We at CIU research group at Barrett Hodgson University are concerned with the extraction, analysis and understanding of useful information from a static image or a sequence of images. So for that it involves the development of a theoretical and algorithmic base to achieve automatic visual understanding in machines.
The core mission of our research group is to understand how we get mind from brain. One of the primary and most appealing goals of computer vision is to automatically understand the content of images on a cognitive level.
Cognitive science is the interdisciplinary study of mind and intelligence, embracing philosophy, psychology, artificial intelligence, neurosciences, linguistics, and anthropology. Ultimately we want to have computers interpret images as we humans do, recognizing all the objects, scenes, and people as well as their relations as they appear in natural images or video. Our research will therefore be focusing on proposing and developing such models.
