OpenLava google
OpenLava is an open source workload job scheduling software for a cluster of computers. OpenLava was derived from an early version of Platform LSF. Its configuration file syntax, API, and CLI have been kept unchanged. Therefore OpenLava is mostly compatible with Platform LSF. OpenLava was based on the Utopia research project at the University of Toronto. OpenLava is licensed under GNU General Public License v2.

Densely Connected Convolutional Network (DenseNet) google
Classical approaches for estimating optical flow have achieved rapid progress in the last decade. However, most of them are too slow to be applied in real-time video analysis. Due to the great success of deep learning, recent work has focused on using CNNs to solve such dense prediction problems. In this paper, we investigate a new deep architecture, Densely Connected Convolutional Networks (DenseNet), to learn optical flow. This specific architecture is ideal for the problem at hand as it provides shortcut connections throughout the network, which leads to implicit deep supervision. We extend current DenseNet to a fully convolutional network to learn motion estimation in an unsupervised manner. Evaluation results on three standard benchmarks demonstrate that DenseNet is a better fit than other widely adopted CNN architectures for optical flow estimation. …

Genetic-Evolutionary Adam (GADAM) google
Deep neural network learning can be formulated as a non-convex optimization problem. Existing optimization algorithms, e.g., Adam, can learn the models fast, but may get stuck in local optima easily. In this paper, we introduce a novel optimization algorithm, namely GADAM (Genetic-Evolutionary Adam). GADAM learns deep neural network models based on a number of unit models generations by generations: it trains the unit models with Adam, and evolves them to the new generations with genetic algorithm. We will show that GADAM can effectively jump out of the local optima in the learning process to obtain better solutions, and prove that GADAM can also achieve a very fast convergence. Extensive experiments have been done on various benchmark datasets, and the learning results will demonstrate the effectiveness and efficiency of the GADAM algorithm. …
