My research focuses on computing and understanding motion in the world from video. In generic scenes I study optical flow (the 2D image motion) and how it relates to physical properties of the world including 3D shape, material, illumination, and motion. I also develop new methods to capture natural, complex, human and animal motion for applications in computer vision, animation, and neuroscience.

Peter Vincent Gehler

Professor

I am a research group leader at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience and the Max Planck Instiute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen. Before, I was postdoctoral researcher at ETH Zurich, temporary Professor at TU Darmstadt, and Junior Research Group Leader at the MPI for Informatik. I did my PhD studies in the Empirical Inference group at the MPI for Biological Cybernetics. My main research focus lies on visual scene understanding. I want to enable computers to reason about the physical world around us. This requires models that can infer about the semantic, as well as the physical properties of visual data. I believe that both problems should be addressed jointly. I have broad interest in computer vision and machine learning topics with a focus on statistical models and inference techniques. Applications range from material and reflectance separation, to detection and pose estimation.

From January 2017 to July 2017 I am a master student in the BCI group. My master thesis will be about the development and evaluation of a revolutionary low cost BCI device which should in the future allow remote data acquisition all over the world. In September and October 2016 I was composing an essay with the topic "Barriers and Opportunities of user-centered BCI development - A review of current development and recommendations for further initiatives". Since April 2016 I am employed as a research assistant for data acquisition in the BCI group. My tasks include the conduction of EEG sessions with ALS patients.

I am doing a PhD in the field of machine learning and robotics. I work in the empirical inference department and my supervisor is Jan Peters. Our aim is to build reinforcement learning algorithms that can learn control policies for complex robotics tasks such as robot table tennis. For that we need to include as much prior knowledge as possible into our models, since experiments on the real robot are usually expensive. My interest are mostly in machine learning, reinforcement learning and Bayesian inference. But I also like algorithms and math, and before coming to the MPI I used to participate in competitions on these topics.

Perception is a fundamental part of intelligence since perception is necessary to acquire knowledge and knowledge is necessary to understand perception. Therefore computer vision is one of the most important aspects in the realization of intelligent systems. My interest of research lies in computer vision and the combination with machine learning which, to my mind, will enable the realization of intelligent systems. Currently, I am working on optical flow and how to incorporate high-level information to alleviate this ill-posed problem.

I coordinate our department's research trials. We collect data on human body shape and pose. This includes 3D and 4D body scans, face scans, anthropometric measurements, Motion Capture, and further (experimental) technologies. I recruit participants, schedule, manage appointments, create protocols of poses and movements and gain data according to our scientists' needs. Also, I process the data and take care of data security. Besides that, I am responsible for organising lab tours for visitors of our department.

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.

My name is Arash Mehrjou. My research lies at the intersection between machine learning, machine vision, and statistical learning theory under supervision of Prof. Dr. Bernhard Schölkopf. The ultimate goal is inferring the true model underlying the observed data. However, does a true model really exist? That seems a philosophical issue and it would be quite exciting to find mathematical basis for it.

Advisor: Andreas Geiger

Human brains can learn from data without an obvious supervision target and can afterwards use this knowledge in a variety of situations and even generate new content. On the other hand, the applicability of modern supervised machine learning algorithms is limited by the amount of available training data. Generative probabilistic models seem to provide a promising way to tackle this problem and in addition allow us to incorporate knowledge of the underlying process. My long term goal is to use such models to tackle ambiguities in 3D reconstruction due to non-Lambertian materials and to reason about global illumination.

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.
