Lin Chen (陈林)

Greetings! I'm currently a PhD student in School of Automation, University of Science and Technology of China, advised by Prof. Feng Zhao. I got a B.E. degree at Anhui University in 2020 and join the USTC-BIVLab. And I serve as an research intern in Shanghai AI Laboratory now, supervised by Dr. Jiaqi Wang and Dr. Pan Zhang.

My research interest includes:

  • image semantic segmentation
  • transfer learning and parameter-efficient fine-tuning
  • vision-language models
I sincerely welcome discussions and collaborations. If you're interested, please feel free to reach out to me via email or WeChat (xiaoachen98).

A large-scale highly descriptive video-text dataset, with 40K captions annotated by GPT4V and 4.8M captions annotated by our ShareCaptioner-Video. The total videos last with 300 hours and 3000 hours separately!

Reins Are We on the Right Way for Evaluating Large Vision-Language Models?
Lin Chen*, Jinsong Li*, Xiaoyi Dong, Pan Zhang, Yuhang Zang, Zehui Chen, Haodong Duan, Jiaqi Wang, Yu Qiao, Dahua Lin, Feng Zhao
Arxiv, 2024
[project page] [paper] [code]

We identify two primary issues in existing evaluation studies for large vision-language models. We further develop an elite vision-indispensable multi-modal benchmark and two novel metrics to measure data leakage and actual performance gain in multi-modal training.

Reins Stronger, Fewer, & Superior: Harnessing Vision Foundation Models for Domain Generalized Semantic Segmentation
Zhixiang Wei*, Lin Chen*, Yi Jin*, Xiaoxiao Ma, Tianle Liu, Pengyang Ling, Ben Wang, Huaian Chen, Jinjin Zheng
CVPR, 2024
[paper] [code]

We propose the Rein framework, which efficiently fine-tunes vision foundation models for the domain generalized semantic segmentation (DGSS) task with just 1% trainable parameters, surprisingly surpassing full parameter fine-tuning. And Reins builds a new SOTA in various DGSS benchmarks.

freedrag FreeDrag: Point Tracking is Not What You Need for Interactive Point-based Image Editing
Pengyang Ling*, Lin Chen*, Pan Zhang, Huaian Chen, Yi Jin
CVPR, 2024
[project page] [paper] [demo] [code]

We propose a novel "drag" editing framework called FreeDrag free of the burden of erroneous point tracking and enables achieving stable point-based editing in challenging scenarios with similar structures, fine details, or under multi-point targets.

dtp Disentangle then Parse: Night-time Semantic Segmentation with Illumination Disentanglement
Zhixiang Wei*, Lin Chen*, Tao Tu, Huaian Chen, Pengyang Ling, Yi Jin
ICCV, 2023
[paper] [code]

We propose a novel nigh-time semantic segmentation paradigm, i.e., disentangle then parse (DTP), which explicitly disentangles night-time images into light-invariant reflectance and light-specific illumination components and then recognizes semantics based on their adaptive fusion.

ddb Deliberated Domain Bridging for Domain Adaptive Semantic Segmentation
Lin Chen*, Zhixiang Wei*, Xin Jin*, Huaian Chen, Miao Zheng, Kai Chen, Yi Jin
NeurIPS, 2022, Spotlight
[paper] [code]

We leverage the complementary characteristics of the coarse-wise and fine-wise data mixing techniques to progressively transfer the knowledge from the source to the target domain.
