Tae-Kyun Kim, Imperial College of London, United Kingdom
Tae-Kyun (T-K) Kim is Associate Professor and the director of Computer Vision and Learning Lab at Imperial College London, UK, since 2010. He obtained his PhD and Research Fellowship from Univ. of Cambridge in 2008. His research interests primarily lie in machine learning for: articulated hand pose estimation, face analysis and recognition by image sets and videos, 6D object pose estimation, active robot vision, activity recognition, which lead to novel active and interactive visual sensing. He has co-authored 50+ papers in top-tier conferences and journals in the field, and has co-organised the series of HANDS workshop and Object Pose workshop. He was the general chair of BMVC17 in London, and is Associate Editor of Image and Vision Computing Journal, and IPSJ Trans. on Computer Vision and Applications. He received the best paper awards from ICRA14 and 2016 ASCE Journal of Computing in Civil Engineering, and his co-authored algorithm for face image retrieval is MPEG-7 ISO/IEC standard.
