About Andreas Persson

Andreas Persson is currently working as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Machine Perception and Interaction Lab, Centre for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS) at Örebro University. Andreas concluded his Ph.D. studies in 2019 and received his Ph.D. in Information Technology by defending his thesis on the topic of semantic modeling of real-world objects using perceptual anchoring. In particular, he has studied how the concept of perceptual anchoring could be used to model semantically rich representations of real-world objects observed through sensory data.

Andreas's research interests include, besides perceptual anchoring: knowledge representation, human-robot interaction, machine learning, and computer vision.

The anchoring framework, which Andreas has developed alongside his research, is publically available on Github:
