Object-Oriented Learning (OOL): Perception, Representation, and Reasoning

International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML)

Friday July 17, 2020, Virtual Workshop


Fabien Baradel is a PhD student at INSA-Lyon. His research interests include causality, perception, and video understanding. His recent work is on counterfactual learning of physical dynamics.
Jody Culham is a Professor in the Department of Psychology at Western University in London, Ontario. Her research focuses on how vision is used for perception and to guide actions in human observers. In order to answer these questions, she makes use of several techniques from cognitive neuroscience, including functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and behavioral testing.
Moira Dillon is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at New York University (NYU). Her main research question is how the physical world in which we live shapes the abstract world in which we think. She addresses this question by exploring the origin and development of uniquely human geometric understanding.
Klaus Greff is a PhD student at IDSIA. His research interests include perceptual grouping, object-centric representation learning. His recent work is on unsupervised object-based perception models.
Thomas Kipf is a research scientist at Google Brain. His research focuses on graph neural networks, reasoning, and unsupervised object-oriented representations.
Igor Mordatch is a research scientist at Google Brain. His research focuses on model-based RL, multi-agent RL, and object-based concept learning using energy-based models.
Vincent Sitzmann is a PhD student at Stanford University. His research interest lies in neural scene representations - the way neural networks learn to represent information on our 3D world. He is interested in learning to reason about our world given visual observations, such as inferring a complete model of a scene with information on geometry, material, lighting etc. from only a few observations.
Linda Smith is a Distinguished Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Indiana University. Her main research interests include the interaction of perceptual, cognitive, and linguistic factors in the psychology of objects and dimensions from a developmental perspective.
