Image Processing and Understanding Team (IPU)


Today’s image data has grown exponentially; whether from mobile photos, social media images, CCTV footage from traffic or surveillance cameras, or images from medical devices, for example. New innovations  are made possible from the processing of these image data. The Image Processing and Understanding (IPU) team focuses on R&D on the image technologies and pushing them to solve real-world tasks.



Building the foundation and bringing the image, video, and 3D technologies into action.


  • To strengthen R&D in Image, Video, and 3D technologies using AI in order to solve real-world problems
  • To collaborate with partners in applying the developed technologies for the benefit of Thai society
  • To create and to share knowledge with researchers and students outside the organization, in order to develop new workforce on image technology.
