Prof Anton van den Hengel and Dr Anthony Dick were awarded an ARC Linkage grant for ‘Image search for simulator content creation’:

The World Wide Web contains tens of billions of images, with personal and industrial collections stretching to may times that number. The potential economic value of these image-based resources is enormous, but largely untapped as we have no practical way of recovering the images we need. This project will develop image search technologies which will allow Australian industry to exploit these important resources. Some of the wide variety of possible applications might include the searching of surveillance video for objects of interest, vision-based guidance of unmanned vehicles, smart-phone and smart-home systems which understand their environments, and stock tracking systems which can detect spoilage.
