SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL SKILLS

WORKSHOP FOR THE HANDLING OF THE OPTITRACK MOTION CAPTURE SYSTEM

Speaker: Prof. José Ángel López Campos – CINTECX – Universidade de Vigo.

Date: July 23rd, 2024.

Time: 11:00h-14:00 and 15:00-17:30h.

Modality: in-person, Virtual Reality and Motion Laboratory of CITIC.

Objective: To learn about the management and potential use of CITIC’s unique infrastructure of the Optitrack motion capture system (https://optitrack.com/). CITIC in its Virtual Reality and Positioning laboratory has an Optitrack system composed of 8 cameras, data capture equipment and controlled light environment that allow the capture of movement of rigid objects and human bodies. The motion capture system used in the workshop will be Motive with the Body license.

During the workshop an example of the whole workflow of a data acquisition and processing process will be performed:

  • Basic features of the motion capture system
  • Selection of the capture model
  • Capture preparation: suit, marker placement
  • Motion capture
  • Data preprocessing
  • Data export to OpenSIM
  • Preprocessing and basic analysis of the biomechanical model

CURSO FUNDAMENTALS OF DEEP LEARNING

  • Fechas: November 7 and 8.
  • Ponente: Mario Martínez Zarzuela (Deep Learning and CUDA Ambassador DLI Institute Nvidia).
  • Registration
  • Limited seating: Admission on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Abstract: Deep learning is a powerful AI approach that uses multi-layered artificial neural networks to deliver state-of-the-art accuracy in tasks such as object detection, speech recognition, and language translation. Through deep learning, computers can learn and recognize patterns in data that are considered too complex or subtle for expertly written software. In this workshop you will learn how deep learning works through hands-on computer vision exercises. You will train deep learning models from scratch, learning tools and tricks to achieve highly accurate results. You will also learn how to take advantage of freely available state-of-the-art pre-trained models to save time and make your learning models more accurate.
