list

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

Today, imaging techniques are essential part of common medical practice. Among these techniques, image registration and fusion plays important role. The task of image registration (or alignment) is to find geometrical transform between two images that eliminates the difference in patient position during image acquisition.

This project is concerned with the detection of digital image forgery. The area has an unexplored character and there is alot to do. Authentication of digital images play an important role in forensic investigation, criminal investigation,insurance processing, surveillance systems, intelligence services and journalism.The project is supposed to be carried out in five stages .
Duration: 2008 - 2010
This project concerns superresolution (SR) of digital images and videos. SR means an improvement of spatial resolution of images beyond the physical limit of the sensor. The central idea of SR is combining a sequence of low-resolution images in order to produce higher resolution image.
Duration: 2007 - 2008
In the process of artwork restoration a restorers report is written, which among others contains materials research of taken microscopic samples. The aim of this research is to identify organic and inorganic compounds using microanalytical methods. The results are used to interpret the painting technique of original paint and re-paints and to describe secondary changes of painting materials.
Duration: 2007 - 2008
The project aims to utilize methods of digital image processing and pattern recognition in automatic classification of phytopathogenic fungi (within a selected taxonomy group) from microscopy images. First, proper biological specimens will be acquired, photographed and documented in cooperation with the Department of Phytopathology.
Duration: 2007 - 2008
The project proposal is a continuation of our current joint project “Multifocus and multimodal image fusion techniques for biomedical applications” and the previous one “New developments on multimodality image fusion and spatial variant image processing”, which both have been very successful.
