All Campuses will now be closed for teaching and social activities

Following the clear imperative in the latest government advice to avoid all non-essential contact with others and avoid unnecessary travel, the decision has been made to suspend all teaching and social activities on campus and to close all libraries, sports facilities, theatres, catering facilities and cancel events.

We have further advice and guidance for our staff and students on our Covid-19 Corona Virus site

Inaugural Professorial Lecture by Sonya Coleman, Professor of Vision Systems

Sonya Coleman, Professor of Vision Systems presents as part of the Civic Lecture Series her Inaugural Professorial Lecture

Computer vision plays a central role in robotics, giving robots the ability to “see” and carry out tasks using visual information. Techniques are often based on mathematical methods or, more recently, use knowledge and characteristics of the human visual system. In concert with vision, humans use touch when exploring and interacting with the world around them. Just as for humans, it is important for robots not only to understand visual characteristics such as the shape and size of objects that they encounter, but also to be able to assess their weight or texture. In this talk we will explore a range of approaches to image and tactile processing and their applications to empowering robots with sensing capabilities similar to humans.

This event is open to everyone.
