Multimedia Signal Processing and Understanding Lab

The Multimedia Signal Processing and Understanding Lab (mmlab) deals with relevant aspects of multimedia data processing, focusing on both theoretical and application-driven research issues.

Since media can be considered as the technological extensions of human capabilities, particular attention is paid to smart multimedia data management, analysis, transmission, authentication and protection, and to those applications where ambient intelligence can provide advanced services beyond human limitations.
