Sameh Khamis


I am a senior scientist and a founding team member at perceptiveIO, Inc. New

I work on the research and development of large-scale, real-time solutions for real-world computer vision and machine learning problems, leveraging all aspects of system design, statistical learning, probabilistic models, and discrete and continuous optimization.

Before that I was a researcher in the Interactive 3D Technologies (I3D) group at Microsoft Research, where I worked on Holoportation [Video], a new type of 3D capture technology that allows high-quality 3D models of people to be reconstructed, compressed and transmitted anywhere in the world in real time. The press coverage includes ZDNet, Gizmodo, VentureBeat, Mashable, Engadget, Gamasutra, Wired, and many more. This technology was running live on stage at TED 2016. New

I received a PhD in computer science from the University of Maryland, where I worked with Larry Davis at the Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS). I received a MSc in computer science from the University of Western Ontario, where I was advised by Yuri Boykov.
