DIODE Dataset

Currently I am working on the newly-released DIODE RGB-D Dataset, advised by Prof. Greg Shakhnarovich from Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago.

DIODE (Dense Indoor and Outdoor DEpth) is a dataset that contains diverse high-resolution color images with accurate, dense, wide-range depth measurements. It is the first public dataset to include RGBD images of indoor and outdoor scenes obtained with one sensor suite.

Short Bio

Mr. Shanyi (Ken) Zhang is now a final-year undergraduate student in Beihang University, majoring in Electronic and Information Engineering. His area of focus is 3D Vision Perception and Scene Understanding. During his undergraduate education, he has accumulated research experience both in labs in domestic university and as overseas summer interns. He has been the co-author of several papers in the field of computer vision. He plans to pursue graduate education abroad.
