My research concerns learning models of perception and production of non-verbal communicative behavior. Such models can be used to create richer human-robot and human-avatar interaction, for medical diagnosis systems, and for contextual synthesis of different kinds of human behaviors, e.g., guiding synthesis of hand motion from body motion.

How can autonomous perception discover high-dimensional patterns in recorded data from our environment? I am approaching this question by working on structured computer vision tasks, such as Human Pose Estimation. I hope that insights from this area will improve our data analysis systems, so that they can assist us in better understanding our environment.

I am working as a student assistant within the AirCap (Aerial outdoor motion capture) project. The project goal is developing a 3D shape and motion capture system in outdoor scenarios using multiple co-operative UAVs. Possible applications of this system are autonomous search and rescue robot teams and autonomous systems for crowd supervision. My duties include integrating sensors into the current distributed system and taking care of software and hardware repositories. Currently, I am taking part in the design and implementation of a controller module for the Blimp, which should be integrated in the current UAV system.

Are there people out there? How do they move? What is their body shape? What are they wearing? For machines to interact with humans and the physical world, we need to train them to answer these questions. My research is focused on combining ideas from computer vision and machine learning to enable machines to perceive humans. During my Ph.D. I worked mostly on geometric modelling and articulated tracking from images.

My research focus is body representation. I am interested in basic theoretical frameworks and mechanisms, but also in disturbed body representation. To this end, I conduct behavioral studies in patients with eating disorders or obesity, but also in healthy people.

My research interests are in motion estimation and scene understanding. In particular I'm interested in exploring and modeling how the semantics and the motion of the scene are related.

My goal is to apply statistical human body models in various research domains such as psychology, cognitive science, and medicine. A primary goal is to make our body software accessible to more people. For this purpose I interact with various research groups who need body data and software for doing experiments. I manage these relationships, and support the transfer of body shapes as needed.

Anne Thaler

Ph.D. Student, MPI for Biological Cybernetics

Advisor: Betty Mohler

The goal of my research is to understand visual factors that contribute to one’s representation of the physical body. I am using the novel technology of biometric-based avatars provided by the MPI for Intelligent Systems to study mechanisms related to body representations in healthy people and its distortions in eating and weight disordered individuals.

Silvia Zuffi

Research Scientist, MATI-CNR, Institute for Applied Mathematics and Information Technologies, Milan Italy

My current research focuses on representing the appearance of people in images and video sequences. I am particularly interested in 2D and 3D models that capture the variability in shape of articulated and deformable objects like the human body. Previous work focused on color image reproduction, multispectral color imaging, readability of colored text.
