Research & Educational Labs
Vision Research lab – Hedva Spitzer
Location: Class rooms building- 107 room
Vision research laboratory is concentrated on manly computational visual mechanisms, models, and derived algorithms. Among the main topics are chromatic and achromatic adaptation mechanisms, line and texture competition in spatial and temporal domains, after-effects effects, motion detection and eye-movements. The derived algorithms are as companding (compression and expanding) HDR natural and medical images, texture detection and enhancement also for accurate segmentation, contour integration in spatial and temporal domains, and shape from motion and stabilization models based on visual mechanisms. Applications are including algorithms for medical imges such as: CT, roentgen, US and mammography images.
The Algorithms lab.
The lab of Prof. Benny Applebaum, Prof. Guy Even, Prof. Boaz Patt-Shamir, Prof. Dana Ron and Dr. Shay Solomon.
Location: Programming building room 210
The objective of the Algorithms Lab is to study ways to solve problems by automatic means. This includes designing efficient procedures that solve actual problems on computational devices (algorithms), and proving inherentlimitations on resources required for such solutions (lower bounds). The research areas studied in the lab include distributed computation, network algorithms, approximate solutions to hard problems, cryptogaphy, algorithms with sublinear complexity, and others. Work is carried out under the supervision of faculty members as well as collaboration between students and post-docs affiliated with the lab, with the aim of advancing science and engineering, where the results take the form of publications in scientific conferences and journals.
