Bio: C. Lawrence Zitnick is a senior researcher in the Interactive Visual Media group at Microsoft Research, and is an affiliate associate professor at the University of Washington. He is interested in a broad range of topics related to visual object recognition. His current interests include object detection, semantically interpreting visual scenes, and the use of human debugging to identify promising areas for future research in object recognition and detection. He developed the PhotoDNA technology used by Microsoft, Facebook, Google, and various law enforcement agencies to combat illegal imagery on the web. Previous research topics include computational photography, stereo vision, and image-based rendering. Before joining MSR, he received the PhD degree in robotics from Carnegie Mellon University in 2003. In 1996, he co-invented one of the first commercial portable depth cameras.
