Technology Lead / Principal Investigator
Scott Richardson finished his Masters degree in 2007 from the University of Colorado (CU) in Computer Science with an emphasis in Machine Learning. While at CU, he competed in the DARPA Learning Applied to Ground Robotics (LAGR) challenge in which he implemented path-planning algorithms for navigation through unstructured environments. Scott worked for Lockheed Martin as a Research Scientist before joining VSI in 2012. Scott has experience developing 3D scene modeling applications and is a member of the VXL developer team. As part of the DARPA Visual Media Reasoning (VMR) program he designed a Factor Graph Toolkit based on the GraphLab graph-parallel processing framework to perform distributed belief propagation. He is currently investigating Generative Adversarial Networks and their application to face detection.
