Yizhak Ben Shabat



I am currently a Visiting Research Fellow at the Australian National Universit (ANU) and Technion – Israel Institute of Technology as part of my Marie Sklodowska-Curie Global Fellowship (MSCA-GF), working with  Prof. Stephen Gould and Prof. Ayellet Tal. Until recently, I was a Research Fellow with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision (ACRV). Founder, creator and host of The Talking Papers Podcast, a new medium for disseminating research.

About Me

My research interests lie at the intersection of 3D computer vision, machine learning and geometric algorithms.  In particular, I am currently working on applying deep learning methods to 3D point clouds for various tasks including detection, classification, and action recognition.

My mission is to make beautifully practical and accessible 3D data algorithms to change the world. There is a dual meaning here. The 3D data algorithms will change the technological world and consequently our daily lives. However,  making the knowledge freely accessible to anyone with a computer and an internet connection will change an individual’s life, which I find to be even more impactful. On my quest to change the wold, I created the The Talking Papers Podcast, a podcast by reserachers for reserchers that aims to be a new medium for disseminating research and help early career academics. 

I received my PhD in 2019 from the Faculty of mechanical engineering at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology where I also received both my B.Sc (Cum Laude 2008) and M.Sc (Summa Cum Laude 2015) . My PhD supervisors were Prof. Anath Fischer (ME) and Prof. Michael Lindenbaum (CS).

This website aims to gather all of my contributions to the world in one place. You can follow my research blog, subscribe to my podcast, download my code for academic purposes (otherwise contact me), read my publications, read more about me and my achievements or just enjoy some fun posts like this one about how to pronounce my name.

Feel free to contact me with questions regarding code, publication or anything really.
