    Low-level Vision for Autonomous Driving

    Raquel Urtasun
    TTI Chicago


    Over the past few decades we have witnessed a great improvement in performance of low-level vision algorithms. As demonstrated by the Middlebury leader-board, problems such as stereo and optical flow estimation are mostly solved when dealing with imagery captured in the laboratory. Unfortunately, when dealing with real world problems most algorithms fail.

    In this talk I’ll show how autonomous driving can provide us with very challenging scenarios to push current algorithms to the next level. Furthermore, I‘ll argue that the next generation of low-level vision algorithms should be holistic and reason jointly about multiple related tasks such as recognition and perceptual grouping.
