题目：Visual Domain Adaptation: Person Re-identification, Pose Estimation and Object Recognition
主讲人：阮邦志（P C Yuen）教授，香港浸会大学计算机科学系主任
时间：上午9:30am - 10:30am
It is well-known that the performance of a classifier/detector trained on one dataset will be degraded when applying on another dataset. It is called the dataset-bias problem. Domain adaptation has been proved to be an effective approach to solve the dataset-bias problem. In this talk, I will briefly review the basic principle of domain adaptation. Then, I will report our recent research works on three visual domain adaptation applications, namely person re-identification, pose estimation and object recognition.
P C Yuen received his B.Sc. degree in Electronic Engineering with First Class Honours in 1989 from City Polytechnic of Hong Kong, and his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in 1993 from The University of Hong Kong. He joined the Hong Kong Baptist University in 1993 and, currently is a Professor of the Department of Computer Science.
Dr. Yuen was a recipient of the University Fellowship to visit The University of Sydney in 1996. In 1998, Dr. Yuen spent a 6-month sabbatical leave in The University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS), University of Maryland at College Park. From June 2005 to January 2006, he was a visiting professor in INRIA Rhone Alpes, France. From July 2017 to January 2018, he was a visiting professor at ETH, Zurich, Switzerland. Dr. Yuen was the director of Croucher Advanced Study Institute (ASI) on biometric authentication in 2004 and the director of Croucher ASI on Biometric Security and Privacy in 2007. He was also the director of IAPR/IEEE Winter School on Biometrics 2017 and 2018.
Dr. Yuen has been actively involved in many international conferences and professional community. He was the track co-chair of the International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR) 2006, the program co-chair of the IEEE Fifth International Conference on Biometrics: Theory, Applications and Systems (BTAS) 2012 as well as the IEEE International Conference on Identity, Security and Behavior Analysis (ISBA) 2016. He serves as the Program co-chair of International Conference on Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence in 2018, and the 10th IEEE Workshop on Information Forensics and Security 2018. Currently, Dr. Yuen is the Vice President (Technical Activities) of the IEEE Biometrics Council, Editorial Board Member of Pattern Recognition, Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security, and Senior Editor of SPIE Journal of Electronic Imaging. He also serves as a Hong Kong Research Grant Council Engineering Panel Member.
Dr. Yuen's current research interests include video surveillance, human face recognition, biometric security and privacy.
