Olympus Award Winners Heidelberg 2007

Dr. Bodo Rosenhahn and Dr. Gunnar Rätsch: for their outstanding contributions to the area of computer vision and machine learning

Award: 5000 euros

Dr. Bodo Rosenhahn
Max Planck Institute for Informatics, Saarbrücken

Dr. Gunnar Rätsch
Friedrich Miescher Laboratory of the Max Planck Society, Tübingen

 

                                                                                                  Dr. Bodo Rosenhahn

The Olympus Award was granted to Bodo Rosenhahn for his work on the highly realistic and highly accurate 3D reconstruction of human motion from video image sequences. He was able to show that markerless image-based motion tracking of articulated objects with many degrees of freedom is possible with similar accuracy as when using elaborate marker-based systems, especially by combining silhouette-based methods and using learning methods for gaining prior knowledge about movement trajectories.

                                                                                                  Dr. Gunnar Rätsch

The Olympus Award was granted to Gunnar Rätsch for his work in machine learning and bioinformatics. He was able to successfully characterize the boosting processes and establish them in various disciplines. In addition, he has been able to successfully bridge the gap between machine learning and computational chemistry and biology, e.g. in the area of splice site prediction.
