Supasorn Suwajanakorn is a computer vision researcher who recently developed a technique that can synthesize a speech video of President Obama by learning from existing video footage. His earlier work includes a novel method to reconstruct a 3D face model of anyone just from their photos, which was awarded the Madrona Prize and the Innovation of the Year in 2016, as well as a software that predicts an age-progressed photo of a missing child. Previously, he was a research resident at Google Brain. Supasorn holds a PhD in computer science from the University of Washington.
