The Elder Laboratory: Human and Computer Vision

Our laboratory conducts research in human and computer vision. This research involves psychophysical experiments on human subjects, mathematical analysis of problem constraints, and development of computational models and algorithms.

This laboratory is part of the York University Centre for Vision Research. Students in the laboratory are typically registered in Computer Science, Psychology or Mathematics Departments.

Our goals are to develop better theories of visual processing, as well as practical knowledge and algorithms that may be applied to problems in visual surveillance, remote learning and geomatics applications. We collaborate with a number of companies and government organizations on this applied research.

The laboratory is funded by grants and contracts from:

  • The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC)
  • The Centre for Information Visualization and Data-Driven Design (CIVDDD)
  • The Ministry of Transportation Ontario (MTO)
  • Ontario Centres of Excellence (OSE)
