Santosh Divvala
Research Scientist


I am a Research Scientist at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2) led by Oren Etzioni. I also collaborate with Ali Farhadi and Carlos Guestrin at the University of Washington. I received a PhD in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University, where I worked under the supervision of Martial Hebert and Alyosha Efros.

 My interests are in Computer Vision, specifically the Image Understanding problem. My approach to this problem takes a Machine Learning perspective, leveraging today's Internet-scale image and video databases. The results of my research apply to Robotics (building systems that can aid us in better interpreting and reasoning about the world) & to Computational Photography (enhancing the way we relish our photo collections).
