Biography

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil. My research interests include Computer Vision, Smart Surveillance, Forensics, and Biometrics, in which he authored more than 100 scientific papers and coordinates research projects sponsored by several Brazilian Funding Agencies, such as CNPq, FAPEMIG and CAPES, and R&D projects sponsored by companies such as Samsung and Hewlett-Packard.

I am the head of the Smart Surveillance Interest Group (SSIG), a research group focusing on problems related to large-scale Surveillance. The Smart Surveillance Interest Group (SSIG) is composed of researchers, graduate and undergraduate students that investigate problems related to Video Surveillance, Forensics and Biometrics by developing techniques on Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition and Digital Image Processing. The research group tackles problems including feature extractionpedestrian detection, spoofing detection, face recognition, person re-identification, anomaly detection and activity recognition to allow scene understanding.

Research

My research includes the development of techniques for Computer Vision, Machine Learning and Image Processing to solve problems on three main application domains: Smart Surveillance, Biometrics and Computer Forensics. I tend to investigate these problems in an integrated manner. While surveillance aims at “discovering” possible suspicious activities that can lead to an undesired event, the computer forensics searches for evidences once the event already took place in an earlier time. The biometrics is important for both because being able to identify the agents in the video might lead to different conclusions regarding the importance of the activities executed.

R&D Project – Video Analytics Solutions
The Smart Surveillance Interest Group started early this month the execution of a R&D project as a partnership with Maxtrack, a Minas Gerais based company leader in vehicle tracking and telemetry, through EMBRAPII DCC/UFMG. Read more.
2nd DeepEyes Workshop
The 2nd DeepEyes Workshop was held at UFMG Campus in October 03, 2016. Counting researchers such as Larry S. Davis (University of Maryland), François Bremond (INRIA), Eduardo Valle (Unicamp), Sandra Ávila, Filipe Costa, William Robson Schwartz (UFMG), were presented and discussed advances achieved in the previous year of the project.

Research Group

My research group is called Smart Surveillance Interest Group (SSIG) and is composed by researchers, graduate and undergraduate students focusing their works on Smart Surveillance, Forensics and Biometrics. The SSIG maintains a first class computational structure composed by several servers and multiple surveillance cameras that allow large-scale experiments.

My research group is composed of researchers, graduate and undergraduate students focusing their works on Smart Surveillance, Forensics and Biometrics. The SSIG group maintains a computational structure composed by several servers and multiple surveillance cameras that allow large-scale experiments. The group also maintains weekly meetings to discuss current papers, study technical books and share research updates among its members.

Research Projects

Over the years, I have coordinated several research projects in the areas of Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition applied to Smart Surveillance, Biometrics and Computer Forensics. Some of the projects have been sponsored by Brazilian Research Funding Agencies, such as the Brazilian National Research Council (CNPq), the Minas Gerais Research Foundation (FAPEMIG) and the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES), and others developed in collaboration with large multinational companies, such as Hewlett-Packard and Samsung.

Currently, I am involved on projects focusing human activity recognition, human identification based on faces and tracking, detection of anomalies on videos, development of portable biometric devices, development of smart surveillance systems, recognition of vehicles on road and the investigation of forensic-related problems.

Publications

I published many scientific papers focusing on computer vision, smart surveillance, biometrics and computer forensics in important conferences and journals, such as ICCV, ECCV, BMVC, WACV, ICIP, ICASSP, FG, IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security, Elsevier Neurocomputing and a book on Image Processing. A description of some recente publications and a list with selected publications are shown as follows.

Face Verification based on Relational Disparity Features and Partial Least Squares Models
Face recognition has been one of the most important tasks in computer vision due to the wide range of applications. One of the face recognition tasks, the face verification is responsible for  determining whether two facial images belong to the same subject or are from different subjects. In this paper, that will be presented in the Conference on Graphics, Patterns and Images (SIBGRAPI 2017), we exploit the differences between pairs of images and the diversity generated by multiple classifiers to perform face verification. Read more.
Towards Open-Set Face Recognition using Hashing Functions (Best Paper Runner-up Award IJCB 2017)
The problem of open-set face recognition determines whether the subject's picture presented to the recognition system belongs to a known individual (person in the gallery). This problem is of great importance to find suspects in public environment. In this paper, that will be presented in The International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB 2017), we combine hashing functions and classification methods to find out when probe samples are known.
