Lab Animal Motion Capture: Talk delivered via Zoom

11:00am-12:00pm, Apr 3, 2020

Zoom (details below)
Helge Rhodin, UBC computer sciences

Helge Rhodin recently ventured into motion capture for lab animals [e.g., DeepFly3D]. It poses hard computer vision challenges and promises huge impacts in neuroscience and other life science research via automation. He will give an overview of the state-of-the-art motion capture methods and outline our contributions, including the capture of animal motion and its unsupervised clustering into behavior classes. He hopes to trigger a discussion on how DeepLabCut and similar approaches are currently used and what toolset you would like to see in the future.

Helge Rhodin is an Assistant Professor at UBC, associated with the computer vision and graphics labs. Prior to that, he was a lecturer at EPFL and postdoctoral researcher in Pascal Fua's CVLab. His research interests range from computer graphics and augmented reality, over 3D computer vision, to machine learning. Helge received the BSc and MSc degree in Computer science from Saarland University, respectively supervised by Philipp Slusallek and Sebastian Hack, and Michael Breuß and Joachim Weickert.  He graduated with a PhD in 2016, with his thesis on Motion Capture for Interactive Virtual Worlds, mentored by Christian Theobalt and Hans-Peter Seidel at the Max-Planck Institute for Informatics.
