Steve Seitz has been named a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers “for contributions to three-dimensional computer vision.”
Steve’s research interests include many aspects of computer vision and computer graphics, particularly capturing the structure, appearance, and behavior of the real world from digital imagery. Steve was twice awarded the David Marr Prize for the best paper at the International Conference of Computer Vision, and has received an NSF Career Award, an ONR Young Investigator Award, and an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship. His work on PhotoTourism (with graduate student Noah Snavely and Microsoft researcher Rick Szeliski) was central to Microsoft’s Photosynth offering. He currently is on leave at Google Seattle working on a computer vision project.
Steve is the twelfth CSE faculty member to be named a Fellow of IEEE.
Congratulations Steve! (CSE professor Gaetano Borriello and Ph.D. alumna Fran Berman (currently Vice President for Research and Professor of Computer Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) also were named IEEE Fellow today.)
