Intelligent Systems

The field of computer vision seeks to develop automated systems that can approximate human vision both in terms of perception and understanding.

In the videos above, Dr. Mircea Nicolescu and Dr. George Bebis test a new statistical method that can help computer vision systems distinguish key objects, such as people or cars, against a moving background.

Research into computer vision is one strand of the department's research in intelligent systems. The department also has an active research program in robotics, with areas of focus in robot learning, intent recognition and machine learning.
