Our research team - Durham University, Spring 2023 (see also: 2018)
The work of my research team relates to computer vision and robotic sensing – the automatic understanding of images by computer as an aspect of artificial intelligence (i.e. "visual AI"). Our work is enabled both by the fundamentals of image processing and recent advances in deep machine learning.
Within this domain we specialize in several industry-facing problem domains spanning X-ray image understanding, automotive vision (autonomous vehicles), visual surveillance, robotic sensing and general topics in object detection, classification and broader image understanding.
This has resulted in over £7+ million of research income, collaboration with 40+ government and industry partners (2007- 2023+) and supported the development of AI software start-up COSMONiO by former team members (acquired by Intel, 2020).
