Lourdes Agapito Inaugural Lecture "Capturing vivid 3D models of the world from video"

Location

1.02 LT Malet Place | Engineering Building (link Map)
Malet Place | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Admission: Free
Ticketing: Ticketed

As humans we take the ability to perceive the dynamic world around us in three dimensions for granted. From an early age we can grasp an object by adapting our fingers to its 3D shape; we can understand our mother’s feelings by interpreting her facial expressions; or we can effortlessly navigate through a busy street. In this lecture she will show progress from her early systems which captured sparse 3D models with primitive representations of deformation towards our most recent algorithms which can capture every fold and detail of hands, faces and clothes in 3D using as input video sequences taken with a single consumer camera. There is now great short-term potential for commercial uptake of this technology, and Lourdes will show applications to robotics, augmented and virtual reality and minimally invasive surgery.
