Fabien Baradel

I am a first year PhD Candidate at INSA Lyon - LIRIS.
I am working on Machine Learning and Computer Vision.
My supervisors are Christian Wolf and Julien Mille.
My PhD focuses on video understanding.

PhD thesis title:
"Deep Learning for Human Understanding: poses, gestures, activities"
funded by the ANR/NSREC DeepVision project.

I received my Engineer's degree (MSc) from ENSAI with a major in Big Data - Data Science. Previously I've been intern at Xerox Research Centre Europe.

My main researchs focus on video understanding and specially understanding human activities. I am interested in machine learning, deep learning, computer vision and domain adaptation. I am also interested about theoritical aspects in machine learning.


Human Action Recognition: Pose-based Attention draws focus to Hands

PDF / bibtex

A new spatio-temporal attention based mechanism for human action recognition able to automatically attend to most important human hands and detect the most discriminative moments in an action.


Discrepancy-based networks for unsupervised domain adaptation: a comparative study
Gabriela Csurka, Fabien Baradel, Boris Chidlovskii, Stephane Clinchant,

PDF / bibtex

We introduce a new dataset for Domain Adaptation and show a comparaison between shallow and deep methods based on Maximum Mean Discrepancy.


Pose-conditioned Spatio-Temporal Attention for Human Action Recognition
Fabien Baradel, Christian Wolf, Julien Mille
arXiv Preprint, 2017
arXiv / project page / video / bibtex

We introduce an attention-based mechanism around hands on RGB videos conditioned on features extracted from human 3D pose. We show state-of-the-art perfomance on the largest dataset and apply transfer learning on smaller datasets.
