Matthew Brand

Matthew Brand is a scientist and artist based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Brand's research focuses on mathematical and computational models of perception, learning, and control, in which each is treated as an optimization problem. He is best known for working on the following topics:

Brand is also co-inventor of several technologies in image processing, including a method for recomposing photos known as "Liquid Rescale" in Gimp and "Content-Aware Scaling" in Photoshop.[11]
