about us

The mission of our group is to advance knowledge related to the analysis, management, and making sense of large and complex visual data, and to contribute to the society through dissemination of research findings and education of future leaders in this field.
The group has published two monographs and over 40 journal articles (Google Scholar profile). Notable technologies developed by the group include the SIMPLIcity image retrieval engine, the ALIPR real-time automatic image annotation system, the Acquine aesthetic quality inference engine, and the brushstroke style analysis methods for oil paintings. Past Ph.D. students of the group have taken tenure-track faculty and research scientist positions, right after graduation. In the summers, graduate students have participated in internships at Adobe Research, Apple, AT&T Labs, Google Research, HP Labs, IBM Research, IDIAP Switzerland, Kodak Research, Merck Research, NEC Research, SONY Research, Telefonica R&D Barcelona, Xerox PARC, and Yahoo!, among others. The group welcomes talented and motivated graduate and undergraduate students with strong computational and mathematical/statistical skills. Apply to join the group as a PhD student here.

Download Datasets

We provide datasets for research comparison. If you cannot find the data that you need, you may contact Dr. Wang.

Download 10,000 test images (low resolution web-crawled misc database used in WBIIS);
download 1,000 test images (test database used in SIMPLIcity paper)(zip);
If you need the 60,000-image database used in SIMPLIcity, ALIPR, and ALIP papers for research comparison, please contact James Wang.
The databases should be used only for comparing algorithms, which can be considered as 'fair use' of the images and our metadata. You should not redistribute the images.
These datasets have been used in our publications.

If you are a government agency, an education institution, or a non-profit organization, we may offer you a FREE license of the SIMPLIcity system to run on Linux or Solaris. Please contact Prof. James Wang by email to discuss details. At the moment, the C source code is not ready for public download. If you are commercial and would like to use SIMPLIcity, let us know and we will try to arrange to let you use.

We are planning to release some other software packages via this site in the future. Stay tuned.
