Computer Vision Research Laboratory



Welcome to the Computer Vision Research Laboratory at UCSB. The name is there for historical reasons; however, our research agenda and project scope have broadened to include a diverse set of interesting and challenging topics. Today, students, visitors, and faculty are engaged in advanced research related to computer vision, medical image analysis, computer graphics, and bioinformatics. This page is constantly under construction and contains descriptions of some sample projects in the Computer Vision Laboratory. If you desire further information, please contact Professor Yuan-Fang Wang directly.
