Discover the possibilities of solving real-world problems when artificial intelligence (AI) and image processing come together.


In recent years, image processing and AI have been actively applied to solve complicated real-world problems, e.g., traffic surveillance, development of a self-driving autonomous car, cancer detection, depression prediction to name a few.

Digital image processing is the use of a digital computer to process digital images through an algorithm, whereas artificial intelligence (AI) is intelligence that perceives, synthesizes, and infers information, which is demonstrated by machines.

In this talk, we will explore basic image processing steps as well as AI algorithms. Furthermore, we will investigate the feature extraction process from images in detail. Finally, we will end with a hands-on demonstration of hand sign language recognition using image processing and machine learning algorithms. Note that sign languages are languages that use the visual-manual modality to convey meaning, instead of spoken words.

This event will be held in-person and online via zoom.
