Dr. Diane Lingrand is associate professor at the University of Sophia Antipolis. Her research have focused more specially about 3D Interactions with 3D objects and 3D images, using Vision-based input devices and facilitating the Human-Computer Interactions by using information on the context. Her research interests are machine learning, mainly Support Vector Machines, for computer vision problems such as plant identification in image and metadata datasets, action recognition in videos, locations and objects recognition in 3D scenes, and perceptual vision models for image classification.
