3D Pose Estimation and Modelling Human-Object Interaction

3D hand pose/shape estimation and the modeling of human/object interaction is a pathway to real-world interactive AR/VR applications such as Microsofts HoloLens and Facebooks Occulus Rift. The reason is that we interact with the world using our hands to use tools and to socialize with others.

Using machine learning to detect and predict changes of land use from aerial imagery

The ability to understand the evolution of land use (e.g. construction, change of land type) is crucial in fields such as urban planning, agriculture, natural resources management, and even autonomous flight. We will develop a Bayesian Recurrent Neural Network approach.

Electromagnetic tracking via Deep Learning

The goal of this project is to work on a new magnetic tracking system that combines our expertise in machine learning, haptics, and electromagnetic actuators. The outcome will be incorporated as one of the building blocks of a larger system we are working on that is oriented towards VR/AR haptics.
