Videos

Most presentations seem to be recorded by the conference venue then vanish into the aether; but some have been preserved! Here are a few videos of talks I’ve given.

Clean Models From Noisy Sensors: RGBD Reconstruction
Given at the Stanford Berkeley Robotics Symposium (SBRS) 2013 in Berkeley, CA. Should start at 53m06s

Recent Advancements in PCL
Given at the Stanford Berkeley Robotics Symposium (SBRS) 2013 in Berkeley, CA. Should start at 35m08s

Perception for the Manipulation of Socks
Given at the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) 2011 in San Francisco, CA

Parametrized Shape Models for Clothing
Given at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) 2011 in Shanghai, China

Slides

Note: Powerpoint / Keynote slides tend to be massive, and fairly tough to port with videos. Here I’ll upload PDFs, but feel free to e-mail me (stephen__at__cs.stanford.edu) if you’d like to use slides in your presentation, and I’ll be happy to adapt to your software.

Preview Brief
Dense 2013 Dense reconstruction
Lecture for CS 287 at UC Berkeley. About 80 minutes; goes over the basic building blocks of Kinect Fusion, brief survey of subsequent research.
