Computer image processing has established itself in last decades as an independent broad research area, which lies among applied mathematics, computer science, and engineering.
Computer image processing has established itself in last decades as an independent broad research area, which lies among applied mathematics, computer science, and engineering. One of the most important challenges is a developing of methods which are able to extract information from images that are seriously corrupted. Typical examples of this kind of data are photographs blurred by motion or by wrong focus.
Two approaches will be presented in the talk – a traditional one based on image deconvolution and an alternative approach which describes and recognizes objects directly by means of invariants. Numerous practical applications of the both approaches will be demonstrated in the talk.
Prof. Ing. Jan Flusser, DrSc. is an internationally recognized researcher in digital image processing and pattern recognition using moment invariants. He has authored more than two hundred publications in top international journals and conference proceedings and presented a number of invited talks and tutorials. He is a co-author of the monograph J. Flusser, T. Suk, B. Zitová: Moments and Moment Invariants in Pattern Recognition, Wiley 2009.
He has served as a director of the Institute of Information Theory and Automation, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic since 2007. Professor Flusser has been a lecturer at the Charles University Faculty of Mathematics and Physics since 1991 and at the Faculty of Nuclear Science and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University since 1995. He has supervised a number of PhD. theses. His received the Award of the Chairman of the Czech Science Foundation (2007), the Prize of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic (2007) and the SCOPUS 1000 Award (2010).
Its program consists of a one-hour lecture followed by a discussion. The lecture is based on an (internationally) exceptional or remarkable achievement of the lecturer, presented in a way which is comprehensible and interesting to a broad computer science community. The lectures is in English.
The seminar is organized by the organizational committee consisting of Roman Barták (Charles University, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics), Michal Chytil (Czech Academy of Sciences, Computer Science Institute), Pavel Kordík (Czech Tech. Univ., Faculty of Information Technologies), Jan Kybic (Czech Tech. Univ., Faculty of Electrical Engineering), Michal Pěchouček (Czech Tech. Univ., Faculty of Electrical Engineering), Jiří Sgall (Charles University, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics), Vojtěch Svátek (University of Economics, Faculty of Informatics and Statistics), Michal Šorel (Czech Academy of Sciences, Institute of Information Theory and Automation), Tomáš Werner (Czech Tech. Univ., Faculty of Electrical Engineering), and Filip Železný (Czech Tech. Univ., Faculty of Electrical Engineering)
The idea to organize this seminar emerged in discussions of the representatives of several research institutes on how to avoid the undesired fragmentation of the Czech computer science community.
