Computer Vision

against racism

Welcome to the Computer Vision Lab Dresden    

Computer Vision is a science that develops models and methods for understanding, analysing, acquiring and processing images and in generally high-dimensional “visual” data. Computer Vision is an inter-disciplinary field with strong links to Machine Learning, Optimization, Biology, Computer Graphics, and Human Computer Interaction. The mission of the Computer Vision Lab Dresden is to develop novel theoretical concepts which are practically relevant. We work on a broad set of applications, ranging from physics-based vision to semantic scene understanding, and BioImaging. On the theoretical side we focus on efficient optimization and learning techniques for graphical models.

Open Positions

If you are excited to join a growing team and to explore new opportunities to establish computer vision and machine learning techniques in Dresden - then please see our job offers. Especially the research fields of Computational Biology, 3D Scene Understanding and Physics-based Vision are of interest. We have openings for PostDocs, PhD Students, and Interns
