Image processing

Digital image processing make use of mathematical algorithms to treat or to extract information from still or video images. With the development of increasingly complex algorithms, and larger data quantities, such a process can require substantial computational resources. Advanced image processing techniques are employed in an increasing number of application areas, such as for medical imagery, and surveillance.

At EPFL, digital image processing research is undertaken in both fundamental algorithm and tool development and application-oriented studies in areas such as image reconstruction, multimodal analysis, super-resolution imaging, information recovery from highly incomplete data, and advanced processing of medical and biological images.

Specific laboratories involved in image processing activities include:
