correlation. In this way, working in the flow field space, classical cost functions can be used as similarity measures. Preliminary experimental results on urban environments have been obtained showing the validity of the proposed approach.

Abstract: This paper presents a novel approach for colorizing
near infrared (NIR) images. The approach is based on
image-to-image translation using a Cycle-Consistent adversarial network for learning the color channels on unpaired dataset. This architecture is able to handle unpaired datasets. The approach uses as generators tailored
networks that require less computation times, converge
faster and generate high quality samples. The obtained results have been quantitatively—using standard evaluation
metrics—and qualitatively evaluated showing considerable
improvements with respect to the state of the art

Abstract: This paper proposes a novel approach to estimate the
Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) just from
an RGB image. The NDVI values are obtained by using
images from the visible spectral band together with a synthetic near infrared image obtained by a cycled GAN. The
cycled GAN network is able to obtain a NIR image from
a given gray scale image. It is trained by using unpaired
set of gray scale and NIR images by using a U-net architecture and a multiple loss function (gray scale images are
obtained from the provided RGB images). Then, the NIR
image estimated with the proposed cycle generative adversarial network is used to compute the NDVI index. Experimental results are provided showing the validity of the proposed approach. Additionally, comparisons with previous
approaches are also provided.

Abstract: This paper details the results and main findings of the
second iteration of the Multi-modal Aerial View Object
Classification (MAVOC) challenge. This year’s MAVOC
challenge is the second iteration. The primary goal of
both MAVOC challenges is to inspire research into methods for building recognition models that utilize both synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and electro-optical (EO) input
modalities. Teams are encouraged/challenged to develop
multi-modal approaches that incorporate complementary
information from both domains. While the 2021 challenge
showed a proof of concept that both modalities could be
used together, the 2022 challenge focuses on the detailed
multi-modal models. Using the same UNIfied COincident
Optical and Radar for recognitioN (UNICORN) dataset and
competition format that was used in 2021. Specifically, the
challenge focuses on two techniques, (1) SAR classification
and (2) SAR + EO classification. The bulk of this document is dedicated to discussing the top performing methods
and describing their performance on our blind test set. Notably, all of the top ten teams outperform our baseline. For
SAR classification, the top team showed a 129% improvement over our baseline and an 8% average improvement
from the 2021 winner. The top team for SAR + EO classification shows a 165% improvement with a 32% average
improvement over 2021.
