MSR-INRIA joint lab: scientific image and video mining

Participants : Adrien Gaidon, Cordelia Schmid.

This collaborative project, starting September 2008, brings together the WILLOW, LEAR, and VISTA project-teams with MSR researchers in Cambridge and elsewhere. It builds on several ideas articulated in the “2020 Science” report, including the importance of data mining and machine learning in computational science. Rather than focusing only on natural sciences, however, we propose here to expand the breadth of e-science to include humanities and social sciences. The project we propose will focus on fundamental computer science research in computer vision and machine learning, and its application to archeology, cultural heritage preservation, environmental science, and sociology, and it will be validated by collaborations with researchers and practitioners in these fields. The PhD student Adrien Gaidon is funded by this project.
