"What I cannot create, I do not understand." - R. Feynman

The mind is a fascinating piece of matter. Is it made up of discrete, interacting components or an emergent phenomena ruled by simple laws? Or something completely different?

I am driven by the thought of replicating the processes which allow us to see and understand the world.

At the moment I specialize in view invariant representation learning from monocular video. Which helps us understand questions such as: How do we represent context and recognize intent? How can we teach robots to be better team members?
