Research Projects

My research interests include the application of deep learning in computer vision. In particular I work on ambiguous aspects of scene understanding, such as generating occluded regions and semantic manipulation.

Layered Depth Prediction

Given a single image, we regress a specific data representation called Layered Depth Image (LDI), which contains information about the occluded regions in the reference frame and can fill in occlusion gaps in case of small view changes.

In Peeking Behind Objects, we separate the given scene in two layers, a foreground and a background, on a pipeline based on depth prediction and object inpainting. We show the applicability of this representation in view synthesis.

In the object-driven approach, we incorporate scene understanding to decompose the scene such that it is represented as object layers as well as a layout (background) layer. This makes the number of layers that describe a scene dependent on the complexity of the scene. Additionally, besides view synthesis, it enables object removal from the original image.

Scene Graphs

Scene graphs refer to a data representation that semantically describes a scene, composed of nodes (objects) as well as edges (relationships between objects). We propose using scene graphs for image manipulation as well as 3D scene understanding. Papers will be available soon.
