Dr. Liz Klonoff on 5-Day Rule
Identifying terrorists hiding in large crowds and helping reunite abducted children with their biological parents years later, are among the many projects researchers at the UCF Center for Research in Computer Vision work on every day. The center focuses on using complex computational methods to quickly recognize and analyze patterns, gestures, facial features and objects in images such as photos, videos and medical scans. The key is dramatically speed-up the analysis of thousands of photos or hours of video footage. It’s cutting edge research with impact.
