Professorial Appointment for Cees Snoek
Cees Snoek has been appointed professor of Intelligent Sensory Information Systems at the UvA Faculty of Science.
Cees Snoek is an expert on video and image recognition. A huge quantity of visual information, in the form of digital images and videos, is being created in the world today. One major challenge for artificial intelligence is to make all of this content accessible. This challenge is the primary objective of the Intelligent Sensory Information Systems Lab at the UvA, which Cees Snoek will head in his capacity as professor. Together with his group, he will focus on semantic image understanding, image and video search, and interactive image analysis.
In addition to conducting and directing research, Snoek will teach Bachelor’s and Master’s students about artificial intelligence, focusing particularly on visual search engines and computer vision by learning.
