I am a Professor in the Division of Robotics, Perception and Learning, KTH. I am also a Principal AI Scientist at Silo AI and an affiliated researcher in the Perceiving Systems Department, Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen, Germany. A short bio is found here.
I do research in Computer Vision and Machine Learning. The general theme of my research is methods for enabling artificial agents to interpret the behavior of humans and other animals, and also to behave in ways interpretable to humans. As outlined in the Portfolio pages, these ideas are applied in Performing Arts, Healthcare, Veterinary Science, and Smart Society.
In my free time I play the double bass in different settings, more info here.
|We will present our recent work on anatomically correct 3D pose and shape modeling of horses in the CVPR Workshop on Computer Vision for Animal Behavior Tracking and Modeling. See you online on June 25 at 15:30 PST / June 26 at 00:30 CEST!|
|I look forward to giving a talk in the SHIFT Business Festival on August 25 at 15:15 EEST, in my role as Principal AI Scientist at Silo AI. If all goes well, the talk will be live in Turku/Åbo (and available online).|
