|Fast code now available for change detection (difference thresholding).|
|With colleagues I organised a workshop on "Face analysis: The intersection of computer vision and human perception" was held in Korea on the 6th November 2012 in conjunction with ACCV 2012.|
|Along with John Collomosse I edited a book on "Image and Video-Based Artistic Stylisation" which has just been published by Springer.|
I gained the B.Sc. degree in Computer Science and Microprocessor Systems in 1984 from Strathclyde University, Glasgow, and the Ph.D. degree in Information Engineering from City University, London in 1988. I was a research fellow at City University, developing a prototype system for the Home Office to detect and classify intruders in image sequences. I worked on the Alvey project "Model-Based Interpretation of Radiological Images" at Guy's Hospital, London before becoming a lecturer at the Department of Computer Science, Curtin University of Technology, Perth, Australia. I moved to Italy to work at the Institute for Remote Sensing Applications at the Joint Research Centre. followed by a return to the UK, becoming lecturer at the Department of Information Systems and Computing, Brunel University, London, UK. At the beginning of 2000 I moved to the School of Computer Science & Informatics, Cardiff University.
See also this (old) page for more details of the group's activities. We are also part of the Research Institute of Visual Computing.
My past and present research includes:
For a number of years I was newsletter editor and then secretary of the British Machine Vision Association.
British Machine Vision ConferenceThe British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC2002) was held in Cardiff in 2002! You can read about some of the work described at the conference in an article in HERO
Agent based Computer VisionI was co-guest editor of the 2004 special issue of Pattern Recognition on Agent based Computer Vision. This was the original call for papers.
Neural-Fuzzy Applications in Computer VisionI was co-guest editor of the 2000 special issue of the Journal of Intelligent and Robotic Systems on Neural-Fuzzy Applications in Computer Vision. This was the editorial, setting the scene.
Machine Vision using Neural NetworksI was co-guest editor of the 1998 special issue of Neural Computing and Applications on Machine Vision using Neural Networks.
I have organised some of the BMVA technical meetings. You can read the abstracts for Low Level Feature Extraction and AI Methods and Data Fusion in Remote Sensing Image Processing .
|You can upload your images and try out our non-photorealistic rendering method for generating line drawings.|
|The images used in the paper "An alternative approach to computing shape orientation with an application to compound shapes", Jovisa Zunic and Paul L. Rosin, International Journal of Computer Vision, vol. 81, no. 2, pp. 138-154, 2009 are available here.|
|The annotations and extracted audio-visual features from the sequences of the two way conversations making up the Cardiff Conversational Database (CCDb) will soon be available.|
This year I am teaching CMT102 Computational Systems, CM0311 - Image Processing and CM2303 - Algorithms and Data Structures.
