SPIRIT stands for SPatial Interactions In Textures

SPIRIT is a research project at the junction of image processing and cellular biology, gathering several teams around the texture analysis and simulation issues.

Texture modeling is a key fundamental research problem in computer vision and graphics systems. It play an important role in many important medical imaging applications. Some of these medical imaging applications are based on a specific kind of textures, made of a limited number of distinct elements (cell, fiber structure, etc.). These elements are spatially arranged following patterns that often reflect pathological behaviors. The motivation behind this project is to propose texture models that are able to efficiently capture, describe and simulate the relationships existing between the elements in an image.
