Transparent objects are very common in our life but always ignored in computer vision research. Multimodality inputs such as polarization images help to recognize transparent objects [1] [2]. In the scope of this thesis, we will extend our self-supervision pipeline [3] to transparent categories leveraging polarization images.


Students should be familiar with pytorch or tensorflow and have hands-on experience with deep learning in past projects. Aiming for a paper publication would be a plus.
