Prof. Ebroul Izquierdo (QMUL) visiting Prof. Thomas Sikora (TUB)
11.08.2013 - 16.08.2013
Internal Visits


The aim of this visit was to present recent MMV research activities in area of person/object recognition and foreground/background subtraction and explore possible opportunities for collaboration. Ebroul gave a presentation of MMV achievements in this area and initiated discussion on planned miniproject. Further discussions have been driven with focus on user requirements and ethical challenges in video analytics on real CCTV data. Ebroul presented all the methods studied in QMUL on robust foreground/background subtraction including some evaluation results of most effective approaches. He further presented proposed scalable solution to video surveillance application tackling high dimensional data, i.e. tens of thousands of pixels in the frame.  More applications or presented work have been discussed, including anonymisation, face recognition, and action recognition. Ebroul stressed importance of tacking real time performance and explained challenges to be tackled. TUB organised number of presentations from PhD students on similar topics, followed by tour around the lab. Ebroul had an opportunity to learn about TUB relevant activities and recent projects.
