2020 WACV paper on “Gaze Estimation for Assisted Living Environments”

Effective assisted living environments must be able to perform inferences on how their occupants interact with one another as well as with surrounding objects. To accomplish this goal using a vision-based automated approach, multiple tasks such as pose estimation, object segmentation and gaze estimation must be addressed.  Paper written by four authors, including two Marquette […]

2019 WACV paper to introduce FreeLabel

Paper published at WACV 2019 (Winter Conference on Applications of Computer Vision) to introduce FreeLabel, an intuitive open-source web interface that allows users to obtain high-quality segmentation masks, with just a few freehand scribbles, in a matter of seconds.  Among four authors were two Marquette University authors:  Philipe A. Dias (EECE graduate student) and Dr. […]

2018 Presentations at ACCV and IROS conferences

In 2018, the Computer Vision team published two journal papers and Philipe Ambrozio Dias went to ACCV (Asian Federation of Computer Vision) and IROS (International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems) to present their work.

New grant and fellowship

Henry Medeiros received a Regular Research Grant and a Summer Faculty Fellowship from Marquette University to carry out research on distributed multi-target tracking using wireless camera networks.

Renovations Completed

The renovations in the COVISS lab were concluded. The lab is now fully operational. Two high-performance workstations will be delivered to the lab shortly.
