University of Genoa (UG)

Department of Biophysical and Electronic Engineering (DIBE),
PSPC-Group

The Department of Biophysical and Electronic Engineering (DIBE), with its research groups active in Electronics, Telecommunication, Bioengineering, Circuits and Systems, Electromagnetic Fields, and Mathematical Physics, is a well-established centre of collaborations and contracts with the European Commission, national and international Research Agencies and Industries. It counts 34 professors and researchers, 10 lecturers, 29 Ph. D. students, 20 units of technical and administrative staff. Within DIBE, the "Physical Structures of Perception and Computation" (PSPC-Group) is active since 1995 in investigating the physical processes of biological vision to inspire the designing of artificial perceptual machines based on neuromorphic computational paradigms. The group has a long-standing expertise in developing functional models of cortical visual processing, linking theoretical neuroscience to computer vision. In particular, specific models and algorithms based on early joint processing of motion and stereo information has been recently developed.
