MEDIA RESEARCH LAB

The Media Research Lab conducts a broad range of research in computer graphics, geometric modeling, reflectance measurement and modeling, simulation, visualization, scientific computing, machine learning, computer vision, mobile robotics, innovative new user interface devices and human-computer interaction.

MOVEMENT LAB

The NYU movement group is a motion capture lab and research group dedicated to the analysis and animation of all forms of human movement. Many projects are at the boundary between computer science, dance, performance art, animation, medical research, and other uses of motion capture technology.

COMPUTATIONAL AND BIOLOGICAL LEARNING LAB

The Computational and Biological Learning Lab's main research goal is to devise new methods, theories, and algorithms to derive knowledge from data: the process commonly known as learning. Understanding learning is a necessary step toward building intelligent systems that can learn from experience. It may also give us a better understanding of the mechanisms that underly human and animal intelligence.

GAMES FOR LEARNING INSTITUTE

The NYU Games for Learning Institute (G4LI) is dedicated to advancing the design, use, and evaluation of computer games in formal and informal educational settings. The Institute works to provide fundamental scientific evidence of "what works" in games for learning - what makes certain games compelling and playable, and what design elements make games educationally effective. The results provide critically important information to researchers, game developers, and educators, and point the way to a new era of using games for educational purposes.
