The ISIA Lab, in the Numediart institute of UMONS, centers its activities on the application of AI algorithms to the creative and cultural industries.
A first axis of research focusses on multimedia information retrieval, i.e. image, language and sound detection/processing/tagging from large multimedia databases
A second axis of research focusses on the development of technologies for smart spaces. This includes technologies to understand human interactions, visual attention, motivation, etc. This axis also uses the developed technologies for AR/VR applications.
A third axis of research focusses on the development of technologies for motion capture, meaning motion detection, automatic analysis and synthesis.
A fourth axis of research focusses on "edge AI", i.e. how to embed AI on mobile devices.
Finally, ISIA lab has also developed a broader expertise in image analysis and takes part in projects with various applications like food industry and video surveillance.
