Multi-modal RGB-D scene understanding
Commodity RGB-D sensors such as Microsoft Kinect have received significant attention in the recent years due to their low cost and the ability to capture synchronized color images and depth maps in real time. Although the available depth information has been proven to be extremely useful for many visual computing problems, there are still challenges remaining on finding the best way to harness the low-resolution, noisy and unstable depth data and to complement the existing methods using RGB data alone. In this talk, I will show you a series of works from my group on using unsupervised feature learning for scene labeling, using deep learning technology for RGB-D object recognition and using multi-modal feature learning for scene classification.
