University of Applied Sciences (Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft) Dresden
Since 2010, Cognitec has been working with the department of artificial intelligence at HTW Dresden on the development of intelligent service assistance systems/humanoid robots that will react naturally and intuitively to the human user. Face recognition can lend robots a multitude of capabilities: detecting faces, estimating a person's gender and age, following faces in space and sensing moods.
University of Surrey
Cognitec is working with the University of Surrey on face models and improved face recognition for facial information extracted from multiple frames in video sequences. This involves fitting a 2D or 3D morphable face model to input face images, without restriction to the subject’s pose.
Technical University Dresden
Cognitec supports research projects at the Institute of Mathematics at the TU Dresden that study support vector machines and numerical optimization.
