My research belongs to the area of computer vision and machine learning and is centered on methods and systems for video understanding and 3d scene analysis. I have worked extensively on object tracking, audio-visual tracking, head pose estimation and group detection for behavior analysis. My current focus is on representation learning for video.

Sudhakaran, Swathikiran; Escalera, Sergio; Lanz, Oswald,In this report we describe the technical details of our submission to the EPIC-Kitchens 2019 action recognition challenge. To participate in the challenge we have developed a number of CNN-LSTA  and HF-TSN  variants, and submitted predictions from an ensemble compiled out of these two model families. Our submission, visible on the public leaderboard with team name FBK-HUPBA, achieved a top-1 action recognition accuracy of 35.54% on S1 setting, and 20.25% on S2 setting.,2019
