Pursing Artificial Vision

The Vision, Perception and Learning Laboratory ALCOR Lab is a research laboratory of the Dipartimento di Ingegneria Informatica Automatica e Gestionale (DIAG) at Sapienza University of Rome, Italy. 

Research at AlcorLab covers topics of Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition & Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Multimedia applied to optical images and videos as well as data from different sensors. 

The main research projects concern: 

Green AI (Beekeeping and Vertical Farming)
Multimedia Forensics
Deep Learning Theory
Visual Knowledge Acquisition: Activity Recognition & Object Detection

Our History

ALCOR  has been established in 1998.

The research activity focuses mainly on the perceptual inference processes a cognitive robotics system should be able to prompt, in order to develop its knowledge about the environment and act as a mindful system.

We work both on the perceptual inference processes and on the control and planning methods based on perception.  The objective is to deal with many kind of conditions: from factory settings to harsh and unstructured settings, such as post disaster areas.

On the perceptual side we study and develop both representation and inference methods related to recognition. The recognition process is investigated as an effective inference process that informs and determines the formation of knowledge about the environment.
