ISP AI Forum with James Hays

Join us for our ISP AI Forum where James Hays, Associate Professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Staff Scientist at Argo AI, will present "ContactDB: Analyzing and Predicting Grasp Contact via Thermal Imaging."

Observing contact through external sensors is challenging because of occlusion and the complexity of the human hand. We present ContactDB, a novel dataset of contact maps for household objects that captures the rich hand-object contact during grasping, enabled by use of a thermal camera. Participants in our study grasp 3D printed objects with a post-grasp functional intent.
