Active Shape and Appearance Models

Impact: Technological impacts, Economic impacts, Health impacts, Cultural impacts

Narrative

Our research on Active Shape Models (ASMs) and Active Appearance Models (AAMs) opened up a radically new approach to automated image interpretation, with applications in industrial inspection, medical image analysis, and face tracking/recognition. We identify:
 direct economic impacts of at least $20m pa, with much larger indirect impacts;
 healthcare impacts in non-invasive cardiac monitoring, accurate detection of growth deficit, and more efficient drug trials; and
 cultural impacts in cinema and computer games.
