Personal profile

Research Interests

Professor Robertson researches new underpinning machine learning methods for visual analytics and his principal research focus is activity recognition in real video. He started his career in the UK Scientific Civil Service with DERA (2000-2002) and QinetiQ (2002-2007) and was the 1851 Royal Commission Fellow at Oxford University (2003–2006).

His autonomous systems, defence and security research is extensive. Highlights include 5-year EPSRC Programmes UDRC Phase 2 (2012-2017) and 3 (2018-2023), and the EPSRC RAS CDT (2013-2018). He is regular contributor to the major computer vision and machine learning conferences including CVPR, ICCV and ECCV, as well as AAAI.

Neil is also a leader in technology innovation and is the technical co-founder of two vision companies which have attracted large investment. Through this work he collaborates closely with major technology organisations including Microsoft, Qualcomm and Bosch.
