Seminar on Image and Video Analysis

The University of Virginia Applied Research Institute (ARI) presents a spring seminar series hosted by Battelle. The series will allow ARI to showcase the depth and range of technology being developed at the University of Virginia for the growing scientific and technology community in the region. The seminars are free and open to the public. Each seminar will be held at Battelle Memorial Institute in the U.Va. Research Park in Charlottesville, Va. Get directions here.

March 4 at 4 p.m.Scott Acton, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Biomedical Engineering – “Image and Video Analysis”

In this talk, Scott Acton describes three active areas of research within the Virginia Image and Video Analysis (VIVA) laboratory. The first area highlights the image segmentation problem, which is a key step in image analysis. Applications such as the segmentation of microscopic cells, the segmentation of the heart in 3-D, and the use of segmentation in content-based image retrieval are detailed. In the second portion of the talk, the problem of target tracking in clutter is addressed. Two tools, the invariant feature transform and the particle filter, are emphasized. Finally, Acton describes the challenges involved with ongoing work in human pose detection and activity recognition from video.

If you are unable to attend in person, participate in this session online through Live Meeting. A software download may be required.
