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

Association of Innovative Entrepreneurship of the Czech Republic awarded Ing. Milan Talich, Ph.D. and his team the main prize for their work „Expert system for monitoring of deformations of hazardous objects and locations“, which was created in cooperation with Geodézie Ledeč nad Sázavou s.r.o. This prestigious contest was established in 1996.
Zuzana Bílková, Ph.D. student in the Dept. of Image Processing (ZOI), received the first price in the Cisco Outstanding Thesis Award 2015 competition for her thesis "Segmentation of microscopic images using level set methods" (MFF UK). The supervisor was RNDr. Václav Kučera, Ph.D., MFF UK. The expert consultant of the thesis was Jindřich Soukup, Ph.D. student in the Dept. of Image Processing (ZOI).
Dr. Filip Šroubek, Res.Prof. received the scientific title "Research Professor in Physico-Mathematical Sciences" from the President of the Czech Academy of Sciences on October 14, 2015.
