OPPO’s Multiple Research Achievements Shortlisted for Global Top AI Conference CVPR 2024, Continuously Consolidating AI Phone Technology

The prestigious CVPR (Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition), a leading global event in computer vision, officially commenced in Seattle. This year, OPPO made a significant impact with several of its latest research papers being selected for presentation, encompassing a range of AI-related topics. Moreover, OPPO’s flagship AI phone, the Find X7 Ultra, and the newly launched OPPO Reno12 were demoed at the conference, showcasing numerous innovative AI phone features. Through these contributions, OPPO continues to influence the global advancement and democratization of AI phone.

“OPPO is deeply engaged in the CVPR each year, and this year, our achievements are particularly noteworthy,” stated Billy Zhang, President of Overseas MKT, Sales and Service at OPPO. “AI has always been a pivotal area of investment for us, and the rising trend of AI phone enables us to innovate the user experience once again. CVPR provides an excellent platform for OPPO to discuss and exchange ideas with global partners about our latest advancements in computer vision and other AI-related fields. Our involvement in CVPR also underscores OPPO’s strong commitment and determination in the realm of AI phone.”

With Major Papers Selected for Conference, OPPO AI Research is Flourishing

This year, OPPO Research Institute and various R&D teams achieved significant recognition with 11 papers selected for presentation at CVPR. These papers span key research areas including image restoration, digital human generation, video segmentation, dynamic motion capture, dynamic scene image synthesis, multi-view 3D object detection, and 3D rendering, highlighting some of the most innovative directions in AI phone.

In the field of digital human generation, OPPO has introduced a groundbreaking approach with UltrAvatar—a method for creating drivable 3D virtual humans. Utilizing a diffuse color extraction model and an authenticity-guided texture diffusion model, UltrAvatar can generate drivable 3D virtual humans from a single image or a line of text. These virtual humans are indistinguishable from real human features, achieving a level of detail that captures every inch of skin color and texture on a person’s face, significantly enhancing the realism of virtual interactions.

Another notable contribution, the UniVS, presents the industry’s first universal large model for video segmentation. This model is uniquely capable of meeting diverse real-world video segmentation needs, allowing for the segmentation of all objects within a specified category and responding to textual descriptions for targeted segmentation.

These selected papers not only represent cutting-edge advancements in AI but also position OPPO as a leader propelling the mobile industry into the AI-driven era.

Additionally, the CVPR 2024 NTIRE RAIM (Restore Any Image Model) challenge, co-organized by OPPO Research Institute’s Y-Lab and the Visual Computing Laboratory at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, was a resounding success. This challenge encouraged researchers to address real-world industrial challenges, develop methods for accurate high-quality image restoration, and promote the application of these technologies in industry. The NTIRE RAIM challenge attracted participation from over 200 teams globally. And finally, Team MiAlgo’s research emerged as the winner, clinching first place in the competition.

Going forward, OPPO will robustly support the AI developer ecosystem, fostering close academia-industry collaboration to bridge the two.

Find X7 Ultra Debuts at CVPR, Sparking Interest in AI Phone Innovation

OPPO’s flagship AI phone, the Find X7 Ultra, made a remarkable debut, quickly becoming a highlight of the event. Additionally, Liang Jie, the senior imaging algorithm engineer at OPPO Research Institute’s Y-Lab, was invited to present a report on OPPO’s imaging technology at the conference. The powerful AI imaging capabilities of the Find X7 Ultra and OPPO’s innovative generative AI applications captivated both the academic and industrial AI communities.

This year signifies OPPO’s official foray into the AI phone era, with the Find X7 Ultra emerging as the most advanced AI phone from OPPO to date. It boasts the OPPO HyperTone Image Engine, the most sophisticated computational photography system currently on the market. This engine enables OPPO Find X7 Ultra to produce exceptional photos with minimal computational footprint, turning every shot into a masterpiece.

The OPPO AI Eraser feature, launched alongside the Find X7 Ultra, showcased to CVPR attendees OPPO’s ability to seamlessly integrate AI technology into consumer devices for user-friendly experiences. The OPPO AI Eraser allows users to easily remove unwanted elements from an image and generate replacement content with a single click. Since its introduction, this feature has revolutionized photo editing, averaging 15 uses per day per user, making it one of the most popular features.

OPPO also showcased several exploratory features through real device demos at CVPR, highlighting the future direction of OPPO’s AI technologies. Among these was the Style Transfer Demo, which utilizes the ShaderNN lightweight deep learning architecture. ShaderNN represents the first inference engine supporting the full graphics stack (OpenGL & Vulkan) for real-time mobile graphics and imaging applications, showcasing OPPO’s strengths in on-device generative graphics AI processing.

Solidifying Foundations, Continuously Promoting the Democratization of AI Phone

At the beginning of the year, OPPO strategically established OPPO AI Center, directing company resources towards enhancing AI capabilities. This initiative has not only integrated and strengthened OPPO’s research across various AI fields but also aimed to deliver the ultimate AI phone experience. It has bolstered OPPO’s technical foundation in the AI phone sector and showcased impressive research outcomes at this year’s CVPR.

This year’s CVPR also marks OPPO’s continued presence at top international AI conferences, following the participation at events such as MWC, Google Cloud Next ’24, and Microsoft Build. OPPO is actively collaborating with global partners to advance the development of AI phones.

In early June, OPPO officially announced its strategy to make AI phones accessible to everyone, targeting the equipping of approximately 50 million OPPO smartphones with generative AI features by year’s end, spanning all OPPO’s smartphone product lines. This move underscores OPPO’s long-term commitment and strategic determination to enhance AI integration in smartphones.

Looking forward, the innovative research outcomes from OPPO, combined with advanced technologies from partners like Google, Microsoft and MediaTek, will further propel OPPO’s mission to spearhead a global movement in the democratization of AI phone.

Grab launches Advance Booking, eases airport transport for PH travelers with guaranteed on-time rides

Hitting the road whether for leisure travel across the Philippines or sealing business deals overseas can be a daunting endeavor. The pre-travel stress between the epic suitcase shuffle and the documents paranoia can be too much to handle – and this is even without considering the challenge of getting to the airport on time or arranging transportation.

Understanding this dilemma, Grab – the partner of every Filipino for safe, convenient, and reliable mobility – launches its latest transportation service Advance Booking. Grab Advance Booking guarantees on-time rides to the airport via the GrabAirport fleet, ticking off yet another item on the travelers’ checklist.

Grab Philippines Head of Mobility EJ Dela Vega shares, “Having served the Philippines for over a decade, we at Grab have deepened our understanding of the distinct needs of our Filipino passengers. One such need that stands out is their requirement for reliable airport transportation. Recognizing this, we are enhancing the experience of airport rides on Grab with the launch of Advance Booking. Our new Grab Advance Booking product goes beyond offering mere airport transfers – it provides travelers the peace of mind they deserve. This new service has been engineered to have guaranteed on-time rides every time, enabling every Filipino traveler to leave their homes with the confidence they’ll have a ride to make their flight on time.”

Grab Advance Booking: Guaranteed On-Time Rides, Every Time

The worries about catching a flight in the wee hours of the morning or during the peak of the metro bustle are a thing of the past with Grab Advance Booking. This new Grab mobility service touts guaranteed rides every time.

  • Plan as early as 7 Days ahead: With Grab’s Advance Booking feature, passengers can effortlessly plan their journeys well in advance. The reservation window is flexible, allowing bookings to be made as early as seven days or as late as two hours before the scheduled ride.
  • Stay Stress-free with On-Time Pick-up Assurance: The Grab Advance Booking driver-partners are guaranteed to be on time. In instances of service disruption, the Grab platform swiftly and seamlessly reassigns the ride to an alternative driver-partner, ensuring a successful completion of the trip for the passenger. To ensure fairness, a Php-100 courtesy credit will be offered to passengers if the driver arrives late for a pre-scheduled ride.
  • No need to panic with extended wait time: Further enhancing passenger convenience, a 15-minute grace period is implemented for Advance Booking rides. This allows drivers to accommodate minor delays, while passengers encountering unforeseen circumstances have additional time to reach the pick-up location.

Booking in a Breeze

Accessing Grab Advance Booking is a walk in the park. Passengers can select  “Advance Booking” under the Grab transport page. They can then enter the date and time of their ride, along with their pick-up location and the specific airport terminal for drop-off.

Advance Booking passengers will also be receiving regular updates and reminders about the status of their ride leading to the scheduled pick-up time. 45 minutes prior to the scheduled trip, passengers can already chat and check in with their assigned driver in-app.

As safety and convenience remain paramount for Grab, Advance Booking rides can only accommodate a maximum of three passengers with three pieces of luggage.

Safeguarding our Driver-Partners

Grab has also implemented protective measures to safeguard the income of the dedicated fleet for Advance Booking. These measures are designed to mitigate the impact of last-minute cancellations by passengers, specifically those made less than an hour before the scheduled pick-up time. During such cancellations, the passenger will be charged the full fare of the ride. The same policy applies when a passenger is unreachable or hasn’t arrived 15 minutes past the scheduled time.

However, there will be no charge for any passenger cancellation done at least one hour before the scheduled pick-up time,

A worry-free airport transfer

The Grab Advance Booking eases the overall experience of leisure and business travelers going to the airport, allowing them to relax as they begin their trip. This new service from Grab is currently exclusive to trips going to Metro Manila airports via its GrabAirport fleet, which was launched last year in conjunction with the MIAA. Its availability in cities and regions outside of the National Capital Region is expected to transpire in the second half of 2024.

Kenny Rogers Roasters’ 3rd Farmvocacy Program offers support to schools through Urban Farmers PH

Food becomes even more enjoyable and meaningful when it’s prepared with compassion and support for others. This is the aim of Kenny Rogers Roasters as it held its third Farmvocacy Program. Rooted on its message, “Eat Healthy, Help Greatly,” the program fosters a farm-to-table approach where every purchase of Kenny Rogers Roasters’ selected menu item provides support to local farmers.

On its third year, the program selected its well-loved Chimichurri Roast, whose ingredients are sourced locally, as the featured dish. Early this year, customers who ordered the Chimichurri Roast Solo Plate, through dine-in, takeout or delivery, also helped Kenny Rogers support Urban Farmers PH – an organization that nurtures unused public spaces, inviting people to discover that farming is enjoyable, doable, and transferrable. For every purchase of Chimichurri Roast, a portion was donated to Urban Farmers PH.

Through the Farmvocacy Program, the roast chicken restaurant chain has accumulated a total of P300,000. The proceeds donated to Urban Farmers PH were used to support the Taguig Integrated School and Barrio Obrero Elementary School, providing essential resources for their plant beds, seedling nurseries, and technical training in urban farming. Through these initiatives, Urban Farmers PH is instilling the value and appreciation for agriculture among young urban dwellers while fostering healthy eating.

This support aims to further strengthen the momentum of urban farming in the Philippines. Even with challenges like limited space and access to resources, the program helped urban farming in the country thrive, offering a promising means for sustainable urban development and improved food access.

Kenny Rogers Roasters’ dedication to helping local farmers through the Farmvocacy Program shows its commitment to support local communities and to help improve food security while pushing for environmental sustainability, community resilience, and economic development.

So far, the Farmvocacy Program has already provided support to various local farming organizations, most recently with Samahang Magmamanga ng Zambales Inc.

[Day 1] Marie France experience: Burning 2000 calories

This year I just turned 31, I can say there has been a major shift when it comes to perspective. Cliche’ as it sounds, I would always say “Love yourself”.  I realized, I haven’t really grasp yet the true meaning of loving yourself, but that’s okay  it’s an everyday process and yes, there are days.

Now that I’m in my 30s, the meaning of “loving yourself”  this time is putting myself first with boundaries. 

They say It’s the inside what always counts but it has to resonate also in the outside too. One of the things I have to work on is my physique. I did gain over the pandemic. That is completely okay, again. I have completely accepted that I am on the bigger side but turning 30 really made me want to prioritize my health first and working on my nutrition. I don’t have to be the perfect standard, just right for me to maintain in the long run.

It’s been almost 4 years and we are back to normal. I ditched my old gym-rat life to a working girlie life since 2020. I try to still try workout like walking, pilates, swimming and boxing atleast 2-3 a week but not as intense as before. There is always gonna be a phase, now I just want to be effortless and slow  (this mindset of mine, comes with age).

My Marie France Journey

I visited the nearest Marie France branch closest to me which is at Tomas Morato. Every day 1 starts with a consultation ofcourse. Also, be prepared there will be physical assessment.

During my consultation, goals were discussed as well. Then for overall the treatments for me were:

  1. Plasti Dermi treatment (PDT)
  2. Physique
  3.  Fat Mobilization (FMS) elite

 Note: Each of us will have different assessment. 

Not only treatments, nutrition was also included in the discussion. As we nutrition plays a vital role in losing weight. Hopefully in the coming days I get to have a session. Yes, Marie France can arrange this. (That will be for a separate blog.) 

I was brought to their private rooms. The vibe was very relaxing and they have a cabinet, to keep your valuables and a mirror.  They will provide a robe and for the girls you may wear your bra and underwear during the treatment. Note: The treatment I had targets the whole body

The staff were very friendly and accommodating as well. The assigned staff to you will explain the procedure and will advise of the Dos and Don’ts. Like you can’t drink hot water after 30 minutes of your last session and more of cold drinks. You can eat after an hour and shower after 2 hours. If I miss anything the staff will surely remind 🙂

The procedures mentioned during my assessment would take almost 2 hours and I get to burn atleast 2000 calories. Note: Even the next day you are still burning calories.

Here are my experiences:

Plasti Dermi Treatment (PDT)

This treatment from what I understand, helps breakdown fats. They used a vacuum suction for this procedure.

Is it painful? This one depends on your tolerance, I was playing around level 1 and 2. The suction part is what you call “nakakagulat” or shocking. There are times I was laughing or giggling too, as ticklish person.  Overall I was able to manage. Most clients prefer to do this first. They say if you manage the PDT, you’ll do fine with the rest.


This is more of toning and it’s like you have done 225 sit ups. There are panels placed around my body. Note: The panels and straps are wet it helps with the machine.

Is it painful? Personally for me no. The vibrations comes in patterns btw!

Fat Mobilization System (FMS) Elite

This is how it feels like to live in a freezer. At first you’ll be adjusting to the cold but as time goes by you’ll get used to it 🙂 It’s actually relaxing!

Basically, as you body gets exposed to coldness that’s when your body looks for heat and that is where the fat burning process goes.

Is it painful? No. You’re freezing hahaha


Overall, would I come back? Ofcourse! I would be documenting my journey more in detail with the progress since it’s just day 1 and hope to help other girls/boys. Which I noticed my treatment reviews have a lot of comments.  Prayers and hopefully I be consistent too.

In terms of price rates you may head over to their website and they have packages too (to my surprise, it is affordable for a working girlie/guy). Schedule an appointment now!







Calling all Sensitive Skin Girlies! Aveeno Skin Relief Lotion is your 20-Second Solution for Sensitive Skin

Aveeno Skin Relief Lotion soothes in the quickest time, so you don’t miss any summer fun


Aveeno brand ambassadors Vince Velasco (left) and Sam Corrales (middle) together with Ira Santos, Aveeno marketing manager (right) at Play Padel PH for the Aveeno Active Summer Fest

We’re at the tail-end of summer, and while it’s a season for fun and adventure, it can be a challenging time for those with sensitive skin. Heat, sweat, and humidity can be relentless triggers among others, causing many to shy away from their favorite activities. But people with sensitive skin need not worry anymore—your favorite Aveeno Skin Relief presents its quickest solution-to-date. Aveeno Skin Relief Lotion now soothes sensitive skin in as fast as 20 seconds, through clinically proven oat science.

Harnessing the power of oats, Aveeno Skin Relief Lotion has been a trusted solution for those with sensitive skin. Its Triple Oat Complex, a unique blend of oat flour, oat extract, and oat oil, works to strengthen the skin barrier and support natural ceramide production, soothing and providing relief for dry, itchy, and sensitive skin. Complementing this, Aveeno Skin Relief Body Wash gently cleanses while locking in moisture for up to 24 hours. This innovative breakthrough, supported by ongoing research, was celebrated at the Aveeno Active Summer Fest, an event brimming with fun, educational activities, and vibrant summer energy.

Aveeno, together with St. Joseph Drug, first took over the shores of San Juan, La Union last May 23-26 and brought the larger-than-life Aveeno installation to attract beachgoers. Sampling initiatives were done to introduce the Aveeno Skin Relief range to a wider audience. Visitors who took photos at the booth and posted them on their socials received free samplers, allowing them to experience firsthand the soothing benefits of Aveeno products.

Aveeno’s booth was set up last May 23-26 at FatWave Surf Resort, San Juan, La Union

The event also featured a life-sized shower for people to try the Aveeno Skin Relief Body Wash and Lotion right at the beach. This unique setup provided an immersive experience, showcasing how Aveeno’s products cleanse and lock in moisture effectively. Additionally, there was a selling component in partnership with St. Joseph Drug, offering a special promo to beachgoers.

Following that, the Aveeno Active Summer Fest was held last June 5 and was an action-packed day that brought together skincare education and the active lifestyle. Attendees enjoyed an energetic padel session in the morning and interactive activities throughout the afternoon that highlighted how Aveeno Skin Relief Lotion can help maintain healthy skin even during the summer season. Guests left with a better understanding of how to care for their sensitive skin while staying active and enjoying the summertime.

Aveeno brand ambassadors Vince Velasco (left) and Sam Corrales (right) together with Ira Santos, Aveeno marketing manager (middle).

Vince Velasco, Aveeno’s brand ambassador, enthusiastically shared, “Summer is my favorite time of year, but my sensitive skin and eczema used to hold me back. But as someone who has been using Aveeno Skin Relief Wash and Lotion as a regimen for the longest time, I never had to worry about my sensitive skin and even my eczema flaring up and truly enjoyed my summers. The new 20-second soothing claim of the Skin Relief Lotion is amazing and makes it even easier to enjoy the season.”

Sam Corrales, another passionate Aveeno ambassador, added, “I personally am always on the move, whether it’s me doing my workouts, teaching classes, doing my hosting gigs. My skin is always subjected to sweat and to the heat which have been some of the triggers to my sensitive skin. I’m so happy to know that Aveeno Skin Relief Lotion can now soothe my sensitive skin quicker than ever– now in just 20 seconds. This just goes to show how committed Aveeno is to help us all enjoy life without the limitations of sensitive skin.”

Ira Santos, Marketing Manager for Aveeno, explained, “We know that summer can be tough for those with sensitive skin, but we want everyone to enjoy the season without hesitation. The Aveeno Active Summer Fest was all about showing that you can stay active and have fun while keeping your skin healthy. Our new claim for the Aveeno Skin Relief Lotion, validated by extensive research, reassures our customers that they can trust in quick and effective relief– now in as fast as 20 seconds. This remarkable improvement from our previous claim of 60 seconds demonstrates our commitment to delivering swift and effective solutions for our customers’ skin needs.”
