From Multimedia Computing Lab - University of Augsburg
Welcome to the Multimedia Computing and Computer Vision Lab at the Institute of Computer Science at the University of Augsburg.
The Multimedia Computing and Computer Vision Lab focuses on the theory and all computational aspects of multimedia and multimodal data processing, especially on detection, recognition and mining. Current lines of research include image/video content analysis such as object detection and recognition of, for instance, brands and products in social networks, human parsing in images/videos/sensor signals such as for instance pose estimation of world-class athletes, machine learning for multi-modal data, and the automatic reassembly of shredded documents, which has to deal with graphical, pictorial, textual and other contents in paper documents all at once.Note: Based on the requests of the students the teaching language is German despite that the slides and reading material is in English.
Starting SS 2011 the graduate lecture "Multimedia II: Media Mining" can be credited either as a database lecture or a multimedia lecture. (In Deutsch: "Multimedia II" kann im Master entweder als Multimediaveranstaltung oder als Datenbankveranstaltung eingebracht werden"!)
