Brief Biography
Professor Masatoshi Okutomi received a B.Eng. degree from the Department of Mathematical Engineering and Information Physics, the University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan, in 1981 and an M.Eng. degree from the Department of Control Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo, Japan, in 1983.
He joined Canon Research Center, Canon Inc., Tokyo, Japan, in 1983. From 1987 to 1990, he was a visiting research scientist in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA. In 1993, he received a Ph.D. degree for his research on stereo vision from Tokyo Institute of Technology. Since 1994, he has been with Tokyo Institute of Technology, where he is currently a Professor of the Department of Systems and Control Engineering, the School of Engineering.
He has published about five hundred papers and filed more than one hundred and ninety patents (as of November, 2016). His research interests include both theoretical and practical aspects of computer vision and image processing.
