Neural substrates dedicated to vision is said to occupy about 40 percent of the cerebral cortex. Realizing computer vision as a truly intelligent perceptual modality is fundamental for artificial intelligence, and would also inform our understanding of human visual intelligence. Towards computational visual intelligence, our research is focused on establishing the theoretical foundations and efficient implementations of computational methods for better understanding people, objects and scenes from their appearance in images and video, as well as the development of novel computational imaging systems that can see beyond what we see.
Our lab started in April 2018 with PI Nishino’s return to Japan from the US. Please check out research and publication for samples of research conducted in our lab. You can find many of our code and data, too. We are constantly looking for qualified students and postdocs. If you are interested in joining our lab, please contact us.
