First meeting in the CSLS series:
Workshop on
Computational Vision and Image Analysis

Thursday, 30 October 2003
2:30 PM - 6:00 PM

| Abstracts

Great advances have been made in the acquisition of image data, from conventional photography, CT scanning, and satellite imaging to the now ubiquitous digital cameras embedded in cell phones and other wireless devices. Although the semantic understanding of the shapes and other objects appearing in images is effortless for human beings, the corresponding problem in machine perception-namely, automatic interpretation via computer programs-remains a major open challenge in modern science. In fact, there are very few systems whose value derives from the analysis rather than collection of image data, and this "semantic gap" impedes scientific and technological advances in many areas, including automated medical diagnosis, robotics, industrial automation, and effective security and surveillance.

In this CSLS Workshop, three distinguished experts in the field of Computational Vision and Image Analysis share their thoughts on the current state of the art and future directions in the field.
