A Framework for the Semantic-Aware Modeling of Objects


Andreas Scalas


The evolution of 3D visual content calls for innovative methods for modeling shapes basing on their intended usage, function

and role in a complex scenario. Even if different attempts have been done in this direction, shape modeling still mainly focuses on

geometry. In this statement, I present my plans for obtaining a semantic-aware modeling environment, based on the knowledge

of a domain expert about objects sharing some properties (and so defining a homogeneous class).

Short bio

Andreas is a PhD student at the University of Genova and research fellow at CNR IMATI (GE). He got both his BSc and MSc at the University of Cagliary, respectively in 2014 and 2016. Since then, he started working as a research fellow at CNR IMATI under the umbrella of the European GRAVITATE project, with the aim of defining parametric templates of 3D shapes based on semantic descriptions characterizing homogeneous object classes. His research interests are focused in Computer Graphics and, in particular, in shape deformation, in shape annotation and semantic 3D media, in shape modelling and analysis and in shape recognition and classification.
