Nathan Jacobs earned a Ph.D. in Computer Science at Washington
University in St. Louis (2010). Since then, he has been a Professor of
Computer Science at the University of Kentucky. Dr. Jacobs' research
area is computer vision; his specialty is developing learning-based
algorithms and systems for processing large-scale image collections.
His current focus is on developing techniques for mining information
about people and the natural world from geotagged imagery, including
images from social networks, publicly available outdoor webcams, and
