Talk Overview

Title: Beyond People Detection: GANs and iterative networks working on human data.

Abstract: Computer Vision with CNNs performs well for people detection. This is not enough. A step forward can be taken to understand the aspect of people detected in low resolution, or corrupted by occlusions in the crowd; to track them in the wild; to detect saliency and pay attention to details only; to forecast motion and human actions. The next solutions will be provided by new neural architectures based on autoencoders and recurrent architectures, such as Generative Adversarial Networks and Long Short Term Memories. The talk will present projects and results carried out at Imagelab University of Modena and Reggio Emilia on people aspect classification, tracking and saliency analysis based on what people see.
