Human Centered Vision and Applications
Wednesday December 12, 11:00 - 12:15 | Ada Lovelace Auditorium, IST Dept.
In this talk, we will first quickly review the impact of Deep Learning on Computer Vision, with baseline architectures on Object Recognition, Detection and Segmentation. Next, we will introduce applications that motivate human centered vision tasks such as Face recognition, Facial expression recognition, Facial Landmarks, Head pose, Body Joint location estimation, Action and Gesture recognition. Applications include Skill Assessment and Feedback, Human Agent Interaction, Surveillance and Sign Language Recognition and Synthesis.
