Visual Computing

With a modern smartphone, everyone now has a high resolution digital camera attached to a high performance parallel computer in their pocket. On the one hand, the constantly increasing amount of visual information demands faster and better algorithms, while on the other hand it also opens the space for new exciting applications. At our department, we host several internationally renowned research groups working in visual computing. Our research areas include computer vision, visual analytics, computer graphics, augmented reality and human-computer interaction. Our scientific excellence is reflected in a growing number of international and national research projects (ERC grant, Christian Doppler laboratories), in top-tier publications and close cooperations with our industrial partners.
