Research Interests
  • Computer Vision for human computer interaction
  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence

Software & Libraries

Those are software and development libraries I often used:
  • OpenCV: an open source computer vision library developed by Intel.
  • VXL: a collection of open source C++ libraries for Computer Vision.


This is a software project I started to practice C# language:
  • SharpView.Net : an image viewer with interface similar to ACDSee.
