"analyzing the behaviors of articulated objects in 3D : applications to human and animals"

Abstract: Recent advancement of depth cameras has opened door to many interesting applications. In this talk, I will discuss our research efforts toward addressing the related tasks of pose estimation, tracking, action and behavior analysis of a range of articulated objects including human and animals from such 3D cameras. In particular, I will talk about our recent Lie group based approach that enables us to tackle these problems under a unified framework. Looking forward, the results could be applied to everyday life scenarios such as natural user interface, behavior analysis and surveillance, gaming, among others.
