In Internet searches, a picture could be worth a thousand words. The Rapid-Rich Object Search (ROSE) Lab was conceived in view of the proliferation of mobile internet devices and the growing need to expand search beyond text’s limited capability in describing real-world objects. The Lab is focusing on visual object search; video analytics & deep learning; as well as multimedia forensics & biometrics.
The ROSE Lab is creating an innovation platform for visual search and video analytics applications, by working with major industry players. These partners include Tencent, one of the largest internet companies in Asia; NVIDIA, the world’s leading visual computing company; Accenture, one of the world’s leading management consulting companies; OMRON, one of the world’s leading suppliers of advanced electronics and control systems; and VIPshop, China’s largest fashion eCommerce company.
