Who are we?
The Video Processing and Understanding Lab, previously known as Grupo de Tratamiento de Imagenes UAM –GTI@UAM-, is a research group focused on digital image processing theory, methods and applications aimed for video sequence analysis and visual content adaptation. The main fields of application are video-surveillance systems and video content repositories (video sequences indexing and retrieval). The activity of the group is mainly oriented the real-time processing of video sequences, and constraints associated to such operation modality are applied to all the lines of research of the group.
The Video Processing and Understanding Laboratory comes from the Grupo de Tratamiento de Imagenes (GTI) at Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, constituted in 1981. In 2003 two GTI professors moved to the Escuela Politécnica Superior at Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, so the GTI became an inter-university group (GTI@UPM y GTI@UAM). In 2008, the GTI@UAM changes his look, maintaining his staff composition, activities and relationship with the GTI.
