Machine Learning for Intelligent Image and Video Processing (ICCV 2015 Workshop)

Sebastian Nowozin - Wed 02 September 2015 -

Michael Hirsch and myself are organizing a workshop on the topic of machine learning for image and video processing as part of the ICCV 2015 programme.

The workshop takes place on the 17th December 2015 in Santiago, Chile, right after the main ICCV conference.

Call for Contributions

Image processing methods are highly relevant in a large variety of industrial and consumer applications. Traditionally some of the successful methods have been derived based on a careful consideration of the particular imaging modality and task, or on an adhoc basis by image processing practitioners. More recently statistical machine learning models have been proposed for tasks such as denoising, deblurring, inpainting, etc., often leading to significant gains in image quality. Machine learning methods require training data to learn about the image statistics and the task, and challenges arise in how this data should be collected and how ground truth is obtained.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from the image processing and machine learning community to discuss all issues related to machine learning models for image processing applications.

We invite submission of papers on relevant topics including, but not limited to the following areas:

  • Statistical modelling of image processing tasks
  • Runtime and data efficiency
  • Tractable estimation
  • Deep learning for image processing applications
  • Procedures to obtain ground truth data sets

In all aspects the ICCV community has been at the forefront of developing new ideas and we hope to continue this development through this workshop.
