COMPUTER VISION

Goes to Hollywood

As a long-time Hollywood fixture, Computer Vision (CV) has captured our imagination in movies from Metropolis to Wall-E. Though with recent advancements in AI and deep learning, some CV dreams have found their way into actual applications.

In this talk, AI Engineer Dr. Efstratios Tsougenis, helps separate fact from fiction, demonstrating how modern CV goes beyond tracking down human targets with extreme prejudice. He’ll showcase the state of the art in CV techniques, and illustrate how it benefits us in applications ranging from Facial Recognition, Crowd Movement Analysis, 3D Reconstruction to Virtual and Augmented Reality.
