Shintaro Shiba

Ph.D candidate in Computer Vision

Berlin, Germany

I’m a Ph.D student in computer vision (especially event-based camera), at Technische Universität Berlin (Prof. Guillermo Gallego) and Keio University (Prof. Yoshimitsu Aoki). I also have a professional experience as a software engineer in production-scale MLOps (ML and data pipeline) for autonomous driving at Woven by Toyota. Please see my CV for more details.

I majored in neuroscience for Bachelor’s and Master’s to understand human brain (yes, although it’s way complicated just for a couple of years). Self-teaching and some internships in Tokyo and Bay Area gave me fundamental computer science, programming, and machine learning skills.

Je parle un peu le français and spreche ich etwas Deustch. Apart from work, I love to play jazz saxophone and dance :)


Feb 3, 2024 Mr. Kai Kohyama, a Bachelor student that I have been supervising, successfully finished his Bachelor thesis (Keio Uni, Faculty of Science and Technology)! The title and details are to be updated, as we prepare a submission.
Jan 20, 2024 I am honered and excited to receieve the 14th JSPS Ikushi Award!! (details) JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) established the JSPS Ikushi Prize program in 2010.
