Jeppe Have Rasmussen

Dr Jeppe Have Rasmussen really got interested in deep learning when he realized it might be a great way to find his favorite animal, the mighty blue whale. Jeppe received his master’s degree in biology and physics from the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) and continued to do his PhD in neural control and biomechanics of sound production in songbirds. After employment at SDU lecturing physiology and animal behavior he moved a bit to the south do his first Postdoc at the Leibniz institute in Rostock, Germany working with animal welfare in the agricultural industry using Kohonen networks. After that he moved a lot to the west to Texas A&M University, USA where he used region based neural networks to detect blue- and fin whale social calls. He has now moved a bit to the north to UIA Grimstad to detect and classify fish calls using state of the art neural networks. His position is a cooperation between Center for Coastal Research (CCR) and CAIR.
