One highly promising direction for enabling flexible real-time on-device image editing is utilizing data distillation by leveraging large-scale text-to-image diffusion models, such as Stable Diffusion, to generate paired datasets used for training generative adversarial networks (GANs). This approach notably alleviates the stringent requirements typically imposed by high-end commercial GPUs for performing image editing with diffusion models. However, unlike text-to-image diffusion models, each distilled GAN is specialized for a specific image editing task, necessitating costly training efforts to obtain models for various concepts. In this work, we introduce and address a novel research direction: can the process of distilling GANs from diffusion models be made significantly more efficient? To achieve this goal, we propose a series of innovative techniques. First, we construct a base GAN model with generalized features, adaptable to different concepts through fine-tuning, eliminating the need for training from scratch. Second, we identify crucial layers within the base GAN model and employ Low-Rank Adaptation (LoRA) with a simple yet effective rank search process, rather than fine-tuning the entire base model. Third, we investigate the minimal amount of data necessary for fine-tuning, further reducing the overall training time. Extensive experiments show that we can efficiently empower GANs with the ability to perform real-time high-quality image editing on mobile devices with remarkable reduced training cost and storage for each concept.
Barcodes are used in many commercial applications, thus fast and robust reading is important. There are many different types of barcodes, some of them look similar while others are completely different. In this paper we introduce new fast and robust deep learning detector based on semantic segmentation approach. It is capable of detecting barcodes of any type simultaneously both in the document scans and in the wild by means of a single model. The detector achieves state-of-the-art results on the ArTe-Lab 1D Medium Barcode Dataset with detection rate 0.995. Moreover, developed detector can deal with more complicated object shapes like very long but narrow or very small barcodes. The proposed approach can also identify types of detected barcodes and performs at real-time speed on CPU environment being much faster than previous state-of-the-art approaches.
