BASiCS (Berkeley Audio-visual Signal processing and Communication Systems)

 

Our lab’s main research interests are in the area of peer-to-peer networks, multimedia processing, information and coding theory and collaborative signal processing.

The theme of our lab is to design highly robust large scale systems comprising of unreliable individual entities.

BASiCS in the limelight!
