From image to geometry processing: Basics, AI and modern approaches
How has image processing evolved during the latest decades? How has AI transformed image processing, computer vision and the way we think in developing algorithms in these domains? Do these methods and algorithms scale up to geometry processing that has to solve similar problems (like denoising, filtering, pattern recognition) in the three dimensional and often non-Euclidean space? Can we scale modern AI up to geometry processing where the domain is not Euclidean but curved. Basics and modern approaches will be discussed along with example research efforts and applications.
Short Bio: Konstantinos Moustakas received the Diploma degree and the PhD in electrical and computer engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in 2003 and 2007 respectively. During 2007-2011 he served as a post-doctoral research fellow in the Information Technologies Institute, Centre for Research and Technology Hellas. He is currently a Professor at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the University of Patras, Head of the Visualization and Virtual Reality Group, Director of the Wire Communications and Information Technology Laboratory and Director of the MSc Program on Biomedical Engineering of the University of Patras. He serves as an Academic Research Fellow for ISI/Athena research center. His main research interests include virtual, augmented and mixed reality, 3D geometry processing, haptics, virtual physiological human modeling, information visualization, physics-based simulations, computational geometry, computer vision. During the latest years, he has been the (co)author of more than 250 papers in refereed journals, edited books, and international conferences. His research work has received several awards. He serves as a regular reviewer for several technical journals and has participated in more than 23 research and development projects funded by the EC and the Greek Secretariat of Research and Technology, while he has served as the coordinator or scientific coordinator in 4 of them. He has also been a member of the organizing committee of several international conferences. He is a senior member of the IEEE, the IEEE Computer Society and member of Eurographics.
