About:

Dr. Alain Pagani studied computer science at the Ecole Centrale (Lyon, France, 2001) and at the Technical University of Darmstadt (Germany, 2003). He started his career as a researcher at the Augmented Reality department of the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics (Fraunhofer IGD, Darmstadt, Germany). In 2008, he participated to the creation of the Augmented Vision department of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) in Kaiserslautern, where he currently acts as deputy director. He obtained his PhD from the University of Kaiserslautern with a thesis entitled “Reality Models for efficient registration in Augmented Reality”, in which he tackled the problem or real-time pose estimation for AR using various mathematical models of real scenes.
His research interests include Computer Vision, Artificial Intelligence, Image Understanding, Augmented Reality and Machine Learning, and he published over 30 articles in conferences and journals. Parallel to his work at DFKI, he gives lectures at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern (“Computer Vision: Object and People Tracking”, and “3D Computer Vision”).
In his recent research activities, he contributes to European projects (Horizon 2020 programme), with applications such as miniature energy-efficient cameras for the Internet of Things (“Eyes of Things”, EU Grant 643924) and Augmented Reality using Global Navigation Satellite Systems (“LARA”, EU Grant 641460), as well as to industrial applications.
