We propose an active vision system for object acquisition. The core of our approach is a reinforcement learning module which learns a strategy to scan an object. The agent moves a virtual camera around an object and is able to adapt dynamically to different conditions of its environment such as different objects and different purposes of the data(More)

More examples of applications, further(More)
Wild felids and canids are usually the main predators in the food chains where they dwell and are almost invisible to behavior and ecology researchers. Due to their grooming behavior, they tend to swallow shed hair, which shows up in the feces. DNA found in hair shafts can be used in molecular studies that can unravel, for instance, genetic variability,(More)
