Research Areas:

Computer vision; Machine Learning; Image processing; Time-lapse video processing; Video surveillance; Medical imaging.

Research Overview:

Dr. Jacobs is developing algorithms capable of understanding the natural world through long-term visual observations.  His approach is to use contextual cues to support fast, accurate interpretation of current imagery.  The core of this effort is the development of a framework for interpreting imagery which models how time, geo-location, weather, scene objects, and the camera itself define an image that is captured.  This basic research leads to improved accuracy and robustness in a range of applications domains, from surveillance to environmental monitoring.  For additional details see his personal webpage.
