Computer Vision Laboratory at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, EU has 18 members. Most of us do research in biometrics. We tackle topics from ear recognition, sclera and ocular region recognition, face deidentification, face privacy preservation, fingermarks quality assessment, biometrics synthetic data generation, to deepfake detection, virtual garment try-on. In this presentation I will go through the advancements we made in the last year with the goal to identify possible collaboration topics.
