Dr. Xucong Zhang
My ultimate goal is integrating humans and machines to free us from constrains of the physical body. My current research is about machine learning, computer vision and human-computer interaction. Specifically, I am working on gaze estimation and corresponding applications in the real-world setting.
I finished my PhD degree (summa cum laude) in 2018 at Max Planck Institute for Informatics, German, under supervision of Prof. Andreas Bulling. Prior to that, I received my Master degree in 2013 from Beihang University, China. I worked as an intern in CBSR Lab, Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences from 2011 to 2013.
[01.2020] We are going to organise "OpenEyes" workshop at ECCV 2020.
[09.2019] We won the OpenEDS Challenge 2019 (Synthetic Eye Generation Challenge).
[07.2019] One paper is accepted at ICCV 2019.
[06.2019] We are going to organise a the 1st Gaze Estimation and Prediction in the Wild workshop at ICCV 2019.
