Prof. Tony Lindeberg
KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden
Tony Lindeberg is a Professor of Computer Science — Computer Vision at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. He was born in 1964, received his MSc degree in 1987, his PhD degree in 1991, became docent in 1996, and was appointed professor in 2000. He was a Research Fellow at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences between 2000 and 2010.
His research interests in computational vision relate to scale-space theory, image features, object recognition, spatio-temporal recognition, focus-of-attention and computational modelling of biological vision. He has developed theories and methodologies for continuous and discrete scale-space representation, visual and auditory receptive fields, detection of image features and salient image structures, automatic scale selection, scale-invariant image features, affine invariant features, affine and Galilean normalization, temporal and spatio-temporal scale-space concepts as well as spatial and spatio-temporal image descriptors for image-based recognition.
He does also work on computational modelling of hearing and has previously worked on topics in medical image analysis, brain activation and gesture recognition. He is author of the book Scale-Space Theory in Computer Vision.
