ElSe: ellipse selection for robust pupil detection in real-world environments

This paper from ETRA '16 proposes a novel algorithm based on ellipse evaluation of a filtered edge image.

PiGraphs: learning interaction snapshots from observations

This paper from SIGGRAPH 2016 demonstrates a probabilistic model connecting human poses and arrangements of object geometry from real-world observations of interactions, enabling a novel human-centric understanding of 3D content.

Let there be color! Joint end-to-end learning of global and local image priors for automatic image colorization with simultaneous classification

This paper from SIGGRAPH 2016 presents a novel technique to automatically colorize grayscale images that combines both global priors and local image features
