Making machines understand what they see has proven to be an exceptionally challenging problem for the AI community. In this talk, I will discuss some of my attempts at answering the following questions that I believe are important for enabling machine vision:

1. How to construct models for scene understanding that produce interpretations of the scene that are (more) consistent with the physical world?

2. How to learn and evaluate intelligent systems that "interact" with humans?

I will conclude by talking about our latest work on performing human pose estimation using the Kinect sensor and discuss the challenges of developing a system that is supposed to work on "everybody".
