Welcome!

PILAB was founded in 2009 under Işık University Computer Science and Engineering Department. Our research focuses on theoretical and applied image processing and computational intelligence.

The themes of our current projects are:

  • Unsupervised deep learning
  • Facial expression analysis and synthesis
  • Object detection and tracking in video
  • Machine vision applications in the industry

Funded projects:

  • Pantograph Defect Detection, Işık University Scientific Research Project 12A301, 2012-2014
  • Expression Recognition Based on Facial Anatomy, TUBITAK 109E061,2009-2012
  • Driver Fatigue Recognition using Pattern Recognition Techniques, Işık University Scientific Research Project 07A301, 2007-2009

PILAB team is composed of one faculty, one PhD student and 3 MS students. We are looking for M.Sc. and PhD students to join our team. Scholarships are available.

We are also open to all Işık University undergraduate students who would like to take part in our projects.
