Welcome to Vision and Image Processing Lab

VIP logoThe Vision and Image Processing Lab is a research group under the Systems Design Engineering Department at the University of Waterloo. The VIP Lab is dedicated to understanding visual processes and finding solutions for the outstanding problems in visual processing and perception, as well as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and intelligent systems for a wide variety of applications. The VIP Lab, a proud member of Partnership on AI, is also focused on pushing the boundaries of AI by tackling the key operational challenges surrounding widespread adoption of AI and enabling AI to become an empowering technology for anyone, anywhere, anytime. Towards this goal, two of the key areas of research interest for the VIP Lab are scalable AI (through human-machine collaborative design empowered by AI building AI), and transparent and responsible AI (through AI explaining AI), both of which are key to enabling widespread ethical use of AI for real-world societal impact.
