PiLAB is a research team from the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies, Electronics and Applied Mathematics (ICTEAM), within the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Belgium. The team is led by Professor Benoît Macq and counts around 30 researchers, involved in 3 main research topics: Signal & Pixels, Medical Imaging, and Interaction.
Inspired from fundamental research, we design innovative software and hardware signal processing solutions. Our research activity includes analysis, transformation, secure transmission and efficient representation of any signal (image, speech, lidar, biosignals, etc.).
Medical imaging is key to developing personalized medicine. In our lab, we perform medical image acquisition, processing and analysis in order to adapt treatment to suit each individual patient. Our focus is to develop methods to advance adaptive radiotherapy and investigate brain microstructure degeneracies.
We employ multimodal HCI and user-centred design to deliver a great User Experience. Our research aims to develop more effective, immersive and entertaining ways of interaction. We collaborate with SMEs active in the domain and launch our own startups.
