Fabian Caba Heilbron
My research interests span computer vision and machine learning. Specifically, I build systems that recognize and detect human activities from videos. Some of my efforts include:
- gathering large-scale video datasets
- developing efficient scanning methods for video analysis
- training models for temporal activity localization

IVUL [2015-Present]: I am a Research Assistant at IVUL. My work focuses on developing models for human activity understanding. The outcomes of my works are usually published at computer vision conferences (see Publications).
ActivityNet Challenge [2016-Present]: I am one of the leading forces behind organizing the ActivityNet Challenge. I built the infrastructure that allows multiple researchers to test-bed their methods. The challenge has attracted a large number of researchers, and it has been sponsored by several companies including DeepMind, Facebook, and Google AI.
Mantis AI [2017-Present]: I am a co-founder of Mantis AI. Mantis crafts ground-breaking research in deep-learning to perform activity detection and video summarization for content-aware ad placement.
Adobe Research [Summer 2017, Summer 2018]: I was an intern for two consecutive summers at Adobe Research. During these periods I developed: (i) an active learning method for action detection; (ii) a navigation system for video editing purposes.
