SegmentAnyTree: A sensor and platform agnostic deep learning model for tree segmentation using laser scanning data

3:30 PM - 3:45 PM

Abstract

Biography

Stefano Puliti is a researcher at the interception between forestry, sensor technology and AI. In recent years Puliti's work has focused on the the application of deep learning techniques relying on terrestrial and aerial data sources as well as passive (images) and active (lidar) sensors. In an effort to accelerate and improve scientific progress, Puliti has also led several open science initiatives.

Prof Anthony Finn
Professor
University of South Australia

On the Value of Aerial and Terrestrial 3D Point Cloud Fusion

3:45 PM - 4:00 PM

Abstract

Biography

Professor Anthony Finn is Professor of Autonomous Systems at the University of South Australia. He graduated from Cambridge University with a PhD in 1989 and has since published two books and around a three hundred book chapters, journal articles, refereed conference papers, and research reports. From 2011 - 2019 Prof Finn was Director of the Defence and Systems Institute (DASI); and prior to joining DASI in 2010 he worked at the Defence Science & Technology Organisation (DSTO) for almost twenty years, the last ten of which were spent leading a team of around forty scientists and engineers conducting research into the defence applications of autonomous and unmanned vehicles. Prior to joining DSTO, and while based at Cambridge University, Professor Finn worked as a research consultant for a number of large organisations in Europe.
