Keynote: “Smart surveillance systems: trends and approaches”, Robert LaganiŹre  (9h0-10h00)

In the past decades, video surveillance systems have evolved from simple local digital video recorder to large scale cloud-based video monitoring solutions. The large amount of visual data captured by these visual systems calls for the design of more intelligent methods that can extract higher-level understanding of the observed scenes. If the pixel was the fundamental element that gave to computers the sense of sight, object detectors and classifiers are becoming the new fundamental bricks that will give computer the faculty to see and interpret the world. This talk discusses some of the challenges related to the development of the next generation of video surveillance systems.

Keynote: “Hierarchical Analysis of Multimodal Data”, Jocelyn Chanussot  (9h0-10h00)


There is a growing interest in the development of adapted processing tools for multimodal images (several images acquired over the same scene with different characteristics). Allowing a more complete description of the scene, multimodal images are of interest in various image-processing fields, but their optimal handling and exploitation raise several issues. In parallel, over the past decade, hierarchical representations have proven themselves extremely useful and powerful tools for data analysis in a variety of contexts. In this talk, we will investigate how hierarchical representations, a powerful tool for classical image analysis and processing, can be extended to multimodal images in order to better exploit the additional information brought by the multimodality and improve classical image processing techniques. The talk focuses on three different multimodalities frequently encountered in the remote sensing field. We first investigate the spectral-spatial information of hyperspectral images. Based on an adapted construction and processing of the hierarchical representation, we derive segmentation, which is optimal with respect to the spectral unmixing operation. We then focus on the temporal multimodality and sequences of hyperspectral images. Using the hierarchical representation of the frames in the sequence, we propose a new method to achieve object tracking and apply it to chemical gas plume tracking in thermal infrared hyperspectral video sequences. Finally, we study the sensorial multimodality, in which images are acquired with different sensors. Relying on the recently introduced concept of braids of partitions, we propose a novel methodology of image segmentation, based on an energetic minimization framework.

Keynote: “Deep Learning in Image Processing ”, Roland Memisevic (9h0-10h00)


Deep Learning is the latest surge of wide-spread scientific interest in neural networks. Unlike previous waves of interest, this one has produced several astonishing results in various application domains, thanks to the availability of massively parallel hardware and of large labelled datasets. In this talk, I will describe the role of deep learning in image and signal processing, and I will present recent applications in these domains. I will also discuss some of the main challenges ahead, such as the need for further scaling up computation and datasets, and I will present some of the ideas and approaches developed in our own lab to address these challenges.
