Visual Atoms and CVSSP win the Google Landmark Retrieval Challenge!
Visual Atoms and the University of Surrey CVSSP jointly participated in the Kaggle Google Landmark Retrieval Challenge and we are excited to announce that we have won this competition!
The competition addressed a fundamental problem in computer vision: given a query image, can you find similar images in a large database? This is especially important for query images containing landmarks, which accounts for a large portion of what people like to photograph. The competition was run on the largest worldwide dataset for image retrieval research, comprising more than a million images of 15 thousand unique landmarks.
