Speaker: Dr. Haofei Wang Pengcheng Laboratory Shenzhen, China. Title "Gaze estimation technique and its applications" Date: Monday, 25 September 2025 Time: 4:00pm - 5:00pm Venue: Lecture Theater F (Leung Yat Sing Lecture Theater) near lift 25/26, HKUST Abstract: For a better human-robot interaction, accurate measurement of human intention is one of the keys. Human intention can be estimated by various channels, such as language, gesture, emotion, etc. This talk will focus on the eye gaze, which reveals human visual attention during interaction with the environment. We discover the rotation-consistency property in gaze estimation and introduce the 'sub-label' for unsupervised domain adaptation, and propose the rotation-enhanced unsupervised domain adaptation for gaze estimation. We also propose a new domain generalization method based on gaze-consistent features. Our idea is to consider the gaze-irrelevant factors as unfavorable interference and disturb the training data against them, so that the model cannot fit to these gaze-irrelevant factors, instead, only fits to the gaze-consistent features. Our framework has the potential to be used in various computer vision tasks with physical constraints. ********************** Biography Dr. Haofei Wang received the B.S. degree with distinction from Zhejiang University, and Ph.D. degree in electronic and computer engineering from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
