Alan Turing Institute computer vision research boosted with m cloud computing platform

The Alan Turing Institute in the UK has been awarded $5 million worth of Microsoft Azure cloud computing credits to support its research into data science. Researchers at the institute will use the Azure cloud computing platform to undertake computer-intensive activities such as computer vision, data analytics at scale, machine learning and data visualization. Chris Russell, a research fellow in computer vision and machine learning at the institute, will use the cloud to improve 3D image reconstruction of dynamic objects captured with a single camera.  ‘One area of my research is how I can produce vivid and lifelike 3D models from simple camera footage,’ Russell explained. ‘Even though the code I produce is fast enough to run on a home laptop, in order to get the best 3D reconstructions on…
