The group works on important problems in multimedia and signal processing. We not only publish our work in top research journals and conferences but also have collaboration with industry. The group has provided consultancy to many local and overseas companies and organizations including Apple Computer, Jet Propulsion Laboratory NASA and Qualcomm Inc. Since 2006, the group won over HK$13 Million through external research grants.

The group has two laboratories. The Image and Video Processing Laboratory represents CUHK in the Audio Video coding Standard (AVS) work group and our contributions have become a part of the China national video coding standard AVS. We now work with ASTRI to develop new technologies for Future Multimedia Standards. The DSP and Speech Technology Laboratory is well-known for its pioneering work on Chinese spoken language technologies and is a resources hub for Cantonese speech research. The technologies developed in the two laboratories have been licensed to many international companies.

Terahertz Imaging and Spectroscopy

The focus areas of research of Biomedical Engineering Group include: wearable medical devices, biosensors, medical robotics, body area networks and body sensor networks, low-power medical integrated chip, mobile health, telemedicine, terahertz imaging, bionanotechnology and nanomedicine.

This group has been awarded a number of competitive research grants, including RGC earmarked grants, UGC recurrent grants, and ITF, with a total amount of approximately HK$ 65 Million in the last few years. We have also established extensive collaborations locally, nationally, and internationally. For example, to name a few: the ”Joint Universities Consortium on Biomedical Engineering” with PolyU; collaboration with the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Shenzhen Government to establish the Institute of Biomedical and Health Engineering in Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology; and the only non-European country to participate in the PF7 project ”Heart Cycle” led by Philips Research. Additionally, we are the only institute in Hong Kong with a terahertz imaging system.

The excellence and impact in the field of our group has been widely recognized, as reflected by having regular and frequent publications in top journals, wining a number of prestigious awards and honours, holding the position of Editor-in-Chief of premier journal (class A) within the field, and organizing international flagship conferences.
