Title:Face and People Identification
Date: Monday 1st Sept, 2014
Time: 3-4pm
Place: Informatics Teaching Lab (ITL) — Top floor meeting room
Speaker: Professor Stan Li, National Lab of Pattern Recognition, Chinese Academy of Sciences

Abstract: Face and people (pedestrian) identification has wide
applications in security, the Internet and beyond where people’s
identity is concerned. Recent progress in visual pattern recognition and
machine learning has advanced the technologies and made it possible for
practical applications. This talk will describe related work at the CAS
NLPR in advancing world leading algorithms, systems and practical
applications in the area.
