In 2015, an extensive archaeological programme led by
the French Ministry of Culture and the University of Montpellier set up a
scientific collaboration with Khaled Nabil Salama, Professor from CEMSE
Division and co-worker Professor Christian R. Voolstra, from the KAUST
Red Sea Research Center, in partnership with Stanford University and
Meka Robotics, in California, to develop Ocean One, an agile avatar that
affords immediate and haptic-visual interaction – the process of
recognizing objects through touch - in the ocean environment at depths
greater than 50m.

Today, querying the massive amounts of images available in online databases such as Instagram can be a time-consuming experience. Researchers from the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and the University College London, have developed a new tool that generates image queries based on a geometric description of objects in spatial relationships with potential applications in computer graphics, computer vision and automated object classification.
