London Computer Vision: Meet #4

Dr Stefan Leutenegger & Dr Iasonas Kokkinos

Wed 28th March @ One Alfred Place, WC1E 7EB

REgister

Londons largest computer vision meetup

LondonCV was formed in June 2017 by the merging of three separate networking groups 'London Computer Vision & Sensing', 'London Computer Vision & Pattern Recognition' and ‘London Image Processing’.

As an organising team our aim is to build London’s largest networking group in order to facilitate learning and sharing around the state-of-the-art in CV research and application. 

Initially we will be be organising one high-quality free networking event every second month - but more to come soon including the 'LondonCV Insiders'. Register below and watch this space.

Meet #4: Dr Stefan Leutenegger & Dr Iasonas Kokkinos

Dr Stefan Leutenegger - Lecturer in Robotics, Imperial; co-founder of SLAMCORE

Models and Learning for Real-Time Robotic Spatial Perception
Stefan’s track record is comprised of aerial robot design and autonomous operation, sparse and dense multi-sensor SLAM systems such as OKVIS and ElasticFusion, as well as joint geometric and semantic scene understanding.

Spatial perception is a core enabler of exciting mobile robotics application – from home robots to drones. Recent years have seen tremendous progress of Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) and 3D scene understanding, increasingly influenced by deep learning. Stefan will go through some of his research and applications in this exciting space.

Dr Iasonas Kokkinos - Senior lecturer, UCL; Research Scientist at Facebook AI Research

Talk title: DensePose: Dense Pose Estimation In The Wild Abstract: In this talk I will present recent work on establishing dense correspondences between 2D images and 3D surface models ``in the wild'', namely in the presence of background, occlusions, and multiple objects. I will start by describing DenseReg and DensePose, two recently introduced systems for this goal which operate at multiple frames per second on a single GPU. Time permitting I will cover more recent works on extending such techniques to unsupervised learning.

Iasonas Kokkinos is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science of University College London and  a Research Scientist  at Facebook AI Research (FAIR).  His research interests are at the intersection of  computer vision and deep learning, aiming at the development of models  that unify problems of structured prediction with deep learning, as well as  multi-task learning.  He publishes and reviews regularly in the major computer vision conferences (CVPR,ICCV,ECCV); he has served multiple times as Area Chair and has been Associate Editor for CVIU and IJVC.
