The World Wide Web is a visual place, full of images and video. As of September 2010, Flickr hosts over 5 billion photos, while over 2 billion videos are watched every day on Youtube. This is a vast store of information, but how can we find what we want? Currently, images are almost always identified […]
A key step towards automating the monitoring of video from many cameras is to generate an understanding of the paths which targets may take between their fields of view. This activity topology information is the foundation for many fundamental tasks in networked surveillance, such as tracking an object across the network. Although it could be […]
Prof van den Hengel will give a seminar at Microsoft Research in Beijing in July titled “3D User-Created Content”. The talk describes much of the recent ACVT work in trying to make the generation of 3D content more accessible. The abstract is The technology to capture and visualise 3D content was invented before the aeroplane, […]
A news release about our recent ARC Linkage grant award: University of Adelaide computer scientists are developing image-based technology which promises a major boost to the breeding of improved cereal varieties for the harsher environmental conditions expected under climate change. Led by Professor Anton van den Hengel, Director of the Australian Centre for Visual Technologies […]
Prof van den Hengel will visit China’s National Laboratory for Pattern Recognition in early June to give a seminar and identify opportunities for collaboration. According to their web site The National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition (NLPR) at the Institute of Automation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences （CAS）, was established in 1987 to become one of the […]
Prof van den Hengel will give a seminar in the Qualcomm Augmented Reality Lecture Series at Technische Universität Vienna in July. The title of the talk is Reconstruction and recognition for realistic augmented reality and the abstract: Augmented reality involves the rendering of synthetic content into live video. The believable augmentation of reality requires that synthetic content […]
ACVT researchers have had 5 papers accepted to The International Conference on Computer Vision 2011, which will be held in Barcelona in November.
ACVT is collaborating with University of Adelaide scientists to develop image analysis methods that can be applied to model biodiversity. Prof. Anton van den Hengel is a CI on the project being led by Prof. Andy Lowe. The ARC has awarded the University of Adelaide a Super-Science Fellowship valued at $556,800 to do this work. The […]
