Professional biography

Prof Stefan Rüger read Physics at Freie Universität Berlin and gained his PhD in Computer Science at Technische Universität Berlin for his work on the theory of artificial neural networks (1996). He carved out his academic career from postdoc to Reader at the Computing department of  Imperial College London (1997-2006), where he also held an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowship (1999-2004).  In 2006 Stefan became a Professor of Knowledge Media when he joined The Open University's Knowledge Media Institute to cover the area of Multimedia and Information Systems. He currently holds a Honorary Professorship from the University of Waikato, New Zealand, and has held Visiting Fellowships at Imperial College London and Cranfield University, UK, where he supervises MSc student projects.

Stefan is currently Associate Director (Research) for The Open University's Knowledge Media Institute.

Research interests

Stefan is interested in the intellectual challenge of visual processing with a view to automated multimedia understanding.

Applications of this research include near-duplicate detection of images: For example, finding which lecture videos use a particular powerpoint slide that a student struggles with (and where that slide appears in the video). Or recognising a museum exhibit in an online catalogue from a smart-phone image, thus linking the real world with the online world through taking a picture.

Machine learning from regularities in image sets is another of his research strands: for example machine learning analysis of own meals might be able to give insight into lifestyle, habits or even calorific intake. Another of his research interests is mining large media repositories, for example tens of thousands of hours of TV news, which might discover
significant aspects of our culture or society. For more details on his research, see http://people.kmi.open.ac.uk/stefan.
