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.

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.
