Computer Vision is a classic research area since the 1950s, when the earliest computers struggled to interpret photography and scenes from the natural world. Much like in other fields of artificial intelligence, the last decade has seen deep learning
and neural networks revolutionize computer vision. The ability of cameras to tease apart complex scenes, peer through stormy weather, or detect anomalies in security applications rely on continued scientific discovery and technology development by the
A*STAR’s computer vision efforts reside in a sweet spot between theoretical computer science research and application-driven AI productization, and are carried out at several Research Institutes in multi-disciplinary
teams. Our scientists continue to push the boundaries of computer vision while inspired by the practical demands of our fast-paced techcentric society.
