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.
Dr. Zhu, Hongyuan received his PHD from NTU, Singapore in 2015. He is currently a research scientist and principle investigator of the Agency of Science and Technology Research (ASTAR), Singapore. His research interests are computer vision, deep learning and their applications to real-world projects. He has published several papers in top-tiered computer vision conference CVPR/ICCV/IJCAI/BMVC/WACV and journals TIP/TiE/TMM. He also won the best paper award of ICCM2017 and top 10% paper award of ICIP2014 and travel grant of WACV and ICIP2014. He is currently a guest editor of IET Computer Vision and has served as the regular reviewer/PC for a series of computer vision and machine learning journals and conferences.
