Collaborating Faculty


Seong Joon is an independent group leader at the University of Tübingen leading the group on Scalable Trustworthy AI (STAI). He is interested in training reliable models (e.g. explainable, robust, and probabilistic models) and obtaining the necessary human supervision and guidance in a cost-effective way.

He has been a research scientist at NAVER AI Lab for 3.5 years. He received his PhD in computer vision and machine learning at Max-Planck Institute for Informatics in 2018, under the supervision of Bernt Schiele and Mario Fritz, with a focus on the privacy and security implications of CV and ML. He received the Master of Mathematics with Distinction in 2014 and Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics as a Wrangler in 2013, both at University of Cambridge.
