SEMINAR: Visual Object Tracking

Speaker: Erhan Gündoğdu

Title: Visual Object Tracking

Date/Time: December 12, 2018 / 13:40 - 14:30

Place: FENS L056

Abstract: In this seminar, I will talk about my recent research activities, namely, visual object tracking, deep learning for 3D cloth draping, infrared object recognition and deep feature embedding learning for fine-grained object recognition. I will mainly focus on visual object tracking problem which I worked on during my Ph.D. studies. As a secondary topic, I will mention my recent research activities about 3D cloth draping by deep learning. Finally, I will briefly summarise my other scientific activities towards the end of my talk.
