Jasper Uijlings


I am a research scientist at Google working with Vittorio Ferrari on human-machine collaboration for large scale image annotation for both object detection and image segmentation. I received my PhD in 2011 at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) under supervision of Prof. Dr.Ir. A. Smeulders and Prof. Dr. Ir. R. Scha. During this period, I was part of the UvA team which successfully participated in the PASCAL VOC Challenges, winning the classification challenge in 2008, receiving honorable mentions from 2009-2011, and winning object detection in 2012, the fi nal year of the competition. In 2011 we won the ILSVRC object detection challenge. From 2011-2013 I was a researcher at the University of Trento, Italy, where I worked on real-time video classification and on combining vision and language. From 2014-2015 I worked at the University of Edinburgh with Prof.Dr. Vittorio Ferrari on object boundary detection, weakly supervised object localisation, and efficient annotation for object detection.
