PROFILE:

 

Eric Saund

Eric Saund is Senior Member of the Research Staff in PARC's Intelligent Systems Laboratory, and was from 2004-20011 Area Manager of the Perceptual Document Analysis Area. His research is in the field of computational vision, specializing in perceptual organization in the domain of document images.  Applications include ubiquitous document imaging,diagrammatic user interfaces, and perceptually-supported image editing.  Dr. Saund received a B.S. in Engineering  and Applied Science from the California Institute of Technology and a Ph.D. in Cognitive Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.   He has published numerous technical papers in the field,  served as Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, and has been awarded over 35 patents to date.  His work has been awarded two Best Paper Awards, one of them being the ScanScribe document image editor at the 2003 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software Technology, the other in the mathematical/behavioral analysis of Poker.
