Computer vision makes interpretations of information that comes in form of images. As people use vision to recognize other people, objects and their immediate surroundings so that they can move and act on it, computer vision offers this capability to computers and robots. The research program Computer Vision exists at University of Ljubljana since 1999. It consists of two research laboratories at the Faculty of Computer and Information Science with almost 20 researchers. One of their researchers is employed at the Faculty of Arts. Lately, computer vision is getting closer to other artificial intelligence areas, in particular to machine learning since our main goal is to develop intelligent systems that can act and work in unstructured everyday human environment. In our research we are focused on finding the principles of interactive continuous visual learning and learning of object categories. We study these problems from a theoretical point as well as by implementing various practical ways of learning visual concepts. Beside basic research we are engaged in several applicative projects. One of our application projects is on intelligent user interfaces to determine in real-time the characteristics of users such as their age, gender and 3D position. We are working also on biometrical applications, in particular on human faces and fingerprints. A particular aspect of our work is the use of computer vision in the context of interactive art installations. Our research program is tightly connected into the European research network. In the last eight years we participated in nine European projects that brought in a total of 2.5 millions of Euros to our research program.
