Dr. Gary Rost Bradski is a consulting professor in the CS department at Stanford University AI Lab where he mentors robotics,
machine learning and computer vision research. He is also Senior Scientist at Willow Garage, a recently founded
robotics research institute/incubator. He has a BS degree in EECS from U.C. Berkeley and a PhD from Boston University.
He has 20 years of industrial experience applying machine learning and computer vision spanning option trading operations
at First Union National Bank, to computer vision at Intel Research to machine learning in Intel Manufacturing and several
startup companies in between. Gary started the Open Source Computer Vision Library, the statistical
Machine Learning Library (MLL comes with OpenCV), and the Probabilistic Network Library (PNL). OpenCV is used
around the world in research, government and commercially. The vision libraries helped develop a notable
part of the commercial Intel performance primitives library (IPP).
Gary also organized the vision team for Stanley, the Stanford robot that won the DARPA Grand Challenge
autonomous race across the desert for a $2M team prize and helped found the Stanford AI Robotics project
