The Computer Vision Laboratory performs basic and applied research in image manipulation, analysis and computer vision. Our goals are to develop novel and efficient techniques for the extraction of quantitative descriptions of viewed objects from a variety of images and image sequences, and to translate those techniques into high quality software tools that can be used to address real world problems.
A key feature of the Computer Vision Laboratory is its high level of engagement with other disciplines. We have strong links with colleagues in the life and medical sciences, and work closely with the HCI community.
CVL's current areas of interest include:
- Bioimage analysis and plant phenotyping
- Object detection and tracking
- Automatic recognition of human behaviour
- Facial expression analysis
- Vision for HCI and games
- Medical image understanding
PhD Studentships Available
Seven fully-funded PhD studentships are now available in the School of Computer Science. CVL welcomes applications in any of its areas of interest, but would particularly appreciate applications from students interested in the detection and tracking of individual and groups of people using face, gesture and body cues, as well as other context from video.
