I am a Professor in the Division of Robotics, Perception and Learning, KTH, and also affiliated with Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Silo AI, Swedish e-Science Research Centre, and Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, 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 human and animal behavior. As outlined in the Portfolio pages, these ideas are applied in the study of human aesthetic bodily expressions such as in music and dance, modeling and interpreting human communicative behavior, and the understanding of animal behavior and experiences. In order to accomplish this we develop methods for agents to perceive the world and build representations of it through vision.
In my free time I play the double bass in different settings, more info here.
|On September 14, 2023, I featured in the UR documentary series Sverige Forskar and talked about our research on computer analysis of horse behavior. Here is the espisode (in Swedish).|
On April 21, 2023, I was interviewed in Swedish-speaking Finnish radio about AI and large language models like Chat-GPT. Here is the interview (in Swedish).
|On December 20, 2022, I appeared in Swedish television and talked about AI, creativity and what I think we should worry about. Here is the interview (in Swedish).|
