SI (Signals & Images) is a Lab working in the fields of signal processing, image understanding and artificial vision..

The Lab was born on the consideration that sensorial information is increasing its importance in both our daily life and the most advanced technological and scientific contexts. In particular, visual and audio information is becoming the most significant part of the global information to be processed, understood and manipulated.

The general goal of the Lab is to increase the knowledge in the fields of signal processing, image understanding and artificial vision, in both theoretical and applicative contexts. This will be achieved by studying and developing models, computer-based methods and machines for the formation, elaboration, analysis and recognition of images and signals, and by applying these methods and techniques to several sectors of the public and private society having strategic, scientific and technological interests.

The aim of SI Lab is to develop its activities dynamically, becoming part of the national and international networks in the field of automated vision. Particular attention will be paid to the most advanced research programs and high-level education programs, to the creation of new channels of technical-scientific and industrial cooperation, and possibly to the promotion of spin off initiatives.
