Jungseock Joo

I'm a Principal Computer Vision and Machine Learning Engineer at Nvidia, working on perception for autonomous vehicles. I'm also an Associate Professor in Communication and Statistics at UCLA. I'm an interdisciplinary researcher, and my research has addressed a broad range of research questions and practical issues about AI in both technical and social aspects over the last 15 years. These topics include Human-AI interaction, face and gestures, collaborative robots, simulations, explainable and fair computer vision and deep learning.
I have worked in academia and industry and held positions in engineering and social sciences. My research has appeared in top venues in social sciences, engineering and computer science and has been supported by NSF, Hellman Fellowship, and industrial sponsors.
