Multimedia, Interaction, and Communication (MIC)

The Multimedia, Interaction, and Communication (MIC) group extends the state of the art of multimedia technologies involving audio, visual, haptic, and other natural signals, comprising acquisition, representation, analysis, compression, transmission, synthesis, and rendering. We apply our expertise in computer vision, acoustics, multimedia signal processing, and information coding to improve people's experience in interacting with each other and with machines.

The applications the MIC group has been working on are immersive human-human telecommunications, human-robot interaction, augmented reality, multimedia retrieval, etc.

The MIC group is the successor of the Communication and Collaboration Systems group. Please visit http://research.microsoft.com/ccs for our earlier work.

The MIC group is managed by Zhengyou Zhang.
