James Hays  

His research interests span computer vision, robotics, and machine learning. He works on problems such as object detection, tracking, and localization. His research often involves finding new data sources to exploit (e.g. geotagged imagery) or creating new data sets where none existed (e.g. sketches or grasp contact maps).

Before joining Georgia Tech, he was the Manning Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Brown University. He was a postdoc at MIT with Antonio Torralba, completed my Ph.D. at Carnegie Mellon University with Alexei Efros, and received my B.S. from Georgia Tech. He is the recipient of the Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship and the NSF CAREER award.
