That's leadership.  It really makes the point that programming is power today.  It is part of a general education.  Nicely done.
On Monday, Nov. 2, President Paxson broke out her laptop and joined a workshop aimed at helping Brown students learn to code using the programming language Python. “Python with Paxson” was presented by Hack@Brown, a student group that organizes Brown's annual student hackathon.

At ICCV'11 we introduced the first method to capture human body shape and pose using a Kinect. For ICCV'15 we have significantly improved on this by capturing accurate and highly detailed shape using RGB-D sequences.w

The Frankfurter Allgemeine newspaper science section picked up our body visualizer web app and sent visits through the roof.  Clearly post Christmas angst about having eaten too much.

Es gibt so gut wie nichts, was es nicht gibt im Netz der Netze: Geniales, Interessantes, Nützliches und herrlich Überflüssiges. Diesmal: Eine Visualisierung der menschlichen Proportionen.

Here is a preview of our CVPR'16 paper, which uses semantic image segmentation to improve optical flow estimation, with top results among monocular methods on KITTI 2015.  https://ps.is.tuebingen.mpg.de/publications/sevilla-cvpr-2016

Our new SIGGRAPH Asia paper defines a 3D body model that is more accurate than our previous models, is compatible with existing graphics systems, and is available for research purposes. The website and model will be available in the next few days.

I'm excited about the results in our new ICCV paper on "Intrinsic Depth" from video.

The MPI for Intelligent Systems gets a new member.
Athena got an economy ticket but still enjoyed special treatment, including a cut to the front of the ticket line in the first-class lane.

Digital doppelgangers, oh my!
Scan your body and Body Labs will create a 3D model that you can pose and animate. The potential applications for your digital self are endless and businesses are taking a look.

Introduction
Michael Black received his B.Sc. from the University of British Columbia (1985), his M.S. from Stanford (1989), and his Ph.D. from Yale University (1992). After post-doctoral research at the University of Toronto, he worked at Xerox PARC as a member of research staff and an area manager. From 2000 to 2010 he was on the faculty of Brown University in the Department of Computer Science (Assoc. Prof. 2000-2004, Prof. 2004-2010). He is presently one of the founding directors at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen, Germany, where he leads the Perceiving Systems department.  He is an Honorarprofessor at the University of Tuebingen, Visiting Professor at ETH Zürich, and Adjunct Professor (Research) at Brown University. His work has won several awards including the IEEE Computer Society Outstanding Paper Award (1991), Honorable Mention for the Marr Prize (1999 and 2005), the 2010 Koenderink Prize for Fundamental Contributions in Computer Vision, and the 2013 Helmholtz Prize for work that has stood the test of time. He is a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. He is also a co-founder and board member of Body Labs Inc.
