Deep neural networks have demonstrated state-of-the-art performance on a wide range of tasks. These models, however, often have difficulty in generalizing to unseen samples and domains. The major challenges include representation biases in our datasets, scarcity of labeled training examples in target domains, and the diversity of testing cases. In this talk, I will show how we tackle these challenges and learn models that generalize better to unseen testing cases and domains. I will discuss several techniques for improving generalization in the context of specific computer vision applications, including activity understanding, object recognition, and semantic segmentation.
