Martial Hebert

Martial Hebert is the Director of the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. His work is in the areas of computer vision, perception for autonomous systems, and machine learning. Hebert has played a role in such high-profile projects as NavLab, a pioneering program for self-driving vehicles, and in leading the development of perception capabilities for personal care robots in the Quality of Life Technology Center. His research interests include computer vision, especially recognition in images and video data; model building and object recognition from 3-D data; and perception for mobile robots and intelligent vehicles. His group has developed approaches to object recognition and scene analysis in images, 3-D point clouds and video sequences. His most recent work addresses reducing supervision in machine learning through small sample learning techniques.
