Multimodal Perception and Learning for Activity Recognition and Human-Robot Interaction
In this talk we will briefly present ideas, research results and perspectives for multimodal perception and learning for human-robot interaction and communication as well as human activity recognition. Emphasis will be given on research problems and applied systems of computer vision, spatio-temporal audio-visual processing, multi-sensory information fusion, and machine learning. Integrated applications in physically and socially assistive robotics as well as in supporting mental health via wearable sensors.
