Abstract

Xiaoming Liu

Reconstructing the detailed and complete 3D surface of an object from a single 2D image is a long standing computer vision problem. In this talk, we present an inverse graphics-based framework to learn a 3D face model from a large set of in-the-wild 2D face images, without the need of capturing 3D scans.

We also extend this framework to high-fidelity face modeling, as well as generic object modeling and 3D reconstruction. In the end, we will briefly overview other research efforts in the Computer Vision Lab at Michigan State University, including face anti-spoofing, explainable recognition, LiDAR completion, 2D/3D object detection from urban driving videos, etc.
