University of Padova, Italy


Visual Intelligence and Machine Perception (VIMP) is a research group at the Department of Mathematics "Tullio Levi-Civita" of the University of Padova, Italy, led by Lamberto Ballan. VIMP is also affiliated to the Human Inspired Technologies Research Centre (HIT).

We conduct research in computer vision, applied machine (deep) learning, natural language processing and multimedia. We aim at developing artificially intelligent systems to help computers perform visual perception and recognition tasks. The main focus of our current research is on designing models that are capable of effectively exploiting contextual knowledge in presence of sparse and noisy data.

We are always looking out for talented members to join our group. Please take a look at the Join Us page.
