Research in this area takes place at the intersection of computer vision, image processing, applied mathematics, medical imaging systems, machine learning, and AI, and is directed at a variety of topics, ranging from the basic “science” of image analysis and understanding, image compression and recovering to robotic vision and machine perception, medical analysis, diagnosis, and interventional systems. Research groups from this field have contributed a lot to the department’s overall publications, citations, and research expenditures, while also translating intellectual property for commercialization with partners and/or for startups.

Primary ECE faculty members in this area are: Muyinatu Bell, Rama Chellappa, A. Brinton Cooper, John Goutsias, Vishal Patel, Jerry Prince, Trac Tran, Archana Venkataraman, and Howard Weinert.
