Research content
This laboratory carries out research on creating something interesting or useful using computer graphics and/or image processing technologies. Our goal is to invent element technologies for content-creation or manufacturing industries, rather than to create a content itself. Lab members are supposed to achieve results of novel digital image expressions or tools to make creators’ or designers’ work more efficient. A broad range of research themes are taken into consideration as long as they relate to digital image. In addition to writing programs, some members do research using special purpose equipment or devices such as hyper-spectral cameras or various types of sensors.
