Event details

Department of Computer Science Inaugural Lecture

We humans are often described as ‘very visual creatures’, able to exploit the rich information in our special visual world. Can we build machines that learn to do the same? Nick will describe how computer vision is impacting a wide range of sectors from healthcare to safety and security - from sports, games and entertainment to industrial automation. Using a selection of computer vision projects that he has worked on at York, he will attempt to convey why the field is interesting, challenging and important - and what it promises for the future.
