UW-SIG Research Issues


The projects that we are involved with give rise to many interesting and challenging research issues in structural informatics. Since many of the people in this group are either in or strongly associated with computer science, we describe these issues in terms of computer science subdisciplines.

Image understanding and graphics

Spatial knowledge representation, image segmentation, 3-D reconstruction, visualization.

Artificial intelligence
