The conference will be held in english.

Computer vision addresses the high-level understanding of visual content (images and videos), the main scientific challenge being the semantic gap between low-level input signals and semantic predictions. Machine Learning from large amounts of data has been a major driving force of the field in recent years. We will review the history of the field, the major scientific challenges, followed by an illustration of standard tools and problems. Several applications will be presented: gesture recognition, human pose estimation, mobile robotics, automatic identification of smartphone users. We will finish with links to neuro sciences and parallels between human or biological learning and machine learning.

Christian WOLF petit format v2

Christian WOLF is associate professor (Maître de Conférences, HDR) at INSA de Lyon and LIRIS, a CNRS laboratory, since Sept-2005. He is interested in machine learning and computer vision, especially the visual analysis of complex scenes in motion. His work puts an emphasis on modelling complex interactions of a large number of variables: deep learning, structured models, and graphical models. Since Sept-2017 he is partially on leave at the chroma work group and the CITI Laboratory, where he is interested in the connections between machine learning and control. He received his MSc in computer science from TU Vienna, Austria, in 2000, and a PhD in computer science from INSA de Lyon, France, in 2003.
