DEI Talks

From Ear Recognition to Deidentification and Virtual Try On

Date: September 29, 2021

Time: 2:45 pm

Room: I-105

Speaker: Peter Peer


In this talk I will present the ongoing projects at the Computer Vision Laboratory at the Faculty of Computer and Information Science, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, EU.
We mostly tackle research questions in biometrics, thus, we will start with ear recognition, switch to sclera recognition and iris recognition. I will talk about biometrics privacy-enhancing techniques, automated fingermark quality assessment, how to correctly detect face-masks for COVID-19 from visual information, context-driven image-based virtual try-on. In between I will also mention our project that aims at recovery of superquadric parameters and our art and augmented reality related projects. I will also mention our collaboration with groups around the world, with JRC, and EUTOPIA University Alliance.
The goal of the talk is to inform the department members of possible collaborations, might be in joint organisation of a special issue, competition, joint project, whether at the EU, national level, or for industry, joint publication, co-mentoring a PhD student, etc. - actually, whatever comes to mind in terms of R&D collaboration.


Short Bio

Peter Peer is a Full Professor at the Faculty of Computer and Information Science, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, where he heads the Computer Vision Laboratory, coordinates the double degree study program with the Kyungpook National University, South Korea, and serves as a vice-dean for economic affairs. He received his PhD degree in computer science from the same institution in 2003. Within his post-doctorate he was an invited researcher at CEIT, Donostia – San Sebastian, Spain. He teaches courses on Operating systems, Game technology and virtual reality, and Image-based biometry. His  research interests include biometrics and computer vision. He participated in several national and EU funded R&D projects and published more than 100 research papers in leading international peer reviewed journals and conferences. He is a co-organizer of the Unconstrained Ear Recognition Challenge (2017, 2019) and Sclera Segmentation Benchmarking Competition (2020). He serves as an Associated Editor of IEEE Access and IET Biometrics. He is a member of the EAB, IAPR and IEEE, where he also served as a chairman of the Slovenian IEEE Computer chapter for four years.
