Dr. Neil Bruce is an Assistant Professor at the Ryerson University, Canada in the Department of Computer Science. Prior to this, Dr. Bruce was an Assistant Professor at the University of Manitoba from 2012-2017, and has been an Associate Professor since 2017. He has postdoctoral experience at INRIA (France) and has worked as a Researcher for Epson Canada. His research addresses problems in computer vision, deep-learning, human perception, neuroscience and visual computing. A common theme across these projects is the application of machine learning and data science to understand and draw inferences from complex data. This serves to produce a stronger understanding of the basic science underlying different phenomena, and to help engineer intelligent and/or application specific solutions to problems.
