Information Processing and Pattern Recognition

Research in Information Processing and Pattern Recognition, namely computer vision, sound and music computing and network information processing.

At CTM we combine fundamental and applied research in machine learning, signal processing and human-computer interaction, with applications in computer vision, image processing, sound and music computing and network information processing.

Our research on Image and video processing focuses on medical images, manuscript documents and video object tracking and can be applied in areas such as surveillance and sports.

At CTM our research in sound and music computing covers music information retrieval, interactive music systems and musical robotics. Furthermore, research at CTM on machine learning mainly focuses on the adaptation of learning techniques to the challenges presented by audiovisual data.

Finally, our research on network information processing focuses on the analysis of the relations between elements that are typically expressed in the form of graphs and this can be applied in domains such as communications or social networks.
