My current research interests span in general image analysis and understanding, more specifically, three-dimensional computer vision and pattern recognition.
Object recognition and scene reconstruction (also from multisensory data) are issues I am interested in, so as methodologies integrating computer vision and computer graphics. Human-Computer Interaction issues, especially concerning intelligent multimodal interfaces, have been also addressed in my lab.
Clearly, my research is oriented towards real-world applications, like video surveillance, biomedical imaging, quality control and industrial automation in general.
My research, while maintaining a strong contact with real applications, is gradually evolving from being mainly focused on application problem solving to methodological centered, addressing in particular powerful probabilistic and statistical models able to deal with a variety of actual problems in several areas, ranging from computer vision, biomedical image processing, data mining to bioinformatics.
Finally, I am also involved in the design and development of computer vision algorithms in embedded architectures. This activity is in rapid expansion and gave rise to the first spin off of the University of Verona, eVS embedded Vision Systems.
