IVC Seminar
Multi-Modal Visual Attention Capturing, Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination
Dr. Riad Hammoud
Thursday, April 30, 2015 at 3:30pm in MCS B29

Abstract: Estimation and dissemination of visual attention is useful in many application fields including human-machine interaction, forward collision warning systems/safe driving, inspection/surgery training and scene monitoring. Video/Audio among other sensing modalities are widely employed to capture raw sensing data (e.g., forward scene, eye/head images, verbal annotations). The first part of my talk focuses on low-level methods for video/signal data processing including eye-gaze estimation and moving objects (i.e., pedestrians, vehicles) detection from a moving vehicle. The second part highlights a higher level of data processing (a.k.a., exploitation) to generate semantic representations (i.e., eye dwelling/pattern, graphs of attributes). The third and final part of this talk discusses various multi-modal visual attention dissemination cases and data-association techniques, in practical applications including safe driving, webpage design, training, video indexing and retrieval.

Bio: Dr. Riad I. Hammoud holds a PhD in Computer Vision and Robotics from INRIA since February 2001. He developed several vision and perception systems for automotive, monitoring, geo-localization, robotics, assistive/eye-tracking and biometrics applications. He published numerous conference and journal papers, book chapters, Springer books and patents on object detection, overhead tracking, registration, face recognition, image classification, geo-localization, and data association and fusion. He serves as Principal Investigator, Algorithm/Team lead and Senior Principal Research Engineer on several R&D programs. He also serves as Associate Editor, Area Chair and technical program committee member of top computer vision conferences, workshops and transactions. In 2015 he organizes the 11th IEEE CVPR WS on Perception Beyond the Visible Spectrum and serves as Guest Editor of a special issue of Int'l Journal of Computer Vision (IJCV) on Large-Scale Media Geo-Localization.
