Biography

Tamara L. Berg: I received my B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 2001. I then completed a PhD in Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley in 2007 under the advisorship of Professor David Forsyth as a member of the Berkeley Computer Vision Group. Afterward, I spent 1 year as a research scientist at Yahoo! Research. From 2008-2013 I was an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science department at Stony Brook University and core member of the consortium for Digital Art, Culture, and Technology (cDACT). I joined the computer science department at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill (UNC) in Fall 2013 and am currently a tenured Associate Professor. I am the recipient of an NSF Career award, 2 google faculty awards, the 2013 Marr Prize, and the 2016 UNC Hettleman Award. *************************************************************************************************************************************** Alex Berg: I am an associate professor at UNC Chapel Hill as of July 2016 and joined UNC in August 2013. I am also the CTO of Shopagon Inc. Previously I was an assistant professor at Stony Brook University. I completed a Ph.D. at U.C. Berkeley with Jitendra Malik, and have had the chance to work with many wonderful people. I am interested in all aspects of computer vision and related problems in other fields. My thesis was on shape and object recognition in images using a new take on deformable templates. I also work on large scale machine learning algorithms for object recognition and detection, image retrieval, recognizing and synthesizing human action in video, recovering human body poses from photographs, detecting and identifying human faces in images, detecting vehicles in images, and more...
