Colloquium Computer Science, Dr. Manuel Jesus Marin Jimenez (University of Cordoba)

10 June 2013

Date:                           Monday June 10th, 2013
Speaker:                     Dr.
Manuel J. Marín Jiménez University of Cordoba
Room:                         5161.0293 (Bernoulliborg)
Time:                          14.30



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 spatio-temporal local features.

The presented work has been developed in collaboration with N. Pérez de la Blanca, E. Yeguas, V. Ferrari and A. Zisserman.
