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.

Stefanos and his team are in the Science Museum until 2 of July (Life Science, gallery, Who am I?). We are in the museum every day except for Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We are doing large scale collection of 4D sequences of faces in various expressions. The data collection is kindly sponsored by 3DMD. For more details visit our page.

Faces "in-the-wild" Workshop-Challenge

posted 25 Jan 2017, 01:42

We are organising the first Faces "in-the-wild" workshop-challenge in CVPR 2017. The workshop-challenge consist of two sessions. One on facial landmark localisation "in-the-wild" on arbitrary poses and one of affect analysis "in-the-wild. Please visit the workshop-challenges pages for more information. Papers are also solicited for our Faces "in-the-wild" workshop that touch upon all face analysis tasks from unconstrained images. Authors can submit their papers here.
