Through Looking Forward @ Johns Hopkins, JHU’s most distinguished scholars are engaging the scholarly community by sharing cutting-edge scholarship during the COVID-19 shutdown. The series builds intellectual and social bridges to fill gaps left during this time of physical social distancing, and excite the scholarly community to bring new ideas back to campus with them when our campuses fully re-open.
During Looking Forward, a distinguished scholar from the university will give a talk presenting their research, followed by time for questions.
Alan Yuille is a leading mathematician and computer scientist developing mathematical models of vision and cognition for computers that, when given images or videos, can reconstruct the 3D structure of a scene. These models are intended primarily for designing artificial vision systems, the applications of which include assistance for people with vision impairment. Yuille’s research also includes medical image analysis, artificial intelligence, and neural networks. His current endeavor, the Felix Project, aims to create computer programs that can learn to detect signs of pancreatic cancer in CT scans earlier and with more accuracy than humans, improving patient outcomes with early detection and treatment.
