(Jan 2018) App Innovation Contest A team of three students : Tang Yat Chung Human, Lau Oi Ling and Zhao Haiqi, from the Department of Computer Science was shortlisted (48 out of 138 teams) in App Innovation Contest by City University of Hong Kong. Under the supervision of Associate Professor Fu Hong, the team aims to develop an iOS App to evaluate children’s motor skills and improve their performance through training games.

(Jan 2018) Research Seminar-Temporal Action Localization in Untrimmed Videos

Date : 25 January 2018 (Thursday)
Time : 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm
Venue : M08

Ms. LI RUIMIN, Research Assistant, Department of Computer Science, Chu Hai College of Higher Education

Temporal action localization: given a long untrimmed video, when does a specific action start and end? This is a challenging topic because algorithms must reason not only about whether an action occurs somewhere in a video, but also on the temporal extent of when it occurs. This workshop will give an introduction of this topic. In addition, one representative paper (2016 CVPR) entitled “End-to-end Learning of Action Detection from Frame Glimpses in Videos” will be shared. This paper proposed a fully end-to-end approach for action detection in videos that learns to directly predict the temporal bounds of actions. The principle and content of this method will be explained in detail.
