He obtained the B.S.E. degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1988. 

 

Darrell’s group develops algorithms for large-scale perceptual learning, including object and activity recognition and detection, for a variety of applications including autonomous vehicles, media search, and multimodal interaction with robots and mobile devices. His areas of interest include computer vision, machine learning, natural language processing, and perception-based human computer interfaces.


Prof. Darrell also serves as consulting Chief Scientist for the start-up Grabango, which is developing checkout-free shopping experiences, and for Nexar, which is pioneering city-scale visual driving analytics. Darrell also recently co-founded Datu with former students and postdocs.  Darrell is on the scientific advisory board of several other ventures, including WaveOne, SafelyYou, and KiwiBot. Previously, Darrell advised Pinterest, Tyzx (acquired by Intel), IQ Engines (acquired by Yahoo), Koozoo, BotSquare/Flutter (acquired by Google), MetaMind (acquired by Salesforce) and DeepScale. Darrell has also served as an expert witness for patent litigation relating to computer vision.
