Team

The S3A team is comprised of 10 Post-doctoral researchers, 8 Research leaders experts and 4 Stream leaders across the 4 different partners (Surrey, Salford, Southampton and the BBC). The project is lead by Prof Adrian Hilton (Professor of Computer Vision and Director of the Centre for Vision Speech & Signal Processing – one of the largest activities in audio and visual signal processing in the UK).
