Center for Applied Linguistics Hasselt University
The research group Centre for Applied Linguistics (CTL) carries out pluridisciplinary research. Important research domains of CTL are:
- cross-cultural research (mainly verbal and non verbal communication)
- communication needs and problems of specific populations (mainly business-oriented, possibly targeting a specific sector and/or job category)
- semi-autonomous blended learning (effectiveness and ...
Centre for Applied Linguistics Hasselt University
The research goal is applying state-of-the-art computer vision techniques as a solution for industry-specific vision problems. In order to meet stringent execution speed, energy footprint, costand price requirements, the developed algorithms are implemented and optimized on embedded systems, such as GPUs, DSPs and FPGAs.

Audio Visual Signal Processing Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Nowadays, audio-visual scene analysis becomes more and more important in many areas. A typical application regards teleconferencing systems for enhanced multimodal communication, or to steer electronically the camera to the active speaker without a human operator. But also in surveillance systems the audio-visual perception is of great interest for intruder detection, behaviour and event analysis, etc ... A further example affects the ...
