The computer vision and machine perception lab at Saarland University focuses on 3D computer vision and lifelong learning, where the emphasis lies on building machine perception algorithms that are not rigid but able to adapt to their environment and evolve. The lab connects to surrounding interdisciplinary fields, such as fundamentals, reinforcement learning, natural language processing, and privacy. The lab is headed by Eddy Ilg, who is known for his contributions to computer vision on optical flow and his work on AR technology at Meta.
Saarland University is surrounded by the Saarland Informatics Campus which is one of the leading locations for computer science in Germany and Europe with leading international research institutes, such as the Computer Science Department, the Language Technology Department, the Max Planck Institute for Informatics (MPI-INF), the German Research Center for AI (DFKI) and the CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security (CISPA). The lab is English-speaking and has collaborations with many other famous researchers – inside Saarland Informatics Campus as well as internationally.
