New Frontiers Seminar Series (NFSS), Thursday, September 27th, 2012

All faculty and students are invited to attend the first New Frontiers Seminar Series lecture of the Fall, 2012!  Our very own Professor David Fleet, Chair of UTSC’s Department of Computer & Mathematical  Sciences will kick off this year’s series with his talk entitled “Looking at People: Tracking and Understanding”.

Time: noon-1pm

Location:  AA160

 

ABSTRACT: Future computer vision systems will spend a lot of time looking at people and interpreting their activities from digital video. Detecting and understanding people is considered by many to be a key enabling technology for a myriad of potential applications, including smart mobile devices, surveillance, and man-machine interfaces. This talk will outline recent research on modeling human pose and motion to help constrain video analysis. Professor Fleet will outline the problem of pose and motion estimation, and recent advances in modeling human motion based on kinematic data, physics-based constraints, and bio-mechanical considerations.

This seminar is a great way to learn about exciting research that is taking place at UTSC!  

The New Frontiers Seminar Series is organized by the Graduate Students' Association at Scarborough (GSAS). This talk is supported by the Office of the Vice-Principal, Research.
