IMAGINE Lab welcomes you!

IMAGINE (Intelligent Media Pervasive, Recognition & Understanding) is a lab established at National Key Lab for Novel Software and Technology at Nanjing University, China. Automatic understanding and visualizing the content of everyday real (big) media data stream is one of the fundamental challenges in computer science, and we believe that significant advances will be made over the next few years by combining the state of the art graphics/image/video analysis tools with emerging machine learning and statistical modeling techniques. The targets of IMAGINE lab include both algorithm/theory exploration and real-life systems developing.

If you are interested in media data analysis, do not hesitate join us. Fell free to contact by, and more details on our research will be introduced to you.
