Dr. Simon Korman is a faculty member at the Computer Science department of the University of Haifa.
His research is in the field of Computer Vision, focused on geometry and matching oriented problems, which include establishing visual correspondence, template matching, camera pose estimation, and the recovery of 3D structure and motion in a scene. In particular, he is interested in the application of techniques from machine learning, robust estimation, randomized sampling and sublinear algorithms to such problems.
He received his PhD from Tel-Aviv University, during which he interned at Microsoft Research, Redmond. Following that, he spent four years as a post-doctoral researcher at the UCLA Computer Science department and at the Weizmann Institute Mathematics and Computer Science department.
Prior to his PhD studies, he held the position of Head of Algorithms at IoImage, a startup that specialized in developing intelligent video appliances, with real-time capabilities including detection and tracking of intruders and vehicles as well as other kinds of threat detection in surveillance camera video streams.
