Research into computer vision
ÉTS leads the way in Québec!Thursday, June 20, 2019
Excellent news for our researchers: École de technologie supérieure ranks first in Québec on the international CS Rankings list over the last five years in the Computer Vision category, based on recognized scientific journals!
By recognizing the exceptional research carried out by ÉTS professors, this international distinction inspires us to continue to produce quality work in this area! Those who are mainly responsible for this honour include Professors Ismail Ben Ayed, Christian Desrosiers, José Dolz, Éric Granger, Hervé Lombaert, Marco Pedersoli and Matthew Toews.
ÉTS is ranked 6th in Canada overall, and trails only universities in Ontario and British Columbia in the Computer Vision category.
Relying on machine learning algorithms for the analysis and interpretation of images, computer vision is one of the most important areas in the field of artificial intelligence. The scientific community focusing on this type of research is immense, and CS Rankings is the most widely recognized ranking system.
Our team has also won numerous competitions among the scientific community, including the highly competitive Adversarial Vision Challenge in the fall of 2018, which saw more than 400 international teams compete.
The areas of application for this research are plentiful, and include medicine, biometrics and security, robotics and autonomous systems, social networks and remote sensing.
