Palwasha Afsar is a Ph.D. in computer vision from the University of Porto, Portugal. The main focus of my Ph.D. thesis was to understand human behaviors and utilize that knowledge for transforming computers for intelligent decision making. In this Ph.D., an intelligent system is developed, capable to recognise actions and
predict the destinations of people from an unconstrained real-life environment video. It can also detect body parts e.g., head, hands, and legs without any markers and sensors.In parallel with my academic studies, I am also an active reviewer of three good impact factor Journals ESWA (Elsevier) and IET, and 3D research where I gave my expert opinion for a peer-review. I am also a PC member of two International conferences VISAPP and SITIS.I have a strong technical background in AI, with main research interests in Human Behaviour detection, Action Recognition, Face Detection, Expression Recognition, Tracking, Object detection, Segmentation.In addition to that, I have experience working with a startup company “Heptasense”, which is using AI-based software for human behavior recognition. During my job period, I developed systems such as face detection and expression recognition, head-pose estimation, Object tracking/detection.I also worked as a researcher with Algorithmic research center, University of Minho, where we developed a gender detection tool.
