Pietro Perona is the Allen E. Puckett Professor of Electrical Engineering at Caltech. He directs Computation and Neural Systems (www.cns.caltech.edu), a PhD program centered on the study of biological brains and intelligent machines. Professor Perona's research centers on vision. He has contributed to the theory of partial differential equations for image processing and boundary formation, and to modeling the early visual system's function. He is currently interested in visual categories and visual recognition.
Jingdong Wang is a Senior Researcher of Microsoft Research Asia. His research focuses on efficient CNN architecture design, human pose estimation, semantic segmentation, image classification, object detection, large-scale indexing, person re-identification, and salient object detection. He has been serving/served as an Associate Editor of IEEE TPAMI, IEEE TMM and IEEE TCSVT, and area chair (or SPC) of some prestigious conferences like CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, ACM MM, IJCAI, and AAAI.
