Nicolas Burrus

Nicolas Burrus is a researcher in computer vision at the Carlos III University of Madrid, with a special interest on 3d object model acquisition and recognition for robotic applications. He actively took part in the impressive wave of interest following Microsoft's release of the Kinect by publishing RGBDemo, an opensource software showcasing many applications of the Kinect. RGBDemo is being used by many research labs, companies, and hobbyists, and this success led him to co-found the Manctl startup with the ambition of developing a low-cost universal 3D scanner. Nicolas holds a PhD from Paris VI university, and a Master of Computer Science from EPITA (Paris, France).
