This website is dedicated to bio.med.rix, a work-group at the Institute for Computer Graphics and Vision, Graz University of Technology. We focus on research in computer vision and image analysis algorithms applied to two distinct areas of application. First, biometrics related applications like fingerprint analysis and facial image processing, and second, medical image analysis in the form of registration and segmentation algorithms. More...

Biomedrix is an important figure in ancient Gallic-Roman history. Born in the same gallic village where famous Asterix comes from, he dedicated his life to two tasks. First, he guarded entrance to the village by applying biometric image analysis on guests. Features like fingerprints and recognition of faces after facial image normalization were used. Second, he was an apprentice to the great druid Miraculix, supporting him in medical investigations of inhabitants using modern 3D imaging devices like MR and CT.

Biomedrix Miraculix Antibiotix
It is not known exactly how Biomedrix looked like, historians still argue about that issue. A majority of historians assume him to be the person on the left image. Biomedrix was the apprentice of Miraculix (middle) and a good friend of Antibiotix (right).
