Research Abstract
Work in computer vision at Irvine focuses on the development of representations and algorithms that support the recognition of three dimensional objects in complex scenes. Research in image representation uses physical models for illuminants, surfaces, and sensors to derive models that relate image observables such as color and texture to surface and scene characteristics. These image representations are fundamental to the development of algorithms for image segmentation and description. An area of particular interest is the recovery of image descriptions that are invariant to scene properties such as the illumination environment or the geometric arrangement of objects. These invariant descriptions allow for efficient three dimensional recognition in relatively unconstrained environments. Our models and algorithms are verified and refined by experimentation with data obtained at our image acquisition facility.
