Laurens van der Maaten
I am a Research Director at Facebook AI Research (FAIR). I lead FAIR’s New York site. My research focuses on machine learning and computer vision. Before, I worked as an Assistant Professor (with tenure) at Delft University of Technology, as a post-doctoral researcher at UC San Diego, and as a Ph.D. student at Tilburg University.
I am interested in a variety of topics in machine learning and computer vision. Currently, I am working on embedding models, large-scale weakly supervised learning, visual reasoning, and cost-sensitive learning.
