Performing low hertz labeling for surgical videos at intervals can greatly releases the burden of surgeons. In this paper, we study the semi-supervised instrument segmentation from robotic surgical videos with sparse annotations. Unlike most previous methods using unlabeled frames individually, we propose a dual motion based method to wisely learn motion flows for segmentation enhancement by leveraging temporal dynamics. We firstly design a flow predictor to derive the motion for jointly propagating the frame-label pairs given the current labeled frame. Considering the fast instrument motion, we further introduce a flow compensator to estimate intermediate motion within continuous frames, with a novel cycle learning strategy. By exploiting generated data pairs, our framework can recover and even enhance temporal consistency of training sequences to benefit segmentation. We validate our

The ability to understand and engineer molecular structures relies on having accurate descriptions of the energy as a function of atomic coordinates. Here we outline a new paradigm for deriving energy functions of hyperdimensional molecular systems, which involves generating data for low-dimensional systems in virtual reality (VR) to then efficiently train atomic neural networks (ANNs). This generates high quality data for specific areas of interest within the hyperdimensional space that characterizes a molecule's potential energy surface (PES). We demonstrate the utility of this approach by gathering data within VR to train ANNs on chemical reactions involving fewer than 8 heavy atoms. This strategy enables us to predict the energies of much higher-dimensional systems, e.g. containing nearly 100 atoms. Training on datasets containing only 15K geometries, this approach generates mean absolute
