I am excited about using computer vision and machine
learning techniques to understand the world. I have
focused on a variety of problems, including time-lapse
understanding, environmental monitoring, remote
sensing, medical imaging, and video surveillance.

Nathan Jacobs earned a Ph.D. in Computer Science at Washington University in St. Louis (2010). Since then, he has been a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Kentucky. Dr. Jacobs' research area is computer vision; his specialty is developing learning-based algorithms and systems for processing large-scale image collections. His current focus is on developing techniques for mining information about people and the natural world from geotagged imagery, including images from social networks, publicly available outdoor webcams, and satellites. His research has been funded by NSF, NIH, DARPA, IARPA, NGA, ARL, AFRL, and Google.
