Lab Introduction

The research topics of our Lab include:
Semantic visual media segmentation & recognition: We focus on interactively or automatically segmenting images, videos or graphics models into semantic parts, each of which corresponds an object or a meaningful part of an object.
3D reconstruction: We are interested in efficiently and effectively reconstruct 3D object models using single or multiple commodity depth cameras.
Cloud-assisted media computing: We are interested in leveraging cloud computing infrastructure to handle large-scale media computing tasks.
