Adrien Gaidon, PhD

I lead the Machine Learning Research team at the Toyota Research Institute (TRI) in Los Altos, CA, USA. My research focuses on scaling up ML for Robot Autonomy, spanning Scene and Behavior Understanding, Simulation for Deep Learning, 3D Computer Vision, and Self-Supervised Learning (cf. a short bio below). Outside of work, I spend time with my wife, daughter, and the mountains (I love camping, climbing, and snowboarding). You can find my publications, talks, and CV on this site.
