Important Notice about Internships
If you are interested in coming to do research with us as an intern, please read this first.
Graphics and Vision at Otago
Welcome to the Graphics and Vision Research Laboratory in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Otago. The laboratory was formed in 1986, and today consists of 5 academic staff and several postgraduate students, as well as the occasional visitor.
Our research is varied, but most of it falls somewhere in the broad fields of computer graphics, vision, and image processing. Mostly we're doing stuff that is interesting and fun, since we believe that makes the lab an interesting and fun place to be. You can find out more technical details from our publications.
If you are interested in what we do and want to get involved, look at the ways in which you can join the lab, or get in touch with one of the academic staff.
Marsden FastStart award
Stefanie with Ali Knott as mentor won a $300,000 Marsden FastStart award. The three-year project is called "Interactive 3D computational videography".
MBIE research funding award
Stefanie and the project team from Computer Science (Steven), Information Science (Tobias Langlotz, Holger Regenbrecht) and Physical Education (Chris Button) have won a $1,000,000 MBIE research funding award. The three-year project is called "Situated visualisation to enrich sports experience for on-site spectators" and builds on previous collaboration between the different departments.
Tab and Steven went to BMVC to present their paper on "A Generalised Formulation for Collaborative Representation of Image Patches" See the publications page for details.
Image and Vision Computing New Zealand is in Palmerston North on November 21st and 22nd. We have five papers accepted from Tap, Rassoul, Lewis, Stefanie, and Steven. See the publications page for details.
Hamza has published a paper and dataset of 3D vertebrae models in the Data Science Journal, and Steven is co-author on a paper by Tom Botterill summarising the robot vine pruning project in the Journal of Field Robotics.
Welcome to Stefanie
Stefanie Zollmann has just joined the department as a lecturer. She has previously worked at Animation Research Ltd., and her research interests lie in Visual Computing, the intersection between vision, graphics, visualisation, and HCI.
