Research overview
  • <p>Stefan is interested in the intellectual challenge of visual processing with a view to automated multimedia understanding.<br /><br />Applications of this research include near-duplicate detection of images: For example, finding which lecture videos use a particular powerpoint slide that a student struggles with (and where that slide appears in the video). Or recognising a museum exhibit in an online catalogue from a smart-phone image, thus linking the real world with the online world through taking a picture.<br /><br />Machine learning from regularities in image sets is another of his research strands: for example machine learning analysis of own meals might be able to give insight into lifestyle, habits or even calorific intake. Another of his research interests is mining large media repositories, for example tens of thousands of hours of TV news, which might discover<br />significant aspects of our culture or society.

  • Stefan Rüger is a Professor of Knowledge Media at the Knowledge Media Institute of The Open University, a Honorary Professor (2009-2014) at the Department of Computer Science, University of Waikato, and used to be a Visiting Principal Research Fellow (2006-2009) at the Department of Computing, Imperial College London. He holds a diploma in Theoretical Physics (equiv to MSc) and received his PhD in the field of computing for his work on the theory of artificial neural networks. Between 1999 and 2004 he held a prestigious EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowhip at Imperial College London, where he carved out his academic career from PostDoc (1997) to Reader in Multimedia and Information Systems (2005). His research has evolved over the years from theory of artificial neural networks over data mining and knowledge management to applications in multimedia search engines. At the Knowledge Media Institute he is responsible for the Multimedia and Information Systems area; he chairs the UK Multimedia Knowledge Management research network and was Principal Investigator for The Open University in the European funded Pharos project (2007-2009) amongst other projects.
