Intelligent and Interactive Systems

Research at IIS is situated at the intersection of computer vision, machine learning and robotics. Much of our work is motivated by the perceptual needs of autonomous robots, and focuses on visual inference as it serves activity such as grasping. Other areas of interest include the psychology and biology of perception, and video analysis for applications such as sports or human-computer interaction.
