Roberto Cipolla

Topics

Computer Vision, Deep Learning.

Biography

Professor Cipolla is Professor of Information Engineering at the University of Cambridge (since 2000) and Director of Toshiba’s Cambridge Research Laboratory (since 2007).

After reading Engineering at the University of Cambridge (Queens’ College, 1984) he completed his graduate research in Computer Vision and Robotics at the University of Oxford (Balliol College, 1991) where he received D.Phil. degree for his work on 3D reconstruction from smooth 2D contours.

Cipolla’s research interests are in the reconstruction, registration and recognition of three-dimensional objects from images. These include novel algorithms for the recovery of accurate 3D shape, visual localisation and semantic segmentation. Computer vision technology from his group is being exploited in new products by Toshiba (face recognition for access control in varying illumination and a gesture interface for laptops) and Wayve Technologies (semantic segmentation for autonomous driving).

He has authored two books: Active Visual Inference of Surface Shape in 1995 and Visual Motion of Curves and Surfaces (with Peter Giblin) in 2000; edited twelve books on computer vision and published over 400 articles in computer vision and related fields. See https://mi.eng.cam.ac.uk/~cipolla/publications_selected.htm

Cipolla was elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2010; a Distinguished Fellow of the British Machine Vision Association in 2013; and a Fellow of the International Association for Pattern Recognition in 2020.
