Title:Seeing the Unseen - From Micro-Expressions to Micro-Poses

Speaker:Dr. Xiaobai Li, Hundred Talents Professor, School of Cyberspace Security, Zhejiang University, Ph.D. Supervisor

Affiliation:Zhejiang University

Time:9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

Venue:Room 5, Ground Floor, Jade Science and Education Building A

Lecture Abstract:

Human behavior is complex, especially in adults. In everyday social situations, most people control and conceal true emotions due to social etiquette, specific motivations, etc. In machine vision research, traditional emotion recognition models based on explicit or even performed facial expressions and body movements have limited effectiveness in real interactive scenarios. We believe that facial micro-expressions and body micro-poses can more accurately reflect a person's true internal emotions. This presentation will introduce the progress of our research in the areas of micro-expressions and micro-poses, including datasets, algorithms, and current challenges.
