Mobile Eye Tracking meets Egocentric Computer Vision

description

This seminar will explore the challenges of the emerging technology of wearable eye tracking and egocentric computer vision devices, such as Google Glass. In the first part of the seminar the organisers will give a brief overview of the field and introduce key methods and algorithms. The second part will consist of a project in which students will develop, implement and evaluate an example application. The organisers will assist participants in shaping and formulating project ideas, which will then be presented and discussed within the group. Based on the discussions and feedback these ideas will be prototyped and evaluated on datasets or in a user study, as appropriate. The seminar will conclude with a final presentation of the project outcomes and a project report.

prerequisites

The seminar is intended for Master students in Computer Science. Very good programming skills (C, C++, Python or Java) are required as a substantial part of the seminar will consist of implementing computer vision algorithms and developing demo applications, which will be graded as part of the project work. Previous experience and knowledge of computer vision and human-computer interaction is also highly recommended.
