Machine Learning / AI

Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence algorithms have been a core theme of my work in both academia and industry. From my early work with decision and probablistic boosting trees to deep learning.

I have used machine learning for a number of applications including object detection, feature detection, tracking, pose estimation, registration and segmentation.

You can find more information on my work in my papers and videos.
