Danijel Skočaj, PhD
Associate Professor

Danijel Skočaj is a researcher with the Faculty of Computer and Information Science, University of Ljubljana. He received the PhD degree from the same institution in 2003. His main research interests lie in the field of cognitive vision and artificial cognitive systems and include automatic modeling of objects from visual information with the emphasis on the robust and incremental appearance-based visual learning and recognition as well as the design and development of cognitive system with the emphasis on the interactive learning of categorical knowledge.
