Current Projects

Currently Postdoctoral Researcher & Tech Development Coordinator at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in the Comparative Cultural Psychology department, I apply and develop computer vision tools with the aim of better understanding the human and non-human animal mind. We also aim to change our way of acquiring data by encouraging non-invasive methods. We hope to strengthen hypotheses and conclusions through big data analysis and model robustness.

Zoo Cam Set-Up

We aim to build a portable setup to locate, track and identify non-human primates in their enclosure or natural environment. Such a project can be divided into several independent tasks:

  • individual detection & tracking

  • track-line classification

  • 3D localization from several images

In order to retrieve qualitative information, the Zoo Cam Set-Up must have synchronized high-resolution images and static cameras.

BioTIP - Bio-Signal Retrieval from Thermal Imaging Processing

Our focus is on building a set of computer vision tools for the psychology and animal behavior research communities to retrieve bio-signals in an ecological manner. We aim to increase the use of thermal imaging modality in the community and avoid using more invasive recording methods to answer research questions.

We created the ApeNose dataset, constituted of TI images of chimpanzees with their face (bbox) and nose (9 landmarks) annotated. Several state-of-the-art methods are then compared with our implemented Tifa (Face) and Tina (Nose) models. We aim to analyze the temporal evolution of certain regions and landmarks in order to retrieve physiological signals that help us better understand the human and non-human mind.

Quantex - Quantifying Lived Experience

Quantex focuses on the analysis of lived experience in childhood. For this purpose, families participate in our acquisition project by letting their child wear a vest equipped with a camera. In order to process and understand these egocentric videos, different computer vision challenges remain to be solved:

  • object interaction detection

  • person detection and identification

  • action localization and classification

After have investigated the automatic detection of interaction with objects, we are focusing on the type of activities the child is performing alone or with others.

CASE - Computer-Animal Self-testing Environment

CASE aims to allow non-human animal individuals to test themselves independently in their enclosure at their own speed over several days. The state of the experiment should be saved when the individual leaves and loaded back when needed. Data acquisition can therefore be conducted without human intervention. The data may then be collected and processed remotely, as the experiment can be changed or updated. A dataset has been automatically generated using recordings from ZACI devices, automatic detection of individuals and low effort annotations. This dataset can be derived in several versions, leading to different performances for individual classification. This dataset is currently being enriched for further investigation.
