Computer Vision & Machine Learning

I am fortunate to enjoy collaborations with colleagues who not only have outstanding technical abilities, but are truly wonderful people too.

Prof. Wojciech Chojnacki

At the University of Adelaide my closest collaborator is Prof. Wojciech Chojnacki, a mathematician, state professor and most of all dear friend.

Working with Prof. Wojciech Chojnacki, I seek solutions to numerous problems in multiple-view geometry including: (1) deriving constraints that emerge in multiple-view geometry and incorporating these constraints into the projective parameter estimation process; (2) devising new estimation methods that are consistent and unbiased; and (3) designing novel non-linear optimisation procedures for computer vision problems as alternatives to Levenberg-Marquardt with various beneficial properties.

Prof. Jules R. Tapamo

If you are interested in studying computer vision and image processing in South Africa then I highly recommend that you seek out Prof. Jules R. Tapamo at the University of Kwazulu-Natal in Durban. I was his student for many years, all the way from undergraduate to a masters degree. He is an absolute inspiration for me and I am sure he will inspire you too. He always has the best interest of his students in mind and heart.

Together with Prof. Jules R. Tapamo and Prof. Wojciech Chojnacki, I am trying to ascertain the utility of exploiting the Riemannian manifold structure of various computer vision problems.

Prof. Ernest Fokoue

If you find yourself in USA New York, and you have an interest in machine learning and data mining please seek out Prof. Ernest Fokoue at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Not only does he have a deep understanding of the subject, but more than that he is passionate teacher and will do everything to make sure that as a student you grow in your own knowledge and understanding. When you meet Ernest you will realise that there is whole new dimension to the pursuit of knowledge and understanding that is unfortunately missing in most other academics out there.

Together with Prof. Ernest Fokoue and Prof. Wojciech Chojnacki, I am exploring techniques for parsimonious estimation in a high-dimensional errors-in-variables setting.
