Visual Information Processing research covers a range of topics including vision, graphics, intelligent behaviour understanding, and biomedical image computing.

The work of the section has led to more than 8 best paper awards at major international conferences (IEEE FG, ICRA, ISMAR, MICCAI, SensorComm) and attracted four Marie Curie fellows.

The group has pursued a successful strategy of growth in several key areas:  novel modelling and filtering approaches for SLAM and real-time dense scene mapping.

Intelligent behavior understanding, novel approaches to facial action and emotion prediction as well as novel approaches to robust face alignment, tracking and expression recognition, biomedical imaging computing, robotics & sensing, and appearance modelling for realistic computer graphics.

Statistical machine learning (with emphasis on component analysis and kernel learning) with applications in computer vision and general image/signal analysis. In particular, I design and develop statistical machine learning algorithms taylored for 2D/3D object and face recognition, 2D/3D object tracking, 2D/3D deformable object/face alignment, as well as, automatic human behaviour analysis. I apply such algorithms for analysis of various other signals (e.g., brain signals and graphs).
