Ian Endres

I recieved my PhD in 2013, with a focus on computer vision and machine learning. I was advised by Derek Hoiem and frequently collaborated with David Forsyth.

My research extends the reach of recognition systems by using general knowledge of scenes and object properties to recognize any object with as much detail as possible. Depending on the knowledge available for a given object, predictions range in specificity from the location of an unknown object to highly detailed taxonomic classifi cation, localization, pose estimation, and segmentation.


I Graduated. My dissertation is here.
The first release of the source code for our CVPR 2013 paper is posted here.
