Koppal Receives NSF CAREER Award for Active Computer Vision

University of Florida‘s Electrical and Computer Engineering assistant professor Sanjeev Koppal, Ph.D., has received a prestigious NSF CAREER Award for his project, “Fast Foveation: Bringing Active Vision into the Camera.” The five-year award will support Dr. Koppal’s research in the area of foveation, the process through which the eye fixates on the object of interest in a visual field.

Koppal’s research applies foveation to computer vision—cameras combined with artificial intelligence which attempt to automate the tasks done by human visual systems. The fast-foveating cameras will be able to automatically scan a visual scene, determine the item of interest, and focus on that item, much more quickly and efficiently than current systems.
