Abstract
AI is developing fast. However, most current AI research is still machine centric with limitations. Taking driverless car as an example, when the environment is noisy or less controlled, the driverless car could get stuck. For example, policemen give a gesture to let the car pull aside, it may have little feedback. Hence, the future objective should let AI behave safely and support goal-oriented activities, which allows for more seamless and intuitive human-machine interactions. This concerns an understanding of human activities, human-object interactions, and human-human relations. This talk introduces my recent efforts to develop holistic human-centric AI in terms of perception, sensing, and high-level reasoning.
