MSR-Inria joint lab: scientific image and video mining

Participants : Cordelia Schmid, Karteek Alahari, Yang Hua.

This collaborative project, which started in September 2008, brings together the WILLOW and Thoth project-teams with researchers at Microsoft Research 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 focuses on fundamental computer science research in computer vision and machine learning, and its application to archeology, cultural heritage preservation, environmental science, and sociology.
