Introduction

Visual understanding is one of the main topic in artificial intelligence. With the coming of large volume of images and their unstructured representations, processing and understanding them pose new challenges. VLR group, founded by Prof. Xiang Bai, is affiliated with the School of Electronic Information and Communications, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China. Our team focuses on several of the most exciting directions in computer vision and deep learning, which includes scene text detection and recognition, human-based image analysis, shape representation and analysis, object detection and image segmentation. For more information about our work, please refer to the research and publication pages.
