Seminar of Vincent Lepetit (U. de Bordeaux, IUF)

Vincent Lepetit (full professor at the Université de Bordeaux and Institut Universiaire de France) is a leading expert in machine learning for computer vision mainly related to localization issue with application to (but not limited to)  augmented reality.

Prof. Lepetit will give a talk on *Friday Jan. 11th at 14:30* in Salle Aurigny.

Title: 3D Rigid and Articulated Object Registration for Robotics and Augmented Reality


I will present our approach to 3D registration of rigid and articulated objects from monocular color images or depth maps.  We first introduce a “holistic” approach that relies on a representation of a 3D pose suitable to Deep Networks and on  a feedback loop.  We also show how to tackle the domain gap between real images and synthetic images, in order to use synthetic images to train our models.  Finally, I will present our recent extension to deal with large partial occlusions.


Dr. Vincent Lepetit is a Full Professor at the LaBRIUniversity of Bordeaux, and an associate member of the Inria Manao team. He also supervizes a research group in Computer Vision for Augmented Reality at the Institute for Computer Graphics and VisionTU Graz.
He received the PhD degree in Computer Vision in 2001 from the University of Nancy, France, after working in the ISA INRIA team. He then joined the Virtual Reality Lab at EPFL as a post-doctoral fellow and became a founding member of the Computer Vision Laboratory. He became a Professor at TU Graz in February 2014, and at University of Bordeaux in January 2017.
His research is at the interface between Machine Learning and 3D Computer Vision, with application to 3D hand pose estimation, feature point detection and description, and 3D object or camera registration from images. In particular, he introduced with his colleagues methods such as Ferns, BRIEF, LINE-MOD, and DeepPrior for feature point matching and 3D object recognition.
He often serves as area chair and program committee member of major vision conferences (CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, ACCV, BMVC). He is an editor for the  International Journal of Computer Vision (IJCV) and the Computer Vision and Image Understanding (CVIU) journal.
