Computer Vision Laboratory

About the Computer Vision Lab

The Computer Vision Lab (CVL) is a multidisciplinary group performing basic and applied research in image manipulation, image analysis, computer vision and related areas of machine learning. 

CVL was established in 2014 and is now the home of 30+ academics, research assistants, interns and PhD students. CVL is jointly lead by Prof Tony Pridmore and Dr Michel Valstar.

Our goal is to develop novel and efficient techniques for the extraction of quantitative descriptions of viewed objects from a variety of images and image sequences. We also seek to translate those techniques into high quality software tools that can be used to address real world problems.

A key characteristic of the Computer Vision Laboratory is its high level of engagement with other disciplines. We have strong links with colleagues in the Schools of Biosciences, Medicine, Engineering and with other Computer-Science-based labs such as Horizon and the Mixed Reality Laboratory

The CVL has collaborated with and received research funding from a variety of partners including ESPRC, BBSRC, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, ARPA-E and the EU.
