Ian Reid is an Australian Laureate Fellow, Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE), former Rhodes Scholar, and Professor of Computer Science at the University of Adelaide. He is the Centre’s Deputy Director, University of Adelaide Node Leader and leader of the Semantic Representations research program.

His research interests range across computer vision and are currently focused on life-long visual learning, and developing high-level representations for image and video understanding, especially those that can be computed and queried sufficiently rapidly to enable real-time robotic decision making and control.  He has previous published widely in areas such as active vision, visual SLAM, visual geometry, human motion capture and intelligent visual surveillance.  He has published over 293 papers on these topics in major journals and refereed conferences, has more than 16,000 citations and a h-index of 65.

He is a member of the Australian Academy of Science (AAS) National Committee for Information and Communication Sciences, Interim co-chair for the AAS Future of Autonomous Systems, and General Chair for the 14th Asian Conference on Computer Vision (ACCV) to be held in Perth, Australia in December 2018. He has previously served on the editorial boards of IEEE T-PAMI, Computer Vision and Image Understanding, and Image and Vision Computing Journal, and has led a number of EU, UK and Australian Research Council sponsored research projects. He was the driving force behind the Centre’s successful LIEF (Linkage Infrastructure Equipment and Facilities) grant awarded by the Australian Research Council in 2016 for a new deep learning supercomputer to power the Centre needs to train deeper and larger models and to handle large numbers of parameters and big data.
