Qualcomm Innovation Fellows Work on Smart Cities Project

Qualcomm has accepted Gengshan Yang and N Dinesh Reddy into its current class of Innovation Fellows for the pair's work on creating computer-generated 3D models of traffic, people, animals and their interactions in cities. They join 15 other projects selected from the hundreds that applied, and will receive $100,000 in funding and mentoring from top Qualcomm engineers.  Metro21 faculty member Srinivasa Narasimhan serves as advisor to N Dinesh Reddy.

Yang and Reddy's fellowship project, "Open World 3D Dynamic Reconstruction for Smart Cities" will be based on prior work by the pair, including Yang's paper, "LASR: Learning Articulated Shape Reconstruction From a Monocular Video," and Reddy's paper, "Traffic4D: Single View Reconstruction of Repetitious Activity Using Longitudinal Self-Supervision."
