News 11-14-2013: A Handheld Video Face and Person Recognition Competition is being organized as part of IJCB 2014. Here is the Call for Particitpation.

News 02-28-2014: Our Robust Staged RANSAC Tracking (RSRT) Software is now available .

The Computer Vision Group at Colorado State University focuses on semantic object recognition in complex domains. The challenge of object recognition has lead us to address computer vision in the broader context of Artificial Intelligence, and to integrate techniques from empirical evaluation and machine learning. Our goal is to use these techniques to develop computer vision systems whose behaviors are both reliable and understood.

We are actively studying human face recognition algorithms and activity recognition in video. There is more about our current research at the bottom of this page.

Current Research

Activity Understanding

We are actively deveoping unsupervised techniques to discover human activity in video. For more on this see Bruce Draper's Homepage

Face Recognition

We have three active research areas in face recognition:

Correlation Filters

In David Bolme's PhD work he created a new way to train correlation filters. Code implementing this new approach has been released as the Optimized Correlation Output Filters Toolset (OCOFTools)
