Micha Livne (University of Toronto, Vector Institute, Seraph Computer Vision Labs)

Micha is a PhD candidate towards the end of his PhD, in the [Computational Vision Group][uoft-cv] / Artificial Intelligence Lab, part of the [Department of Computer Science][dcs] at University of Toronto, and in the [Vector Institute][vector], Toronto. He is supervised by prof. [David Fleet][fleet], and has been concentrating for the better part of the last decade on machine learning and optimization problems. Specifically on 3D video tracking combined with physical models. Micha holds a BSc. in Electrical Engineering and a BSc. in Physics from the [Technion, Israel Institute of Technology][technion], both with Summa Cum Laude honors (top 3% of his class). He obtained his MSc. from University of Toronto under [David][fleet]'s supervision, where he researched inferring attributes, such as gender, weight, happiness and anxiety level, from motion capture data and from video tracking. Micha also founded a Computer Vision/Machine Learning lab, with the goal of pushing ahead CV/ML research, while giving smaller start-ups (who typically cannot afford to hire ML researchers) accessibility to one of the biggest revolutions that mankind is about to experience. He also believes that the social aspect of that revolution is ignored, by large. As part of his efforts for a better future for all, he is working to encourage an open discussion about the social implications of the AI revolution, in order reduce fears from AI, and replace it with openness and better understanding of what possibilities lies ahead. In his spare time he enjoys hiking, canoeing, SUP, bike riding, skiing, ice skating, or basically every outdoor/indoor sport activity he finds the time to put into.
