Kazuto Nakashima

Bio — I am a second-year PhD student at Kyushu University, Japan. I am with the Real-World Informative Robotics Laboratory under the supervision of Prof. Ryo Kurazume. I received a BE degree in 2015 and an ME degree in 2017, both from Kyushu University. My research interests are in computer vision, machine learning, and robotics, with a focus on deep multi-modal learning. In particular, I am interested in the areas of automatic lifelogging in an intelligent room and outdoor scene understanding.
