  • Recognizing & categorizing the world

    Hi all, today I wanted to share another paper published by Microsoft. It’s titled “Interactive 3D Labeling and Learning at your Fingertips” and demonstrates how their system is able to recognize objects on the fly online and how labelling works through voice commands. Their demo gives us some coffee tables and chairs with bananas and mugs to scan. You can nicely see how the system creates joint surfaces by “crawling” over the voxels. Their paper goes into details on how their new volumetric inference technique, based on an efficient mean-field approximation,…

Now with the Oculus CV around the corner and others joining the party everybody starts to refocus attention to ways how to handle VR well: to create great real-time demos, to interact with those and to…

    Is Oculus going augmented? A good week ago, the Oculus team announced the acquisition of Surreal Vision in their blog. The good people from Surreal Vision are the creators and refiners of all sorts & variants of SLAM & DTAM. Basically the who-is-who in vision-based tracking for AR. Speculations are boiling on what might happen. Just yesterday different sources claimed to have seen the leaked consumer version 1 (CV1) of the Oculus Rift (e.g. here). But those images are early prototypes and as stated by Oculus not even close to CV1. Maybe we will see an update hit the net even today…
