Research in the Computational Imaging
Lab (CIL) of Department of
Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at University of Central Florida bridges the three main areas of Image/Video Processing, Computer Vision, and Machine Learning. CIL’s mission is to promote state-of-the-art research and highest quality education on the intersection of these three areas of computer science and engineering. Recent research at CIL has focused on 3D modeling, imaging sensors, space imaging, medical imaging, subspace clustering, compressive sensing, deep learning, big data analytics, and the connection between visual information and the natural language semantics and ontology. Projects in CIL are funded by NSF, NASA, DoD, and industry.
Featured Project: Global-scale Observations of the Limb and Disk (GOLD) project was selected in 2012 to receive a $64M grant from NASA’s Explorers program for flight as a mission of opportunity. Dr. Foroosh leads the mission's Science Data Center at UCF. This is the largest single grant in the history of UCF. GOLD will study the magnetic storms and the space weather using an ultraviolet multi-spectral imager that will be launched into the geostationary orbit in 2017.
