Current project

Deep Insight - Human pose estimation and activity recognition in video

Developing new Deep Learning based methods for solving crimes from video

At the University of Cambridge I work with Prof. Roberto Cipolla on a new exciting project called "Deep Insight" sponsored by SeeQuestor. We are developing new Deep Learning based methods to quickly analyse surveillance video collected from street cameras or mobile devices with the intent to solve crimes at an accelerated rate.
