Project: Research project

Description

In traditional vision systems the model acquisition and recognition processes are decoupled in time and control. The coupling of both processes leads to significant challenges in computer vision. The model acquisition task has to be performed by active memory processes that have to implement visual learning and categorization capabilities. The recognition process must be substituted by an active retrieval that performs a reasoning process about the memorized and perceived input data. The project aims at the development of an active memory and retrieval system in the context of an Augmented Reality scenario. The user wears a head-mounted camera and display such that the system is able to build up a hierarchically structured memory of what the user sees. Query results are re-visualized in a virtual world or projected into the real world using the head-mounted display. http://www.vampire-project.org
