Jogendra Nath Kundu
I am currently pursuing my PhD at Video Analytics Lab, CDS, Indian Institute of Science, under the supervision of Prof. R. Venkatesh Babu. My research primarily focuses on developing self-supervised domain adaptation solutions with a particular interest for dense prediction tasks such as depth estimation, semantic segmentation, and 3D human pose estimation.
Generalization in machine learning refers to the abstract feature of intelligence, which enables an algorithm/model to be effective across a range of inputs and applications. Dependency on high-quality annotations substantially limits the generalizability of supervised deep learning models. Structured prediction-based vision tasks such as scene segmentation or 3D human pose estimation suffer the most. My research aims to overcome these limitations. The key directions include; 1) curating useful synthetic domain data, 2) leveraging metadata relationships for self-supervised learning, and 3) unsupervised domain adaptation for continuously changing environments.
