NAVER LABS Europe
Participant : Karteek Alahari.
This collaboration started when NAVER LABS Europe was Xerox Research Centre Europe, and has been on-going since October 2009 with two co-supervised CIFRE scholarships (2009–2012, 2011-2014). Starting June 2014 we signed a third collaborative agreement for a duration of three years. The goal is to develop approaches for deep learning based image description and pose estimation in videos. Jakob Verbeek and Diane Larlus (XRCE) jointly supervise a PhD-level intern for a period of 6 months in 2016-2017. XRCE then became Naver in 2017. A one-year research contract on action recognition in videos started in Sep 2017. The approach developed by Vasileios Choutas implements pose-based motion features, which are shown to be complementary to state-of-the-art I3D features. Nieves Crasto's internship in 2018 was jointly supervised by Philippe Weinzaepfel (NAVER LABS), Karteek Alahari and Cordelia Schmid. A new CIFRE PhD contract was submitted to ANRT for approval in October 2019.
