Area of Science: Computer Science

Project Title: Visual Grouping and Object Recognition



This project addresses two central problems in artificial vision: grouping and recognition. Grouping is the partitioning of the image or video stream into regions/spatiotemporal volumes, each corresponding to a single object or part of an object. Recognition is the process of labeling the objects in the scene that caused the image; this could be at category level (e.g. human face) or individual level (e.g. Bill Clinton's face). This project could be of interest to several audiences. In areas of biological, computer vision, artificial intelligence, or machine learning, grouping, figure-ground and recognition are central research problems. We hope to utilize and improve several key methods used by researchers in the field of artificial vision. Our language of choice will be C++, implementing MPI technology whenever possible.
