Computer Vision Research Group

Overview
Computer Vision is an interdisciplinary field that deals with how computers can be made for gaining high-level understanding from digital images or videos. From the perspective of engineering, it seeks to auto mate tasks that the human visual system can do. Our research group is working on a range of topics in Computer Vision,Image Processing and Pattern Recognition. More specifically the goal is to infer properties of the observed world from an image or a collection of images. Our work combines a range of mathematical domains including statistical inference, differential geometry, continuous (partial differential equations) and discrete (graphtheoretic) optimization techniques. Other aspects of our work include the analysis, use and generation of static data such as images as well as time-varying data such as video and moving objects.
