Research

Professor Maji's research spans computer vision, machine learning and human computation. He is interested in building recognition architectures that are robust and applicable in real-world settings. For example, his research on part-based models called poselets led to several state-of-the-art results on analyzing images containing people. At TTI Chicago, he developed algorithms where humans and machines collaborate to solve difficult learning and inference problems. He actively collaborates with researchers worldwide and has published in the leading computer vision and machine learning conferences.
