Computer vision is a difficult family of problems, and no single organization will solve any one problem on their own. Instead, we must collaborate across our research and development communities. This hastens the pace of technology innovation, and keeps us focused on solving important problems. Rank One supports the OpenBR software project for these reasons, and we strive to publish our research and referee within academic communities such as the IEEE and the IAPR.

Below is some of our research legacy. We hope to continue growing this list over the coming years.
