We began as a small group in September 2009 with a vision of building a team of students with expertise in Computer Vision.
The idea for the formation of such a club was seeded in 2008 when the IIT Madras team had represented India at the International Aerial Robotics Competition (IARC). CVI which competed against elite teams, from other top Universities in IARC 2009, was acknowledged as the best vision team among all the participating teams.
Centre for Innovation, IIT Madras
We have been fortunate to be a part of IIT Madras’ incredible student driven innovation community, spearheaded by the Centre for Innovation (CFI). CVI is one of the many clubs present in the Centre for Innovation (CFI), IIT Madras.
A Unique History
Being the only CFI club out of which a start-up has grown, CVI has extraordinary mentorship and motivated and committed members, who have completed Industrial Projects by ITC, The Indian Railways, VDime, Eye hospital CHECK and multiple machine learning projects.
As a club, we undertake projects ranging about topics from computer vision, deep learning, reinforcement learning and natural language processing. We are actively involved in projects and conduct sessions among our college community in these areas: with the hope of impacting society with bleeding edge technology.
