B. S. Manjunath received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA, USA, in 1991. He is currently a Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UCSB. His group has been at the forefront of scalable image analytics, having pioneered methods for image search and retrieval that have been incorporated into the ISO/MPEG7 standard. His group has contributed extensively to steganography, image and video segmentation, distributed analytics for camera networks, activity recognition, and most recently in image/video forensics and cybersecurity. The BisQue image analytics platform developed in his lab offers a unique computing environment for scalable management and (reproducible) processing of large scientific multimodal data that can be easily deployed on a cloud. BisQue is open source and available as a core service at the NSF supported CyVerse cyber-infrastruture. His current projects include complex activity recognition in distributed cameras, media forensics and malware analytics. He has co-authored over 300 peer-reviewed publications and supervised 45 PhD theses. He is a fellow of the IEEE and the ACM.
