IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia

Prof. Aggelos K. Katsaggelos will deliver a Plenary Talk at the IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia (ISM 2015) on Tuesday, Dec 15 in Miami, FL. His presentation is titled, "Learning for Future Video."

Prof. Aggelos K. Katsaggelos Abstract: Learning has made it possible to unleash the power of data. We have moved away from the detailed modeling of a system or a phenomenon of interest thanks to the abundance of data as well as the huge improvements in processing power. With approaches like dictionary learning we can discover linear relationships between the input and output. On the other hand, recent advancements in deep learning have made it possible to discover non-linear relationships. As one of the examples in this talk we discuss the application of dictionary and deep learning to the video super-resolution problem. We describe a multiple-frame algorithm based on dictionary learning and motion estimation. We further describe the use of a convolutional neural network that is trained on both the spatial and temporal dimensions of videos to enhance their resolution. We demonstrate experimentally the effectiveness of these approaches. We finally discuss future research directions on the topic of learning.

The IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia (ISM2015) is an international forum for researchers to exchange information regarding advances in the state of the art and practice of multimedia computing, as well as to identify the emerging research topics and define the future of multimedia computing. The technical program of ISM2015 will consist of invited talks, paper presentations, and panel discussions.
