Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP)
Creating machines that can see and hear to understand the world around them.
Our Centre is an internationally recognised leader in audio-visual machine perception research. With a diverse community of more than 150 researchers, we are one of the largest audio and vision research groups in the UK.
Research in the Centre has led to award-winning spin-out companies in the biometric, communication, medical and creative industries.
"CVSSP is developing some of the most exciting and ground-breaking technologies: From facial recognition for security and medical imaging understanding for cancer detection, through to 3D audio and video for film production and robots that can work safely alongside people."Prof Adrian Hilton, Director, Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing
