Viper stands for Visual Information Processing for Enhanced Retrieval

The Viper group is one of the research groups of the Computer Science Department of the University of Geneva (under CVML).

The Viper group is thus also a research group of the Computer Science Center (CUI) of the University of Geneva.

This site is mantained by Stephane Marchand-Maillet and all the Viper team members… It is continuously under construction :-/

This site is maintained using DokuWiki. The Viper group thanks this community for this interesting and useful contribution!!!!


All Viper demos are provided for academic research purposes only.

The data are accessible via these services (using the local Viper server at University of Geneva) with the approval of their respective owners. They have been included “as is”.

Much care has been taken so as to ensure moral and legal validity of the image collections. However, no liability is assumed concerning the content and interpretation of these images.

No liability on the type of images presented via this service connected to any external server is endorsed.

No liability on the quality or interpretation of the results of similarity searches is assumed.

The data logged from user interaction will serve statistical purposes in normal circumstances. However, under particular illicit circumstances (see below), the user is warned here that this data may be used to control illicit usage of this service.

These services should not be used for illegal or immoral purposes, in accordance with Swiss laws and the laws operating in the country from which the interaction originates. In particular, any attempt to use these services in conjunction with documents including political, violence or sexual features (eg pornography) is considered as sufficient to justify the use of the above mentioned data in other to counter such usage. It is made clear here that in such cases, the Viper team might use any mean to defeat such attempts and track down their authors.

Anyone not agreeing with the above should NOT USE THESE SERVICES and MUST LOG OFF FROM OUR SYSTEM IMMEDIATELY. By entering these services, you implicitly state that your interaction with these services will comply with the above.

The Viper team.
