Plenary Talk 6

Title: Challenges and Developments of Machine Vision for Practical Applications

Speaker: Professor Shengyong Chen

Abstract: This talk presents the recent developments and challenges of machine vision, including object localization, segmentation, recognition, reconstruction, representation, feature extraction, target tracking, pattern analysis, etc. The open questions in the presentation are summarized to include: Where is the object? Who is who? What is meaningful? What represents the object? What happen? All these have been studied for tens of years and all have significant progress, but they are still open to seek better solutions. Variety of examples and videos are shown in the talk.
