Erik B. Sudderth, Statistical Computation & Perception
I am an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of California, Irvine. I previously spent seven great years on the faculty at Brown University, where I remain an Adjunct Associate Professor of Computer Science. My Learning, Inference, & Vision Group develops statistical methods for scalable machine learning, with applications in artificial intelligence, vision, and the natural and social sciences. Particular areas of expertise include:
- Machine Learning
- graphical models, Bayesian nonparametrics, approximate inference
- Computer Vision
- object recognition & scene understanding, segmentation, motion & tracking
- Signal Processing
- nonlinear dynamical systems, image & video analysis, multiscale models
See my CVPR tutorial for an overview of Bayesian nonparametrics in computer vision. For a tutorial introduction to probabilistic modeling and approximate inference, see the background chapter of my doctoral thesis, advised by Professors Alan Willsky and William Freeman at MIT EECS. My postdoctoral research at Berkeley EECS was advised by Professors Michael Jordan and Stuart Russell.
