Lecture by Sho Takahashi Video analysis for sports understanding

Sho Takahashi

Professor Sho Takahashi is giving a talk next Thursday (11 October) at 11:00, Aula Anfiteatro MICC. The talk will focus on “Video analysis techniques for sports understanding”.

Sho Takahashi will talk his group’s works about “A study on methods for encouragement of experience and its’ applications”.

His group are studying for (1) support techniques for infrastructure maintenance; (2) error estimation techniques for numerical prediction; (3) web-based system of image retrieval; (4) video analysis techniques for sports understanding.

Especially, the topic he introduces this time is about “(4) Video analysis techniques for sports understanding”.

His main works in (4) are proposition of visualization methods of pass courses on football videos. These are analyzing humans and ball behavior on soccer field by utilizing object extraction schemes.

Now, he is trying to applicating his multimedia analysis techniques to the field of civil engineering, that is transportation systems in designs of city.

Short bio: Sho Takahashi received his B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electronics and Information Engineering from Hokkaido University, Japan in 2008, 2010 and 2013, respectively.

He joined the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, Hokkaido University, as an Assistant Professor in 2013.

He was an Associate Professor of the Education and Research Center for Mathematical and Data Science, Hokkaido University from 2017 to 2018. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Engineering, Hokkaido University.

His research interests include semantic analysis and visualization in various data.

He is a member of the IEEE, IEICE, Institute of Image Information and Television Engineers (ITE), Japan Society of Civil Engineering (JSCE) and Society of Automotive Engineering of Japan (JSAE).
