Intelligent Monitoring and Multimedia Processing

Intelligent Monitoring and Multimedia Processing

Research team, led by prof. Andrzej Dziech, focuses on research on security systems, intelligent monitoring, multimedia processing and digital data protection.
A significant impact on the society development was introduced by the INDECT project (Intelligent information system supporting observation, searching and detection for security of citizens in urban environment). This project was conducted in 2009-2015 under the European Union 7th Framework Program. At the time it was the largest European project conducted by a university professor with a budget of 15 million euro (of which 65% was allocated to the Polish partners). The project consortium consisted of 17 partners, of which 11 were the leading European universities.
Numerous world-class innovative solutions in the area of threat detection and data protection were researched and created during the project. The project results were published in over 450 valuable scientific publications. Numerous solutions created in that project by the team of professor Dziech have acquired prizes and honorable mentions at international fairs and innovation exhibitions. Some of those were practically implemented and used by the European Police Forces. Research conducted under the INDECT project have influenced the development of modern, secure society by enhancing their safety and caring for data protection. The research conducted by the team has also contributed to the society by improving urban transportation systems (project INSIGMA) and improving transportation for visually impaired (project TAPAS).
The research conducted by the team has significant impact on the development of the information society and effective utilization of information technologies for improving the quality of life and safety of the citizens.
Many solutions that were developed by the team was acclaimed by the international organizations expressed in form of honourable mentions and prizes (including 6 golden medals) at international fairs and innovation exhibitions. The selected achievement are:

  • Title of the “Star of the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union” for being the most active participant of the 7th Framework Programme
  • Golden Medal of the French Inventors Association
  • Honourable title “Ambassador of the Polish Congress”
  • Medal “Diamond Leader of the National Security 2015”
  • Prize “Symbol of Innovation” by the “Monitor Rynkowy i Rzeczpospolitej” journal 2013
  • Prize “Innovation of the Year 2014” by the “Forum Biznesu” journal
  • Silver medal of the INPROT prototype at the Inventions Fair, Taiwan

For many year the team is the organizer of the international conference “ MCSS-Multimedia Communications, Services and Security.
