Itzik Ben Shabat

I am currently a Visiting Research Fellow at the Australian National University (ANU) , working with  Prof. Stephen Gould (remote). My research focuses on analyzing 3D point clouds for applications like 3D reconstruction using implicit neural representations, geometry and normal estimation using deep learning, 3D  action understanding, as well as traditional 3D semantic understanding tasks like 3D classification, 3D segmentation, and 3D detection.

I am also the founder, creator and host of The Talking Papers Podcast, a new medium for disseminating research.

Currently, I am looking for my next career adventure . Hopefully something research and publication focused but definitely cutting edge.

10/23: IKEA Ego 3D Dataset accepted to WACV! 

02/23: Three Papers accepted to CVPR 2023! Congrats to Oren, Jiahao, and Chamin.

About Me

I am a dedicated researcher with a passion for advancing the field of computer vision, machine learning, and geometric algorithms. My current focus is on leveraging deep learning techniques to extract meaningful insights from 3D point clouds. My work encompasses a range of applications, including surface reconstruction, normal estimation, classification, detection, and action recognition.

One of my proudest achievements is the creation of the Talking Papers Podcast. This podcast, which I host, provides a platform for early career academics and PhD students to discuss their latest research. By making knowledge freely accessible to anyone with a computer and an internet connection, I aim to not only impact the technological world but also empower individuals to change their lives through education and information.

I am driven by a mission to develop practical and accessible algorithms that have a tangible impact on society. My ultimate goal is to contribute to advancements that shape our daily lives and the world around us.

I received my PhD in 2019 from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, where I also earned my B.Sc (Cum Laude 2008) and M.Sc (Summa Cum Laude 2015). Throughout my academic journey, I had the privilege of working under the guidance of Prof. Anath Fischer (ME) and Prof. Michael Lindenbaum (CS).
