Neill Campbell is a Royal Society Industry Fellow and Reader in Machine Learning and Visual Computing at the University of Bath. He is an Honorary Associate Professor in Vision and Imaging Science at University College London and Chair of the British Machine Vision Association (the UK body for computer vision).
He works closely with companies in the creative industries and is keen to encourage collaboration and translation of ideas and practice between academic and industrial research and development.
His research involves learning models of shape (2D and 3D), appearance and dynamics from images. In particular, performing this in an automatic or interactive fashion that allows use in a variety of applications without requiring users to have technical computing expertise. He also works on machine learning problems where data are scarce or expensive to obtain (e.g. annotations from expert clinicians) and when uncertainty in the resulting output is important (e.g. medical and safety applications).
