Recent Advances in Human-centric Video Understanding, by Manuel-Jesus Marin-Jimenez

Thursday, March 20, 2014, 2:30 to 3:30 pm, room F107, INRIA Montbonnot

Seminar by Manuel-Jesus Marin-Jimenez, University of Cordoba, Spain


In this seminar I will present recent advances in the field of visual content analysis focused on people. In particular, we are interested in understanding videos containing people-to-people interaction. Firstly, we will approach a video retrieval task by detecting people looking  at each other. Then, we will focus on human interaction categorization by using audio-visual features. The presented work has been developed in collaboration with (alphabetically) M. Eichner, V. Ferrari, R. MuÒoz, N. PÈrez de la Blanca, E. Yeguas and A. Zisserman.
