The Computational Vision Laboratory at the Department of Electrical Engineering of the Universidad de Chile was created in 2001. Our main research interest areas are the development of new computational vision paradigms as well as the application of image processing, machine learning and computational intelligence techniques to the resolution of computer vision and pattern recognition problems.
The current research application fields are:
- face analysis in images and videos (detection, tracking, alignment and recognition),
- computational detection of humans (skin detection, hand's gesture recognition and pornography detection),
- object detection and recognition, scene understading, and,
- mobile robotics vision (self-localization, tracking, visual SLAM).
