Introduction

My name is Sam Goree, I'm a recent graduate of Oberlin College in Ohio, where I majored in computer science and musical studies, and am currently a graduate student at Indiana University. Welcome to my personal blog! I've used this site in the past to write about research projects I've worked on, and will continue to use it to document future work whenever I'm able.

Attention is All They Need

If you've spent any time reading computer vision research papers over the past few years, you've probably noticed a big change in the way ppaers look, driven by the deep learning revolution and subsequent boom in computer vision. We wrote a paper about these changes, and how they both reflect and shape computer vision.

Hire Me!

I’m on the job market! I’m looking at TT/NTT/visiting faculty positions in computer science, information science or a related area in the Northeast US, though I’m open to postdocs as well for the right project.

How Should We Handle Subjective Problems in Computer Vision?

Over the past two years, I've been exploring a category of subjective computer vision problems and how we should approach them. In this post, I'd like to make the case for a more humanistic approach to these problems.

Models of the Self in Disco Elysium

In this post, I’d like to examine an unusual text, the label on a designer jacket produced by ZA/UM, the art collective and video game studio behind the hit 2019 game, Disco Elysium.

I Read 17 Old Web Design Books and You Will Not Believe What They Said!

Well, you might believe it. They mostly just gave advice on how to design websites. But the thing which I found absolutely fascinating in these books is the way they gave that advice. In fact, we found this style of writing so interesting, we wrote a paper about it, which is now available.
