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.

FG-2020 Competition: Affective Behavior Analysis in-the-wild Challenge

posted 24 Nov 2019, 22:09

We are organizing a Competition at IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition (FG) 2020. This competition is split into 3 Challenges-Tracks: i) valence-arousal estimation, ii) 7 basic expression classification, iii) 8 action units detection. The Competition is for the first time based on one database annotated for all these behavior tasks. More details can be found here. The competition has started!
