LIACS Media Lab (LML)
The goal of the LIACS Media Lab (LML) at Leiden University is to conduct state-of-the-art research in the areas of deep learning, artificial intelligence and computer vision.
Their research spans the dominant kinds of media information which are images, video, audio and text, or "multimedia". One of the most ubiquitous society problems is how to browse and search the vast mountain of multimedia information from diverse sources such as smartphones, digital libraries, cultural heritage collections and the Internet. Even though acquiring the multimedia information is straightforward, there currently are no effective solutions for finding multimedia information using everyday common queries. The group has an emphasis on using deep learning and computer vision methods to classify images into human-understandable text and involves using the content such as pixels in images and advanced artificial intelligence and deep neural network algorithms to determine who or what is in the image.
