My name is Behzad Tabibian. I am a PhD student at Empirical Inference Department at Max Planck Institute. My main area of interests are Machine Learning and Statistical Learning and their applications in Computational Photography and Social Network.
I obtained my masters degree from university of Pittsburgh and my Bachelor from University of Edinburgh. I also completed two internships at Amazon Seattle and Berlin under supervision of Ralf Herbrich in summers of 2013 and 2014. Before I became interested in Machine Learning I worked on many robotics projects. From 2008 until late 2011 I contributed to International RoboCup competitions both as a participant and as technical committee member.
I enjoy reading books and swimming in my leisure time. Most significant area I enjoy reading and talking about is philosophy of science and its relationship to our understanding of the environment we inhabit.
Our goal is to understand the principles of Perception, Action and Learning in autonomous systems that successfully interact with complex environments and to use this understanding to design future systems
