Welcome

The core expertise of the iBUG group is the machine analysis of human behaviour in space and time including face analysis, body gesture analysis, visual, audio, and multimodal analysis of human behaviour, and biometrics analysis. Application areas in which the group is working are face analysis, body gesture analysis, audio and visual human behaviour analysis, biometrics and behaviometrics, and HCI.

CVPR 2022: 3rd Workshop and Competition on Affective Behavior Analysis in-the-wild (ABAW)

posted 17 Jan 2022, 13:02

We are organizing a Workshop and a Competition at IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR), 2022The competition is split into 4 Challenges: i) valence-arousal estimation, ii) expression classification, iii) action units detection, iv) multi-task learning. The Competition is based on Aff-Wild2 that is annotated for all these behavior tasks. More details can be found here. The competition has started!
