Research Group on Visual Computation

Our research focuses on computational models for visual observation and interpretation of the world. The main objective is to develop geometric, variational and probabilistic models of visual object extraction, interpretation and reconstruction. These models are used to tackle scientific challenges such as segmentation, geometric alignment and fusion of images provided by various sensors and optics, as well as 3D object modeling and analysis.
