Matti Kalevi Pietikäinen is a computer scientist. He is currently Professor (emer.) in the Center for Machine Vision and Signal Analysis, University of Oulu, Finland. His research interests are in texture-based computer vision, face analysis, affective computing, biometrics, and vision-based perceptual interfaces. He was Director of the Center for Machine Vision Research,[1] and Scientific Director of Infotech Oulu.[2]

Biography[edit]

Pietikäinen received the Doctor of Science in Technology degree from University of Oulu, Finland, in 1982. From 1980 to 1981 and from 1984 to 1985 he was with the Computer Vision Laboratory at the University of Maryland, working with a pioneer of the computer image analysis, Professor Azriel Rosenfeld. After the first visit, he established computer vision research at University of Oulu.[3]

He has authored over 350 refereed scientific publications, which have been frequently cited.[4] He has made pioneering contributions to local binary patterns (LBP) methodology, texture-based image and video analysis, and facial image analysis.

He was Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (TPAMI), Pattern Recognition, IEEE Transactions on Forensics and Security, and Image and Vision Computing journals. Currently he serves as Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Biometrics, Behavior and Identity Science, and Guest Editor for special issues of IEEE TPAMI and International Journal of Computer Vision.

In 2011, he was named an IEEE Fellow for his contributions to texture and facial image analysis for machine vision.[5] Already in 1994, he received the IAPR Fellow nomination for contributions to machine vision and its applications in industry and service to the IAPR.[6] In 2018, he received the IAPR's King-Sun Fu Prize for fundamental contributions to texture analysis and facial image analysis.[7] He was named a Highly Cited Researcher by Clarivate Analytics in 2018.[8]
