The Robotics Vision lab is focusing on enhancing robotics and
improving people's life quality by exploring the most of computer vision
technologies. Established in Dec 2014 by NAIST and CMU (Carnegie
Mellon University), this laboratory provides a unique platform
for conducting leading research (both basic and applied) via close
collaboration among international talents.
We are studying the following concrete research topics:
- Assistive Technology for Disabled/Older People
- First-Person Vision with Wearable Cameras and Mobile Computing
- Scalable Visual Recognition for Dealing with Large Amounts of Data
As one of the first two international collaborative laboratories built
by NAIST, this laboratory is different from any other research labs and
collaborative labs that you can find in the Graduate School of Information
Science. It is unique for being
- Leaded by Prof. Takeo Kanade and closely collaborated with Carnegie Mellon University
- Gathering active and talented researchers with very diverse nationalities
- Targeting at innovative research with global and long-lasting impact
- Better bridging NAIST researchers and international peers
