Three­-dimensional data has been used for decades in computer science. Nevertheless, methods for the automatic analysis, recognition, categorization and comparison of 3D objects have become an active field of research only recently. In this seminar, we will start by reviewing the classical approaches in the literature and then proceed to investigate methods for automatic retrieval and analysis of 3D models. The course will touch upon the most recent advances in the field. Particular emphasis will be put on defining and computing similarity between shapes, when these shapes are allowed to undergo non­rigid deformations (e.g. different poses of a human model).

We are also offering a lecture on 3D Shape Analysis this semester. The topics will be similar to the seminar but discussed more in-depth.
