Short bio

I am Research Scientist at Fondazione Bruno Kessler - FBK and former head of the computer vision research Unit TeV of FBK.

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 trackinghead pose estimation and group detection for behavior analysis. My current focus is on representation learning for video.

    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 [3] and HF-TSN [2] 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.,
