M2 student Silviya here, been on the second week of my Internship at Oulu University, Finland. First impression ? The weather is super COLD, it’s literally freezing every day. But hey, you can get free coffee in the lab every day ! Yaay coffee !! ❤
I’m assigned in the Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering, laboratory of Center for Machine Vision and Signal Analysis (CMVS), under the supervision of Professor Janne Heikkilä. My first day was amazing, of course.. as always I got lost a bit when I tried to find the lab, but the good point I was able took my own time to explore the university, went through most Faculty before I got to the right lab (Yaay again!). Here, in CMVS lab. their research covers broad and various fields, including Neural Network, Augmented Reality, and 3D reconstruction.
Once you get inside the laboratory area, you will see a screen display, with Face Analysis demo running in real time to do gender recognition and also facial expression recognition. But then “Female = 0 “. Finally, I’m an alien and can’t be detected ! (Yaay again??)
