ILAC (Image-based cLassification of Ancient Coins) is a research project in an interdisciplinary topic, computer vision together with numismatics. Numismatics is at a point where it can benefit greatly from the application of computer vision methods, and in turn provides a large number of new, challenging and interesting conceptual problems and data for computer vision. … Continue reading ILAC

CAPRI

Humans are dealing with 3D object detection and recognition in their everyday life. In computer vision applications, 3D information is often gathered by using multiple cameras. When multiple cameras having an overlapping view and a wide baseline are used it is not possible to reconstruct an observed object based on corresponding points because such features … Continue reading CAPRI

The Sinaitic Glagolitic Sacramentary (Euchologium) Fragments
