Optical feedback has an impact on the tunability of lasers. We created a model of a tunable distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) laser describing the effect of optical feedback from a constant reflector distance on the wavelength tuning. Theoretical and experimental results are in good agreement. A further discussion of the model sheds light on design rules to reduce the effect of optical feedback on the tuning behavior. We introduced a new parameter called mode loss difference (MLD) as a metric for the feedback tolerance of the tuning behavior. A large MLD indicates higher tolerance of the laser to cavity length variations.

Accurate and Robust Neural Networks for Face Morphing Attack Detection

Clemens Peter Seibold, Peter Eisert, Anna Hilsmann, Wojciech Samek

A morphed face image is a fusion of two face images and represents biometrics of two different subjects. Embedded in an official document, it can cause immense damage, since both subjects can claim its ownership and thus share an identity. In this paper, we propose and compare different neural network training schemes based on alternations of training data to obtain accurate and robust detectors for such kind of fraud. In addition, we use layer-wise relevance propagation (LRP) to analyze the differently trained networks in depth.

Clustered Federated Learning: Model-Agnostic Distributed Multi-Task Optimization under Privacy Constraints

Felix Sattler, Klaus-Robert Müller, Wojciech Samek

Federated Learning (FL) is currently the most widely adopted framework for collaborative training of (deep) machine learning models under privacy constraints. However, FL yields suboptimal results if the local clients’ data distributions diverge. The proposed Clustered FL approach tackles the problem by identifying diverging clients and grouping them into separate clusters.

Going beyond Free Viewpoint: Creating Animatable Volumetric Video of Human Performances

Anna Hilsmann, Oliver Schreer, Peter Eisert, Ingo Feldmann, Philipp Fechteler, Wolfgang Paier, Wieland Morgenstern

We present an end-to-end pipeline for the creation of high-quality animatable volumetric video content of human performances. Going beyond the application of free-viewpoint volumetric video, we allow re-animation of an actor’s performance through (i) the enrichment of the captured data with semantics and animation properties and (ii) hybrid geometry- and video-based animation combined with neural infilling.

High performance BH InAs/InP QD and InGaAsP/InP QW mode-locked lasers as comb and pulse sources

Marlene Zander, Martin Schell, Martin Moehrle, Wolfgang Rehbein, Jan C. Balzer, Steffen Breuer, Dieter Franke, Kevin Kolpatzeck

Coherent comb lasers may serve as a source for multiwavelength modulators in short reach transmission, or for phase controlled OFDM channels in long reach. We explore and compare quantum dot (QD) and quantum well (QW) lasers with more than 33 channels in the DWDM 50 GHz grid, thus enabling > 1 Tb/s optical transmission. In addition, the mode-locked devices can be applied as pulse sources with < 500 fs pulses by using a simple SMF.

Hybrid Human Modeling: Making Volumetric Video Animatable

Peter Eisert, Anna Hilsmann

Photo-realistic modeling and rendering of humans is extremely important for VR environments. While purely computer graphics modeling can achieve highly realistic human models, achieving real photo-realism with these models is computationally extremely expensive. Therefore, we enrich volumetric video with semantics and animation properties to make photo-realistic volumetric video animatable.

Determination of the optical properties of cholesteatoma in the spectral range of 250 to 800 nm

Eric Wisotzky, Peter Eisert, Anna Hilsmann, Florian Uecker, Philipp Arens, Steffen Dommerich

We determine the absorption and scattering coefficients of cholesteatoma and bone. In the near-UV and visual spectrum, clear differences exist between both tissues. These differences reveal the future possibility to detect and identify, automatically or semi-automatically, cholesteatoma tissue for active treatment decisions during image-guided surgery leading to a better surgical outcome.

DeepCABAC: A Universal Compression Algorithm for Deep Neural Networks

Simon Wiedemann, Heiner Kirchhoffer, Stefan Matlage, Paul Haase, Arturo Marban, Talmaj Marinc, David Neumann, Tung Nguyen, Ahmed Osman, Heiko Schwarz, Detlev Marpe, Thomas Wiegand, Wojciech Samek

This paper presents DeepCABAC, a universal compression algorithm for deep neural networks (DNNs) that through its adaptive, context-based rate modeling, allows an optimal quantization and coding of parameters. It compresses DNNs up to 5% of their original size with no accuracy loss and has been selected as basic compression technology for the emerging MPEG-7 part 17 standard on DNN compression.

Projection Distortion-based Object Tracking in Shader Lamp Scenarios

Niklas Gard, Peter Eisert, Anna Hilsmann

We enable dynamic projection mapping on 3d objects and present a model-based tracking strategy for projector camera-systems, which directly takes advantage from the projected content for pose estimation. Our method establishes a distortion free projection by first analysing and then correcting the distortion of the projection in a closed loop. Therefor an optical flow-based model is extended to the geometry of a projector-camera unit. We evaluate our procedure with real and synthetic images and obtain very precise registration results.

Determination of Optical Properties of Human Tissues obtained from Parotidectomy in the Spectral Range of 250 to 800 nm

Eric Wisotzky, Peter Eisert, Anna Hilsmann, Florian Uecker, Steffen Dommerich

We analyze five healthy soft tissue types as well as tumor tissue in terms of absorption and scatter coefficients in the spectral range of 250 to 800 nm. The spectral properties of the analyzed tissue types show relevant differences in this specific spectral range. This knowledge can be used for different medical and biomedical application areas as computer-aided diagnostics, intraoperative image guidance and histological analysis.
