Neural Network Based 3D Skeletal Tracking on Azure Kinect
Microsoft has built a new RGB-D sensor, called Azure Kinect, and released Azure Kinect DK which is a developer kit and PC peripheral for computer vision and speech recognition models (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/kinect-dk/). In this talk, I’ll briefly introduce the hardware and describe in more detail about the Azure Kinect Body Tracking SDK which is a neural network based solution for the 3D skeletal tracking with the new RGB-D sensor.
Zicheng Liu is currently a principal research manager at Microsoft. His current research interests include human pose estimation and activity understanding. He received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Princeton University, a M.S. in Operational Research from the Institute of Applied Mathematics, Chinese Academy of Science, and a B.S. in Mathematics from Huazhong Normal University, China. Before joining Microsoft Research, he worked at Silicon Graphics as a member of technical staff and shipped OpenGL NURBS tessellator and OpenGL Optimizer. He co-authored three books: “Face Geometry and Appearance Modeling: concept and applications”, Cambridge University Press, “Human Action Recognition with Depth Cameras”, Springer Briefs, and “Human Action Analysis with Randomized Trees”, Springer Briefs. He was a technical co-chair of 2010 and 2014 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo, and a general co-chair of 2012 IEEE Visual Communication and Image Processing. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Visual Communication and Image Representation. He served as a Steering Committee member of IEEE Transactions on Multimedia. He was a distinguished lecturer of IEEE CAS from 2015-2016. He was the chair of IEEE CAS Multimedia Systems and Applications technical committee from 2015-2017. He is a fellow of IEEE.
