2020 Looking at People Challenge FG Identity-preserved human detection
Computer Vision Center (UAB)
He obtained his Ph.D. degree in action recognition at the University of Barcelona (UB) in 2019. He is currently working on a multimodal fall detection project at Computer Vision Center (CVC), which is part of Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). He is also a member of the Human Pose Recovery and Behavior Analysis Group. He participated in the organization "Chalearn joint contest on multimedia challenges beyond visual analysis'' (ECCV16 and ICPR16), which included RGB-D gesture recognition and another track of personality traits recognition from short YouTube clips. His research interests include multimodality, action recognition, and sequential learning models.
