Research Overview

My research is in the areas of Machine Learning and Computer Vision. I am particularly interested in applying Deep Learning methods to object recognition. I also work on low-level vision problems, with applications to computational photography and astronomy.


Deep Learning for Computer Vision

NIPS 2013 Tutorial [Slides]


Online Recognition Demo

See our deep convolutional network demo here. This network achieves 16.5% top-5 error on the Imagenet 2012 classification challenge, around 2% better than the network of Krizhevsky et al. (NIPS 2012).
