Jan Kautz

Jan leads the Learning & Perception Research team at NVIDIA, working predominantly on computer vision and machine learning problems — from low-level vision (denoising, super-resolution, computational photography), geometric vision (structure from motion, SLAM, optical flow) to high-level vision (detection, recognition, classification), as well as fundamental machine learning algorithms. Before joining NVIDIA in 2013, Jan was a tenured faculty member at University College London. He holds a BSc in Computer Science from University of Erlangen-Nürnberg (1999), an MMath from the University of Waterloo (1999), received his PhD from the Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik (2003), and worked as a post-doc at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2003-2006). A full publication list is available on his web-page.

Jan was program co-chair of the Eurographics Symposium on Rendering 2007, program chair of the IEEE Symposium on Interactive Ray-Tracing 2008, program co-chair for Pacific Graphics 2011, and program chair of CVMP 2012. He co-chaired Eurographics 2014 and is on the editorial board of IEEE Transactions on Visualization & Computer Graphics and The Visual Computer.
