On June 13th, 14th and 16th the seminar “Computer Vision and High-Performance Systems” was held at the AMTC’s facility. The event showed advances and updates on optic recognition software and visual information management in computers and, specifically, robotics.
Thus, some of the subject addressed were stochastic monocular SLAM, use of drones in mining and GPS-free environments, and GPU applications in geostatistic algorithms.
Dr. Martínez Carranza has a PhD in Computer Science, University of Bristol, and is a full time researcher at INAOE, one of the most important research centers in Mexico. His work focuses in four main areas: robotics; computer vision; applications in computer learning, and GPU and FPGA applications. He particularly focuses in location and visual simultaneous mapping, 3D reconstruction, control and navigation for autonomous flight and algorithm acceleration using GPU and FPGA. Las year he obtained the Royal Society Newton Advanced Fellowship, funding granted for research in aerial robotics and for stablishing collaborations with top scientists in the United Kingdom.
