Takeo Kanade

My research interests are in the areas of computer vision, visual and multi-media technology, and robotics. Common themes that my students and I emphasize in performing research are the formulation of sound theories which use the physical, geometrical, and semantic properties involved in perceptual and control processes in order to create intelligent machines, and the demonstration of the working systems based on these theories.

My current projects include basic research and system development in computer vision (motion, stereo and object recognition), recognition of facial expressions, virtual(ized) reality, content-based video and image retrieval, VLSI-based computational sensors, medical robotics, and an autonomous helicopter.
