Signal processing technology to extract required information from image, sound, and biometric signals
At Keio University, the Mitsukura Laboratory, in the Department of System Design Engineering, researchers are currently conducting research on how to extract required information from biometric, image and audio signal data. To achieve this, the researchers utilize technologies such as signal processing, machine learning, pattern recognition, artificial intelligence, and statistical processing.
In image signal processing research, the Mitsukura Lab works on position matching between real and virtual space, which is the basis for AR technology. These researchers are developing a method for estimating the orientation of a face at high speed with high precision, to link the motion of an actual person with an animation. Another research topic at the Mitsukura Lab is expression recognition, using information about changes in the eyebrows and corners of the mouth. The Lab is also researching how to overlay virtual data used in head-mount displays in the real world.
