Video & Image Sense Lab

We make sense of video and images with artificial and human intelligence. The lab studies computer vision, deep learning and cognitive science. We are based at the Informatics Institute of the University of Amsterdam.

The VIS Lab embeds four public-private AI labs. QUVA Lab with Qualcomm, Atlas Lab with TomTom, AIM Lab with the Inception Institute of Artificial Intelligence and POP-AART with the Netherlands Cancer Institute and Elekta Oncology Systems. Spin-off's from the lab include Kepler Vision Technologies and
