Current M.Sc. students

Visiting reseacher

Masahiro Niitsuma has visited our lab for his research project on musical score identification.

dr. Nobuo Ezaki has visited our lab. He obtained a Japanese grant for research in developing an experimental camera-based text reading system in order to be able to realize a text-to-speech conversion for blind people who are navigating a typical city or office environment with text tags.

School of Computing and Cognition

I heartily welcome International Students to take a look at our programmes.
