Welcome to the Multimedia Research Centre (MRC)
Our research centre actively conducts state-of-the-art projects in computer vision, computer graphics, image processing and perceptual factors that promote unrestricted access to education and advances in biomedical technology.
Multimedia Research Centre (MRC) provides a collaborative
environment for dedicated and self-movtivated students to enhance
their skill sets via exchanging research experience with only
only other MRC members but also researchers in other world
class research groups.
Applicants to the graduate program in our Computing Science
Department are always welcome, and you are invited to
join the following research activities conducted in MRC.
Our students carry out applied research with focus on:
- Online and mobile multimedia education:
goal-oriented collaborative framework for online education
adaptive learning and testing
student modeling and personalization
advanced HCI in learning technology
- Computer Graphics:
large scale outdoor 3D scene processing and visualization
3D model similarity match
level-of-detail and skeletonization
compression and transmission
- Computer Vision:
Advanced techniques in 3DTV
stereo calibration and imaging
- Augmented reality:
Video tracking and graphics animation
- Scientific and medical data visualization:
N-dimensional texture synthesis
e.g. surgical training and planning
- Human factors, perceptual analysis and user studies:
just-noticeable-difference and visual impact
- Image Processing:
medical image segmentation for TB detection
and brain MRI analysis
shape from shading
