Welcome to the Computer Vision Lab Dresden


Computer Vision is a science that develops models and methods for understanding, analyzing, acquiring and processing images and generally high-dimensional structured data. Computer Vision is an inter-disciplinary field with strong links to Machine Learning, Optimization, Biology, Computer Graphics, and Human Computer Interaction. The mission of the Computer Vision Lab Dresden is to develop novel theoretical concepts which are practically relevant. We work on a broad range of application areas, from image matching, via semantic scene understanding, to Bio Imaging. On the theoretical side we focus on optimization and learning in probabilistic graphical models.

Research Highlights

The Rich Scene Model (ERC Consolidator Grant)

Given a sequence of images the goal is to recover a rich, detailed representation of the 3D world, ranging from physical to semantical aspects. To achieve this we investigate new ways to combine feature learning, modelling, physical laws, and optimization in large-scale discrete-continuous-valued probabilistic graphical model. 

Our Research


Optimization & Learning

with a focus on graphical models, deep models, and large-scale optimization.

Image Matching

with a focus on 3-9DoF scene flow, as well as jointly recovering multiple physical aspects.

Scene Understanding

with a focus on 3D semantic scene under-standing, and model-based vision.

Bio Imaging

with a focus on segmentation, tracking, and matching – jointly with teams from MPI-CBG.

Image Analysis

with a focus on segmentation, interactive techniques, as well as camera design.
