Driving directions to the department.
I am a Professor in the
Computer Science & Engineering
, the Director of The Temporal
Dynamics of Learning Center, and the Director of
Ph.D. Program in Cognitive Science.
This means I can now go barefoot and there is nothing they
can do about it! ;-)
I am a member of the AI Group at UCSD. My
research group, Gary's
Unbelievable Research Unit, publishes unbelievable research. Our
research is strongly interdisciplinary. It concerns using neural
networks and other computational models applied to problems in
and artificial intelligence, engineering and biology. I have had
using them for such disparate tasks as modeling how children acquire
studying how lobsters chew, and nonlinear data compression. Most
recently I have worked on face and object recognition, visual salience
and visual attention, and modeling early visual cortex.
