World
-
class Research Leadership of USF in
Pattern Recognition


Disruptive Technology Office (DTO) has chosen USF

to evaluate
research progress in its Video Analysis and Content Extraction
(VACE) Program



DTO is an office under the

Director of National Intelligence (DNI)



In his letter endorsing this proposal,
DTO Director Dr. Michael
Macedonia

comments on our contributions as follows:



“We feel that through this effort, the VACE program has now been
elevated to a

world
-
class

computer vision
research program

By establishing USF as a Center of Excellence

in this discipline,
it would no doubt expand its capabilities to
support the U.S.
Government research that addresses our national security

interests… Therefore, we the undersigned,
fully and
emphatically endorse this proposal
…”
