Welcome to the personal home page of Jasper Uijlings. I obtained my PhD degree in December 2011 at the Intelligent Systems Lab Amsterdam, a research group within the Univerity of Amsterdam, under supervision of Remko Scha and Arnold Smeulders.
My main research focus is on object recognition. In this context I increased computational efficiency of the Bag-of-Words system (best paper award CIVR 2009, descriptor code now available) and investigated closely what aspects of the image is uses for classification (CVPR 2009). More recently I am working on improving image classification by using Bag-of-Word features on local image windows (ICCV 2011).
Other projects in which I am involved include event recognition (CVPR 2012) and action recognition through components (i.e. objects, scenes), Visual Distributional Semantics: improving the meaning of words through computer vision (ACM MM 2012), correlating visual semantic models with brain activity ((VL 2012 workshop), analysing emotion in art (ACM MM 2012), saliency estimation (JoV 2013), object instance recognition, temporal representations of video, and using motion in video for object recognition.
I was part of the team that won the Pascal VOC 2012 challenge for Detection and the Pascal VOC 2008 challenge for classification. We received a honorable mentions in 2009, 2010, and 2011 for either the classification or detection task.
