Vision, Graphics and Computational Design (VGD) Group

The Vision, Graphics and Computational Design (VGD) Group at HKUST led by Prof. Sai-Kit Yeung performs cutting-edge research on 3D contents reconstruction, understanding, modeling, and redesign, and uses AI techniques for design and content generation, human-robot interaction, and novel algorithms to enhance VR and AR applications.

The VGD group is also working very closely with marine biologists, field ecologists, and coral conservationists to develop novel computer vision and graphics techniques and integrative systems to solve a wide range of marine-related problems.
