CHIHO CHOI, Ph.D.

Scientist at Honda Research Institute USA

Computer Vision · Machine Learning

My research interest lies at the intersection of machine learning and computer vision, focusing on computational learning for understanding and predicting human behavior in an everyday environment. In this area, I boradly build machine learning algorithms for computer vision systems.

If you are interested in an internship position for human behavior prediction, please check this link (strong publication record preferred).
