Dr. Boult's wife (Ginger) and he have a beautiful house in Monument CO. As he works hard, he also plays hard, and really enjoys the Colorado boarding and the "air" .
I have an office in EAS, one at the Vast lab, and one at my company, Securics Inc, over at University Office Park. Also through my role in EPIIC, I have many off campus meetings. Finding me by dropping in is a low probably event. Try to arrange a meeting by email.
Note that I run a pretty aggressive spam filter, if you don't get a response to email with 48hours, try again and add the word "innovation" to your subject line.

Some time ago J. Bloom of KOAA News spoke about my work on biometrics and how I demonstrated how easy it is to spoof/fake fingerprints. Interview of Dr. Boult on KOAA TV on biometrics and spoofing fingerprints (5M Mpeg4 Avi file)
In Spring 2009 I co-taught with Nina Polok and Rory Lewis for the second offering of The Innovation Process (INOV101). This is freshman course covers the innovation process, tools for creativity, personality types and change, team structure and interactions, and stages of innovation. Its a very team-oriented, interactive course, and includes implementing techniques covered.
In Spring 2009, I co-taught the first offering of INOV210 with Rory Lewis - "Technical Writing, Proposals and Presentations" - facilitating students to advance technical writing skills, learn about team writing, and work on real grant propsals. The class submitting three propsals totaling nearly half a million in funding. Students also learned and practiced presentation skills.
Also in Spring 2009, I co-taught INOV202 and INOV302 with Greg Stock. This is BI Innovation Teams course, and these teams partner with local companies.
Fall 2008 I co-taught INOV201 and INOV301 with Greg Stock. This is another Innovation Teams course, partnering with local companies. This Fall 2008 course included supporting an SBIR propposal with Tier1Performance, which was funded and worked on Spring 2009.
Also, Fall 2008 I co-taught the second offering of Introduction to Entrepreneurships (ENTP 100). This freshman course on entreprenurship includes a slant toward technology-based entreprenrurship. With 80 students enrolled, BI signifcantly exceeded our expected second offering for the the program.
Fall 2008 I co-taught a graduate course on Biometrics.
Fall 2008 I also co-taught a ITeckKnow Freshman Seminar with Nina Polok.
Spring 2008, I co-taught the first offering of The Innovation Process (INOV101), which is a freshman course covering the innovation process, tools for creativity, personality types and change, team structure and interactions, and stages of innovation. It is a very team-oriented course, and teams implement techniques covered.
In Spring 2008 I taught a course on Advanced Security Systems.
Fall 2007 I co-taught Intro. to Entrepreneurships (ENTP100) It was the groundbreaking course in the Bachelor of Innovation family of degrees. As is a freshman course on entreprenurship, it provides a slant toward technology-based entreprenrurship. 45 enrolled students signifcantly exceeded our expected first offering for the BI.
Also in Fall 2007, I co-taught ITechKnow with Morgan Sheppard of College of Business, and Rick Redella, a local entrepreneur. This is freshman seminar surveys Engineering Technology and its impact on society.
In Spring 2007 I again taught Software Engineering (CS330) , an intensive hands-on experience for the students. We have lined up multiple local companies to be "clients" for the requirement/specification/design aspects of BI.
Fall 2006 I taught Computational Image Processing (CS505) , which is a graduate course on image processing with an emphasis on computational rather than theoretical aspects. Programming in both C++ and Matlab is required.
In Fall 2006 I co-taught ITechKnow with Dean J. Haefner. This freshman seminar is a survey of Engineering Technology and its impact on society.
Spring 2006 I taught Software Engineering (CS330) which was an intensive hands-on experience for students. We lined up multiple local companies to be "clients" for the requirement / specification / design aspect of the class.
Earlier, in Spring 2005, I taught cs601 Technology Transfer, Intellectual Property and Patents for Engineering . Three patents resulted from the class, and two individual students were instrumental in defending their company from a patent infringement suit!
Fall 2004 I taught CS692 Advanced topics in Security and Programing Languages (CS316) , at UCCS.
In Spring 2004 I taught teaching CS 584 Computer Vision at UCCS.
For the current lab project check out Vision and Security Lab (VAST) lab page.
I have also started up the company Securics that addresses security, biometrics and privacy.
Other stuff of interest
Before joining UCCS, he was the Weiseman Chair Professor and the New Century Fund Professor of Computer Science in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at Lehigh University. There he was the founding chairman of the CSE department. Dr. Boult was on the faculty of Columbia University from 1986 (Associate Prof. 1992-1994) before joing Lehigh in 1994. He studied at Columbia University, earning MS and PhD degrees in computer science in 1984 and 1986 respectively.
Dr. Boult has organized dozens of related conferences / workshops for IEEE, including both biometrics and embedded systems, as well as been an invited speaker on biometrics for ASIS and at NIST Biometric Quality Workshop. He is the chair of the IEEE Technical Committee on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, and a founding memeber of the IEEE Biometric Council.
Among his achievements, Dr. Boult published over 150 papers and holds seven patents, with nine patents pending. He continues to publish articles in Computer Vision / Robotics and Networking and Mobile Computing. He has co-organized multiple workshops on visual surveillance, performance evaluation of tracking systems, and computer vision related topics. Dr. Boult also participates in program committees for more than two dozen IEEE and SPIE conferences and workshops on computer vision and sensor fusion.
Dr. Boult's ongoing research projects include advanced biometrics , advanced visual security systems, design and evaluation of imaging sensors, FPGA-acceleration algorithms for Vision, Embedded systems, algorithms for efficient use of wireless networks, Network performance, network security, steganslysis, medical imaging, and Web-based support systems for trauma patients.
As Co-founder and CEO/CTO of Securics Inc (www.securics.com), Dr. Boult is addressing security and biometrics technology. Since its founding in 2004, Securics has been actively commercializing technology developed by Dr. Boult at UCCS and won five Phase I and three Phase 2 SBIR/STTRs as well as multiple commercial contracts. With exclusive licenses to six pending patents, Securics has unqiue technologies that simultaneously improve security and privacy. Securics was selected by the US Military to develop a long-range facial recognition system using their unique technology.
From 2002-2004, Dr. Boult was founding Chief Technology officer for GuardianSolutions, Inc. There he helped develop leading video-based intelligent security systems sold to some of the largest ports in the country, financial institutions, large pharmaceutical companies, and developed unique portable systems for the Military and border patrol. GuardianSolutions (dba Jtech) was acquired by Telephonics, a subsidiary of Griffon Corporation (NYSE: GFF).
From 1998 and currently, Dr. Boult works with Cyclovison (now doing business as Remote Reality ), where he continues to pursue joint contracts and help in automated analysis of their unique 360 imaging technology. Remote Reality is a venture backed company and the leading designer and manufacturer of next-generation intelligent omni video systems (IOVS). Major customers include the US Departmet of Defense and Lockheed Martin.

I also enjoy to play a bit of Table Tennis. I picked it up again in 2004 since El Pomar, who funded my Chair, also sponsors the Colorado State Games. In the 2004 Rocky Mountain State Games and 2005 State Games of Americia, my partner Xiaobo(Joe) Zhou and I won gold in the mens recreational doubles. And in 2005 Joe won Gold in the mens recreational singles (so you see where the real skill was :-) In 2006 my skill improved and I won silver on my own and bronze in doubles with Tao as my partner. This advanced ability I owe to a table in my basement and a robot, allowing me to practice (right). In 2007 I again won gold in doubles with Joe. 2008 Joe and I attained gold in doubles again, but more significantly I received single gold in the over 40 recreational division and bronze in the singles recreational open.
