Computer Vision

The Department of Computer Vision works on projects that involve building intelligence around images and videos. This intelligence can be used to solve many problems in the real world, or just make something more playful! Self-driving cars are a classic application, since they use cameras to detect cars, pedestrians, traffic lights, lane lines and so much more!

Reinforcement Learning

The Department of Reinforcement Learning works on projects that learn how to act in an environment in a way that maximizes some reward. Now this reward can be anything from points scored in a game to dollars earned all the way to lives saved. This type of intelligence focuses on decision making and DeepMindā€™s AlphaGo is a popular reinforcement learning example used by many to demonstrate the potential of artificial intelligence.
