Chellappa Gives Invited Talk at UC Berkeley
Minta Martin Professor of Engineering Dr. Rama Chellappa (ECE/UMIACS/CS) gave an invited talk on April 21, 2010 at the University of California, Berkeley as part of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences Joint Colloquium Distinguished Lecture Series. His talk there, titled "Looking for Patterns in Videos," was supported by a McKay Visiting Professorship.
In his talk, Prof. Chellappa discussed general principles for designing robust video-based pattern recognition systems, citing examples of statistical techniques for video-based modeling and recognition of human actions using motion, shape and behavior as features. He also spoke about methods for addressing variations due to time warping and viewpoints for action recognition and unsupervised clustering of video sequences.
