Research Staff Member - Video Analytics
Cambridge Research Center, Cambridge, MA USA



I am a principal investigator at the IBM-MIT Laboratory for Brain-inspired Multi-Media Machine Comprehension (BM3C). The goal of this center is to develop capabilities towards fully automated video comprehension. To that end we are working closely with researchers from MIT's Brain and Cognitive Sciences department as well as the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL). 

Before I moved to the Cambridge Research Center I was at the Haifa Research Lab where I held several managerial and technical leadership positions. In my last role I was the manager in charge of IBM Debating Technologies. 

In 2005 I received a PhD in computer science from the Hebrew Univerity in Jerusalem, Israel. Following that I was a postdoctoral fellow and a lecturer at Harvard University and MIT. My research interests are in computational complexity, foundations of cryptography and machine learning with applications to natural language processing and computer vision.
