Takeo Kanade (金出 武雄 Kanade Takeo?, born October 24, 1945 in Hyōgo) is a Japanese computer scientist and one of the world's foremost researchers in computer vision. He is U.A. and Helen Whitaker Professor at Carnegie Mellon University. He has approximately 300 peer-reviewed academic publications and holds around 20 patents.[1]

Honors and achievements[edit]

  • In 1999 he was inducted as a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery.
  • In 2008 Kanade received the Bower Award and Prize for Achievement in Science from The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[2]
  • A special event called TK60: Celebrating Takeo Kanade's vision was held to commemorate his 60th birthday.[3] This event was attended by prominent computer vision researchers.
  • Elected member of National Academy of Engineering, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences
  • Elected member of American Association of Artificial Intelligence, Robotics Society of Japan, and Institute of Electronics and Communication Engineers of Japan
  • Marr Prize, 1990 for the paper Shape from Interreflections which he co-authored with Shree K. Nayar and Katsushi Ikeuchi[4]
  • Longuet-Higgins Prize for lasting contribution in computer vision at
    • CVPR 2006 for the paper "Neural Network-Based Face Detection"[5] coauthored with H. Rowley and S. Baluja[6]
    • CVPR 2008[7] for the paper "Probabilistic modeling of local appearance and spatial relationships for object recognition"[8] coauthored with H Schneiderman
  • The other awards he has received include the C&C Award, the Joseph Engelberger Award, FIT Funai Accomplishment Award, the Allen Newell Research Excellence Award, and the JARA Award.
  • He has served for many government, industrial, and university advisory boards, including the Aeronautics and Space Engineering Board (ASEB) of the National Research Council, NASA's Advanced Technology Advisory Committee, PITAC Panel for Transforming Healthcare Panel, and the Advisory Board of Canadian Institute for Advanced Research.[9]
