Biography

Prof. Paolo Remagnino (Scopus,  Google scholar, ResearcherID)

With thirty years’ experience in Computer Vision research, Professor Remagnino founded the Robot Vision Team (RoViT) 15 years ago. Since its inception, Prof. Remagnino has led the team with a number of junior and senior colleagues, postdoctoral and PhD researchers. RoViT is one of the most successful research teams in the Department of Computer Science at Kingston University. Professor Remagnino leads research in RoViT, primarily on the development of innovative methods for image and video interpretation, making wide use of pattern recognition, machine and deep learning and distributed intelligence techniques. Professor Remagnino has published over 160 scientific articles in international conferences and high impact journals. Prof. Remagnino has secured over €2m in the last five years, funded by most scientific funding bodies, including the NATEP, Innovate UK, EPSRC, MRC, Leverhulme Trust, EU (FP7 and H2020) and the US DHS. He was a key Faculty contributor in the last three UK research assessment exercises, a quinquennial UK government assessment of Universities. At present, Prof. Remagnino is the principal investigator of two projects on video analytics for security with fixed and drone mounted cameras. Three strands of research are currently investigated: image and video understanding, computational botany and machine learning, with particular emphasis on deep learning techniques.
