Image alignment is a fundament research problem in computer vision, which is essential to many real-world applications, such as medical imaging, multimedia processing, robotics and face recognition. It can be formulated into different optimization problems with different models like nonrigid deformation, data embeddings and geometric constraints. Generally, research efforts on image alignment can be grouped into two categories, template-based method and model-based approach. For the template-based image alignment, I will discuss the problem of nonrigid surface recovery, fast spatial matching for rigid objects, visual odometry and object tracking. Moreover, I will introduce our recent progress on model-based facial image alignment for 3D face modeling and audio-driven talking head.

In this talk, I will briefly introduce our previous research work on image alignment with nonrigid deformations, facial image alignment, fast spatial matching for object retrieval, and correlation-filter based trackers.
