Multiple research teams at Fraunhofer IGD are working on methods to significantly improve the quality of underwater images and make them easier to analyze. The underlying goal is to “remove the water.”
Visual computing has benefits for doctors and patients beyond conventional medical treatment. These technologies can be harnessed to better organize care facilities—enhancing efficiency and delivering a more personalized service.
We recognize people primarily by their faces. It therefore makes sense that this particular biometric marker is being increasingly adopted in the world of electronics—to unlock smartphones, to identify criminals, and more. However, security mechanisms based on facial recognition are fallible. Researchers at Fraunhofer IGD are seeking to eliminate vulnerabilities.
