Frank Dellaert's Summary

Frank Dellaert is a Professor in the School of Interactive Computing (within the College of Computing), at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He obtained his Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University in 2001. Professor Dellaert’s research focuses on probabilistic methods in Robotics and Computer Vision. His approach is to pair probabilistic, model-based reasoning with randomized approximation methods to attain efficiency. He has applied Markov chain Monte Carlo sampling methodologies in a variety of novel settings, including the Monte Carlo localization method for estimating and tracking the pose of robots, now a standard and popular tool in mobile robotics.
Prof. Dellaert has published more than 60 technical articles in journals and refereed conference proceedings, as well as several book chapters. Recently, he won a prestigious NSF CAREER award from the National Science Foundation.
An innovation he introduced at Georgia Tech is the use of functional programming for robotics research and education. Functional languages embody a lot of the advancements in computer science from the past few decades, and it is one of Professor Dellaert’s goals to educate students of the fact that languages like ML are well suited to robotics and vision research, and this through a hands-on approach.
Prof. Dellaert acts as the primary adviser for 6 doctoral students, and each semester works with a number of M.Sc. students and undergraduates in the BORG lab. Several of these undergraduate students over the past years were recipients of the Presidential Undergraduate Research Award (PURA) at Georgia Tech. Professor Dellaert serves on numerous conference program committees, including ICCV, CVPR, ICRA, NIPS, ICML, and AAAI, and is an associate editor for TPAMI, the most cited journal in computer vision.He was be the local arrangements chair for Robotics: Systemes & Science (RSS) in 2007, and the general chair for 3DPVT 2008, both held in Atlanta.
