Lukas Muttenthaler

Doctoral Researcher

Since 2021 Lukas is a Ph.D. student in the Machine Learning Group at Technische Universität Berlin and a full-time researcher at the Berlin Institute for the Foundations of Learning and Data (BIFOLD). In addition, Lukas is a guest researcher at the Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig where he was employed before. Lukas is currently part of a research collaboration program with Google Brain. Prior to his time at the MPI, Lukas did a Master's in IT and Cognition / Computer Science at the University of Copenhagen. His research is supported by additional funding from Google. 

Lukas’ research mainly revolves around representation learning in computer vision. He works at the intersection of Machine Learning and Cognitive Science, where he is mostly interested in the question of how human inductive biases can be leveraged to benefit machine learning algorithms.

Do computers and humans "see" alike?

The field of computer vision has long since left the realm of research and is now used in countless daily applications, such as object recognition and measuring geometric structures of objects. One question that is not or only rarely asked is: To what extent do computer vision systems see the world in the same way that humans do?
