Biography

Jiebo Luo joined the University of Rochester in Fall 2011 after over fifteen years at Kodak Research Laboratories, where he was a Senior Principal Scientist leading research and advanced development. He has been involved in numerous technical conferences, including serving as the program co-chair of ACM Multimedia 2010 and IEEE CVPR 2012. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Multimedia, and has served on the editorial boards of the IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology, Pattern Recognition, Machine Vision and Applications, and Journal of Electronic Imaging. He has authored over 200 technical papers and 70 US patents. Dr. Luo is a Fellow of the SPIE, IEEE, and IAPR.
IEEE Advancing Technology for Humanity                                

His research spans image processing, computer vision, machine learning, data mining, medical imaging, and ubiquitous computing. He has been an advocate for contextual inference in semantic understanding of visual data, and continues to push the frontiers in this area by incorporating geo-location context and social context. A recent research thrust focuses on exploiting social media for machine learning, data mining, and human-computer interaction, for example, mining the wisdom of crowds for social, political, and economic prediction and forecasting. He has published extensively in these fields with over 220 papers and 80 US patents

Note to Class of 2018 students: Please use my URCS email to set up appointments with me.

Note to Perspetive Graduate Students:
Applicants are expected to have strong skills in both programming and mathematics, as well as research experience in closely related areas. Grades alone won't cut it. "I worked on a gazillion of projects" (but have no evidence) is a no-no. Research publications in ranked venues of computer vision, machine learning, or data mining is a plus (and the only reason you may contact me directly). Sorry but generic spams will be ignored.

To apply, check

We do not host summer interns. Please do not send such requests.
