He is the founder and leader of the PERCEPTION team.
Radu’s research interests cover computational vision, audio signal processing, audio-visual scene analysis, machine learning, and robotics. He has authored over 160 scientific publications.
Radu has pioneered work in computer vision using range data (or depth images) and has developed a number of principles and methods at the cross-roads of computer vision and robotics. In 2006, he started to develop audio-visual fusion and recognition techniques in conjunction with human-robot interaction.
Radu Horaud was the scientific coordinator of the European Marie Curie network VISIONTRAIN (2005-2009), STREP projects POP (2006-2008) and HUMAVIPS (2010-2013), and the principal investigator of a collaborative project between INRIA and Samsung’s Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) on computer vision algorithms for 3D television (2010-2013). In 2013 he was awarded an ERC Advanced Grant for his five year project VHIA (2014-2019).
