Personal profile

Artistic and research interests

Ville Kyrki joined School of Electrical Engineering at Aalto University as an Associate Professor in 2012. He serves as the head of the Intelligent Robotics research group.

His research interests lie mainly in intelligent robotic systems and robotic vision with a particular emphasis on developing methods and systems that cope with imperfect knowledge and uncertain senses. His published research covers feature extraction and tracking in computer vision, visual servoing, tactile sensing, robotic grasping, sensor fusion (especially fusion of vision and other senses), planning under uncertainty, and machine learning related to the previous. His research has been published in numerous forums in the area, including IEEE Transactions on Robotics, International Journal of Robotics Research, IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, IEEE Transactions on Haptics, and IEEE Transactions on Image Processing.
