Vision & Mission

The Mission of Intelligent Media Center (IMC) is to develop and maintain a number of various intelligent systems that can assist the social issues and cooperate in industrial projects. This Center mainly focuses on several basic fields of Intelligent Media researches as;

Artificial Intelligence
Pattern Recognition
Image, Signal and Video Processing
Multimedia Technologies
Computer Vision
Virtual Reality
Sensor-based Embedded System & Software
Indoor and Outdoor Smart Environments
Healthcare Mobile Systems
Computational Intelligence
Graphics modelling and Mapping
Machine learning

Based on these fields, we aspire to develop intelligent algorithms that perform significantly well during interactive and perception tasks for 1) Human motion analysis, body parts tracking, action recognition, behavior Understanding, pose estimation, life-log activity monitoring, gait recognition, Pedestrian detection, hand and figure detection; 2) Facial expression recognition, lips reading, eye-movements analysis, Facial masks, multi-face recognition, Gender/age classification; 3) Human-object recognition, Human-human interaction, object detection, surveillance systems, video codec, Scene semantics; 4) Wearable + Vision sensors, inertial sensors, accelerometers, gyroscopes, magnetic sensors, digital cameras, Z-cams, bumblebee cams, stereo-cams; 5) Healthcare systems, Patient monitoring systems, Cyber-Physical systems, Stroke/Heart-attack/blood pressure detection systems based on IoT.
