General Information

The word "multimedia" is more than the simple combination of text, audio, images, graphics and video. The interaction among these media, and their interaction with humans, networks, and storage media, are what really make multimedia research exciting. Our research group, the Advanced Multimedia Processing (AMP) Lab, has wide interests in various techniques for multimedia applications. Our current research topics include:

  • Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition: object detection and tacking, 3D reconstruction, video surveillance, 3D object retrieval and streaming, combined vision and inertia sensing, and intrusion detection.
  • Computer Graphics: multiview imaging, image-based rendering, illumination normalization and relighting.
  • Multimedia Coding and Streaming: video over wireless, rate shaping/control, traffic/channel modeling, encoder optimization, and error concealment.
  • Multimodal Biometrics: face tracking, face recognition, voice identification, and lip-reading.
  • System Implementation: hardware-software implementation of speech recognition systems and multimedia codecs.
  • Bioinformatics: Analysis and matching of 3D protein structures.

Several projects at the AMP lab have contributed to international standards such as ITU-T H.263 and ISO MPEG-4. Others will lead to advanced research that goes beyond the existing standards.
