About MHUG

MHUG (Multimedia and Human Understanding Group) is a research group at the University of Trento, Italy. The main interests of MHUG are focusing on the investigation and implementation of new techniques in the fields of computer vision and multimedia computing.

In computer vision, we seek to develop effective algorithms that are expected be used to replicate one of the most amazing capabilities of the human brain-inferring properties to partially perceive the external visual world, including various tasks such as action recognition, 2D/3D object detection, large-scale event detection and video analysis. 

In multimedia computing, our research focuses on three aspects: multimedia information retrieval, social computing and affective computing. The specific research topics include cross media retrieval, multi-modal learning, social media analysis and emotion detection, etc.
