Arsal Syed

I am currently Postdoctoral Scholar at RTIS lab University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV). My research focuses on understanding human motion (social interaction, scene understanding, long-term trajectory prediction) in dense environment using computer vision and deep learning techniques.

Previously I finished my PhD at UNLV under supervison of Dr Brendan Morris, and worked in Industrial Automation and Controls industry.

Current Projects

Machine Learning Infrastructure for Real Time Trajectory Prediction

To deploy state of the art trajectory prediction models at scale we are building a end-end machine learning framework. This prototype will include

1) Data Ingestion from live video feeds
2) Preprocessing engine
3) Machine learning experimentation platform
4) Model training and Evaluation
5) Deployment, real-time Inference and automated retraining
