The Computer Vision Group at the School of Computer Science and Engineering develops algorithms and methods that will allow computers to reach the remarkable performance of humans, and in some cases even surpass human ability.
The Computer Vision Group’s current focus includes the analysis of multiple images, which entails computing a scene’s 3D structure from multiple views; improving image quality; video summarization; image segmentation and classification; visual recognition; visual learning; indexing into image and video databases; and visual perception, or psychophysics.
The Group’s breakthrough research has led to the creation of new companies and commercial applications in a wide range of industries, including transportation (camera-based systems for driver assistance, cruise control, and lane-change indicators); measurement of automobile parts; and applications for the entertainment, graphics, design and security industries.
