Understanding Activity with Visual Processing

Understanding Activity with Visual Processing


  • Brendan Morris, The University of Nevada, Las Vegas
August 17, 2017 - 2:30pm to 3:30pm


This talk introduces research conducted in the Real-Time Intelligent Systems (RTIS) Laboratory at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The RTIS Laboratory is primarily engaged in research in computationally efficient computer vision for observing, learning, and understanding the environment and activity in video. The emphasis is to design real-time intelligence that can operate continuously and robustly through all operating modes. Various projects will be highlighted:

·Intelligent transportation systems for pedestrian safety and environmental monitoring

·Advanced driver assistance system for driver intent prediction

·Deep-learning frameworks to assess the quality of an activity

·Computer vision applications to enable more effective science

Additional Information
