Research Synopsis 
My research field is computer vision. My research covers a wide range of topics within computer vision, including object recognition, detection, tracking, segmentation, and human action recognition in images and videos. My focus is on learning visual recognition models with limited human supervision. A massive and ever growing amount of digital content (images and videos) is available today. To address queries about such massive data, it is impractical to learn visual models by manually annotating every relevant concept, object, or action category in a representative sample of everyday situations. The aim is to develop novel visual recognition models that can efficiently scale to a large number of concepts without explicitly relying on spoon-fed supervision and data.
