Today I was officially bound to my research advisor, who obtained his PhD in 2003. The other person that I was debating working with obtained his PhD in 1974. Youth = passion = new ideas.
I came to CMU wanting to work on high level vision tasks such as object detection/recognition and machine learning, and now I'm doing it. I should start planning for the future; I'll be out of here in no time.
I have to start working on my new research webpage at CMU. I will then update my new research directions.
