Georg Poier

Currently, I'm a research assistant and PhD student at the Institute for Computer Graphics and Vision at Graz University of Technology, where I'm supervised by Prof. Horst Bischof.

Very roughly, my research interest is in machine learning for computer vision. Below you'll find some more details, including links to projects and publications.

If you are interested in our work or a student project, feel free to send me an e-mail.

Selected Projects

Hand Pose Estimation
The goal of this work is to develop methods to estimate the hand pose, i.e., the joint positions, given an image of the hand.
Such methods provide the basis for applications like human computer interaction, activity analysis, and sign language recognition. One of our implementations, e.g., found the way into a product of a partner company, which used the estimated hand poses for interaction with computer games.

Semantic Segmentation
The goal of this work was to develop methods to segment petroglyphs pecked into the rocks of Valcamonica (northern Italy) thousands of years ago.
The main challange stemmed from the weathering, which the rocks have undergone in the meantime.
