SSE Weekly Colloquium |Visual Computing on Campus
Vision is our dominant sense, and visual computing is one of the most active fields in artificial intelligence research. In this talk, I will introduce you to the various visual computing concepts, and show you some of our latest progress in the field, especially the applications to improve our campus life at CUHKSZ. These include: first, an intelligent video editing system that can automatically generate video lectures from multiple video sources to improve your online learning experience; second, a live virtual touring system that allows you to visit our campus in real time through others’ eyes but at your own free will; and finally, a set of technologies deployed in the autonomous driving cars cruising through our campus.
