Author: Gabriel Brostow
He is a postdoc in the Vision and Robotics Group at Cambridge University, part of the Engineering Department's Machine Intelligence Lab.
His research and teaching are on the computational perception of motion patterns; analyzing them in video, modeling, and synthesizing them. This work is exciting because it can potentially impact diverse areas like A.I., Biomechanics, games, special effects, and Zoology.
He completed a B.S. in Electrical Engineering at U.T. Austin, and his Ph.D. in the GVU Center, College of Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology, working on computer animation and vision with Prof. Irfan Essa.
