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.
Friday, February 8 at 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
