Summary

The main objective of ENVISION is to develop the computer vision and theoretic foundations of efficient human analysis systems that analyze appearance and dynamics of both face and body, towards recognition of identity, gender, age, as well as mental and social states of humans in in the presence of operational randomness and data uncertainty. Such dynamics - which will include facial expressions, visual focus of attention, hand and body movement, and others, constitute a new class of tools that have the potential to allow for successful holistic analysis of humans, beneficial in two key settings: (a) biometric identification in the presence of difficult operational settings that cause traditional traits to fail, (b) early detection of frailty symptoms for health care.
