Research Agenda

The Visual Computing & Artificial Intelligence Lab at TUM, is a group of research enthusiasts advancing cutting-edge research at the intersection of computer vision, computer graphics, and artificial intelligence. Our research mission is to obtain highly-realistic digital replica of the real world, which include representations of detailed 3D geometries, surface textures, and material definitions of both static and dynamic scene environments. In our research, we heavily build on advances in modern machine learning, and develop novel methods that enable us to learn strong priors to fuel 3D reconstruction techniques. Ultimately, we aim to obtain holographic representations that are visually indistinguishable from the real world, ideally captured from a simple webcam or mobile phone. We believe this is a critical component in facilitating immersive augmented and virtual reality applications, and will have a substantial positive impact in modern digital societies.

Keywords: Visual Computing, 3D Vision, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, 3D Reconstruction, Scene Understanding, Neural Rendering, Neural Scene Representations
Our lab is located at the research campus in Garching. Inside the Faculty of Computer Science, the slide enables both students and visitors to make the journey down from the fourth floor a little quicker than might be expected.
