IVPL collaborates with TTI-C's Prof. Karen Livescu

Under the guidance of Professor Aggelos K. Katsaggelos, the IVPL has begun a fruitful collaboration with Professor Karen Livescu of the Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago. Professors Katsaggelos and Livescu are working closely with IVPL student Louis Terry on cutting edge dynamic Bayesian networks (DBNs) for Audio-Visual Speech Recognition.

Professor Livescu joined TTI-C in February of 2008 and is currently an Assistant Professor. She completed her PhD in 2005 at MIT in the Spoken Language Systems group of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and was a post-doctoral lecturer in the EECS department of MIT from 2005 through 2007.

New students will have the opportunity to work closely with Professor Livescu through current and future joint ventures.

We are extremely excited to work with Professor Livescu and expect great things!
