Department of Computer Science

Computer Vision Group

The Computer Vision Group conducts research in computational methods to extract information from images. The group specialises in analysis of visual information captured from conventional cameras, depth sensors, and medical imaging modalities. The research of the group focusses on detection and recognition in images/video, image segmentation, registration, and shape analysis using geometric models derived from image collections. The work incorporates computing, multi-dimensional signal processing, machine learning, and computational geometry, with applications to healthcare, human-computer interaction, and computer games.
