21jul - 26All DayComputer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) 2017

Event Details

Computer vision team members Matt Turek and Matt Leotta demonstrate software solutions at a past CVPR exhibition.

Known as “the premier annual computer vision event,” CVPR draws thousands of attendees with ties to academia and enterprise. The conference includes an exhibition and a doctoral consortium as well as workshops, tutorials and demonstrations.

Kitware is a silver sponsor of this year’s conference, which multiple company team leaders have worked to organize. Senior Director of Computer Vision Anthony Hoogs, Ph.D., is a general chair. He serves as the only general chair who represents a small business. In addition, Assistant Director of Computer Vision Matt Turek, Ph.D., is a corporate relations chair. To this role, he brings experience from Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency programs that include Automated Wide-Area Activity Recognition (AWARE) and Predictive Analysis for Naval Deployment Activities (PANDA).

From July 22 to July 25, Hoogs and Turek will join members of Kitware’s computer vision team at booth 242. The team members will demonstrate software such as the Kitware Image and Video Exploitation and Retrieval (KWIVER) toolkit, which contains a repository of open-source tools for technical analysis. The team members include Technical Leader Matt Leotta, Ph.D., and Senior R&D Engineer Chengjiang Long, Ph.D. Long co-authored “Correlational Gaussian Processes for Cross-domain Visual Recognition,” which will be part of this year’s Proc. IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition.

Beyond software, the team members will call attention to opportunities for employment. In particular, Kitware looks to hire for the following positions: computer vision software developer, computer vision researcher and 3D computer vision researcher. Kitware also looks to add to its list of collaborators. With expertise in social multimedia analysis, object detection, pointcloud and depth image processing, event and activity recognition, scene understanding and deep learning, Kitware has worked on a wide range of research and development projects throughout the field of computer vision.
