Department of Image Processing

Publications ÚTIA: 

The Department is involved in basic research in image processing and pictorial pattern recognition. Major application areas are biomedicine, remote sensing, astronomy, and art conservation.

Main scientific areas
  • Recognition of distorted images and patterns by invariant descriptors regardless of their actual position in the scene
  • Registration and fusion of several images of the same scene taken at different times, by different sensors and/or from different viewpoints in order to obtain information of higher quality
  • Theory of moment invariants, namely of rotation invariants, affine invariants and invariants to convolution
  • Restoration of degraded images, namely multichannel blind deconvolution, edgepreserving denoising, local contrast enhancement, and color transformations
  • Image forensics - detection of image forgeries
  • Cultural heritage applications - cooperation with art conservators in order to facilitate the conservation and material analysis work

In the past decade, we have seen a remarkable growth in ability to capture and distribute digital videos. But, taking into consideration the availability of too many powerful and user-friendly video editors, the question is how to verify the authenticity of these digital videos. The problem becomes crucial, when it comes to videos used in courts as evidences or journalism.

We addresses one of the key problems of image processing, which is restoration of a latent image from its degraded observations. As the main source of degradation we consider convolution with a unknown blur. The restoration task is a blind deconvolution problem, which is intrinsically ill-posed.

Automatic processing of microscopic images allows (compared to manual processing by human operator) a better and more efficient acquisition of a large amount of information stored in the captured images. When working with time-lapse images, we need to segment cells from the background, to determine their exact boundaries and monitor their movements.

Digital image acquisition is often accompanied with its degradation by blur (out-of-focus, motion etc.) and noise. In many cases, the degradation process can be modeled by convolution g=u*h+n where g denotes the acquired image, u the original image, h the convolution mask (blur), and n random noise. The goal of deconvolution is to recover the original image based on the observed image.
