Learning and Vision Lab, ECE, NUS


NUS Learning and Vision Group (the LV group) was founded by Professor Yan Shuicheng in December 2007 and currently is co-led by Prof. Yan Shuicheng and Dr. Feng Jiashi.

Since its birth, the LV group has been concentrating on going beyond known boundaries and encouraging most original research and technologies at the edges for computer vision, machine learning and their applications in real life. The research projects of LV range from fundamental machine learning (including deep learning) methods, to the cutting-edge face/human and image/video analytics techniques, to intelligent search and recommendation systems.

The contributions made by LV to the research community during its rapid development include more than 300 technical papers, 6 best paper and best student paper prizes from prestigious venues (including ACM MM), 6 winner prizes for world-level competitions (including PASCAL VOC and ImageNet) on object recognition, and 5 best student paper awards from PREMIA.

The LV group currently has 9 PhD students, 4 research fellows and research assistants. Till 2016, 12 PhD students, 32 research fellows/assistants and around 25 visiting professors and students had worked in LV and are now holding positions in overseas universities/companies and continue contributing to the community and society.

The LV group is committed to looking beyond the obvious to target at the problems not yet investigated or not yet solved problems whose solutions could radically improve the computer vision and machine learning technologies as well as improve the way people live.
