One of the top achievements by the University of Oulu in machine vision is the Local Binary Pattern method which the University has developed, and the related face recognition, both of which are among the most often cited Finnich ICT research results in the World. Another top field in Oulu is microexpression recognition, which can be used to recognize hidden emotions. The research group has also developed methods for preventing the fooling of biometric recognition systems, receiving acclaim in the scientific community of the field, and in those who apply the methods.
