Leibe Group

The Chair for Computer Science 13 (Computer Vision) has long-standing research expertise in computer vision and machine learning, especially for applications in dynamic visual scene understanding. Research areas include object and person detection, multi-object tracking, semantic segmentation, and detailed human body pose analysis. In particular, the chair is a leading developer of video object segmentation, multi-object tracking and segmentation, and 3D human body pose estimation methods and has published several state-of-the-art approaches in those areas that have won international benchmarks and challenges in recent years. Chaired by Prof. Bastian Leibe, the research work of the group is internationally highly visible and has received many awards, including an ERC Starting Grant and an ERC Consolidator Grant.
