IMAGINE (previously CERTIS) is a research group of Ecole des Ponts ParisTech (ENPC). It is part of the Laboratoire d'informatique Gaspard-Monge (LIGM), a computer science lab of Universite Paris Est (UPE). It is located close to Paris. IMAGINE is working on:
  • computer vision (in particular 3D reconstruction and scene understanding)
  • machine learning
  • optimization
