Katerina Fragkiadaki

I am interested in building machines that understand the stories that videos portray, and, inversely, in using videos to teach machines about the world. The pen-ultimate goal is to build a machine that understands movie plots, and the ultimate goal is to build a machine that would want to watch Bergman over this.

I am an Assistant Professor in the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon. Prior to joining MLD's faculty I spent three wonderful years as a post doctoral researcher first at UC Berkeley working with Jitendra Malik and then at Google Research in Mountain View working with the video group. I completed my Ph.D. in GRASP, UPenn with Jianbo Shi. I did my undergraduate studies at the National Technical University of Athens and before that I was in Crete.

Dear prospective graduate students: There is no need to email, please submit your application to our School following the links here: MLD Ph.D. or R.I. Ph.D.
