Zemel and Pitassi Visit Department


July 2001

Michael Mozer has two colleagues, Richard Zemel and Toniann Pitassi, visiting the Department and the Institute for Cognitive Science during the month of July. Both Zemel and Pitassi are from the University of Toronto.

Richard Zemel

Zemel's primary area of interest in research concerns computational theories of inference and learning in biological and artificial systems. Motivating questions include

  • How can artificial systems that can analyze complex, cluttered environments with the apparent ease and accuracy of natural systems be constructed?
  • How can novel visual items be processed efficiently, and how do the representations and processing mechanisms change as items become more familiar?

Toniann Pitassi

Pitassi's research interests cover a range of topics in complexity theory, proof complexity, lower bounds, feasible combinatorics, and probabilistic reasoning.
