About laboratory

The Visual Cognitive Systems Laboratory is involved in basic research in visually enabled cognitive systems, with emphasis on visual learning and recognition.

Research focuses on various theories about requirements, architectures, forms of representation, and varieties of mechanisms relevant to integration and control of vision systems.

Applications include tracking, learning, recognition and categorisation of objects and scenes in visual cognitive tasks, such as surveillance and smart vision-based positioning as well as in other applications of cognitive systems, such as mobile robots and cognitive assistants.
