Per-Erik Forssén, PhD
I am no longer at UBC. Here is a link to my current affiliation.
Until December 2007 I was a post-doctoral fellow at UBC working with Prof. Jim Little,
at the Department of Computer Science, in
the Laboratory for Computational Intelligence, LCI,
in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
- Computer Vision
I am mainly interested in computer vision algorithms that are applicable to
robotics. I have recently done work on
descriptors which I presented at ICCV'07, and also the
MSCR feature detector which I presented at CVPR'07. Earlier work includes the CCF feature
detector, and the blob feature detector.
- Active Perception and Learning
I believe that learning is an essential component of seeing systems. Learning
becomes even more interesting when it is embodied, because this allows the
system to act, and when acting we can make use of the knowledge that we
caused something. Most recent work in this category is within the
project, and the robotic eye model project. Earlier I have done work on active
learning, and active learning of saccades via motion prediction.
- Developmental Robotics
How to learn on several scales (both time and abstraction), and how to
incorporate knowledge from animal behaviour studies (ethology) and cognitive psychology
into robotic systems also interest me.
