Imagination Inspired Vision

Imagination Inspired Vision

Internship Description

Imagination has been the source of novel ideas that enable humanity to progress at an ever-faster rate. It is also is one of the key properties of human intelligence that enables us to generate creative products like music and art. Imagination is not only helpful for creating Art and Fashion, it also helps us see the world. The goal of this project is to focus on developing techniques that empower AI machines to see the world (computer vision) or to create novel products (e.g., fashion and art), hence the name Imagination Inspired Vision.
