Svebor Karaman received a master’s degree in computer engineering from the University of Bordeaux and a engineer diploma from the ENSEIRB in 2008. He has obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Bordeaux in 2011, with his thesis entitled “Indexing of Activities in Wearable Videos : Application to Epidemiological Studies of Aged Dementia”. He has joined the MICC – Media Integration and Communication Center, at the beginning of 2012 as a postdoctoral researcher.
His research interests focus on computer vision, semantic concepts recognition in images and videos, multimedia information retrieval and problematics related to the use wearable videos. During his PhD thesis, he has worked on human activities recognition by Hidden Markov Models (HMM) in videos recorded from a wearable device. He also proposed an object recognition approach in the Bag-of-Visual-Words framework which integrates spatial information within semi-local features: the Graph-Words.
At the MICC, he is highly involved in the Mnemosyne project
