What's your favorite CV/ML algorithm?

Active Appearance Models, it's what my dissertation with based on, although I'll finding Random Ferns Classifiers a rather cute idea. I also find deep networks and convolutional neural networks interesting.

To build better connections with others in this field and possibly make Iowa City a hub for Computer Vision.


Graduated from the U Iowa with a doctorate in Electrical Engineering specialized in medical image processing. Turned down a tenure track position at VCU after realizing I could make significantly more being a hired gun. Gained employees.
