I think the secret is the simplicity and the fact that it’s very fast in practice.” Away from writing top-rated papers, Florian works at the intersection of machine learning and mathematical optimization in visual computing. Meanwhile, Paul explores solutions to 3D shape matching problems with optimization methods. Looking ahead, Florian acknowledges an unresolved challenge: “The most critical open problem is whether an algorithm exists to solve this problem in polynomial time,” he ponders. “What we have is fast in practice, but the worst-case time is still exponential. The next step would be to investigate if it’s possible to come up with a similar formalism that could lead to a polynomial time algorithm that is provably fast.” The BEST OF CVPR 2024 continues on the next page with another exceptional Oral Paper!
