AI Thrust Seminar| AI-powered Image Perception for Vision and Healthcare

Time: 7 March 2022, 3:00pm – 4:00pm
Meeting ID:933 5006 8003, Passcode:AIT123

As indicated in a famous adage “A picture is worth a thousand words”, images usually convey a lot of information. It is desirable to separate input images into multiple layers via image perception algorithms for people to understand them easily. In this talk, I will present our image perception works, which benefit outdoor vision systems, multimedia, and healthcare. First, I will present our innovative methods to address adverse weather image restoration for outdoor vision systems. Then, I will talk about our works on the multimedia era, which separates input photos into layers with textures, shadows, lanes, saliency, and so on. Lastly, I will also describe our AI-based healthcare algorithms.

EVENT FORMAT: Seminar, Lecture, Talk


PERFORMERS: The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (GZ)
Lei Zhu is currently working as an assistant professor at ROAS Thrust, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (GZ). Before that, he has worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and University of Cambridge. He received his PhD degree at Department of Computer Science and Engineering from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2017. His research interest is to develop AI-powered image perception theory and algorithms for outdoor vision systems, multimedia, and healthcare. In past a few years, his works have been published in top-tier conferences or journals, including CVPR/ICCV/ECCV, AAAI/IJCAI/ACMMM, IEEE TPAMI/TIP/TMM/TCSVT/TVCG, IEEE TMI/Medical Image Analysis/MICCAI, and so on. He has been invited as an area chair for ACM Multimedia 2021-2022.
