Seminar by Prof Il Song Han

Professor Il-Song Han from KAIST, Korea gave a talk titled: Bio-inspired visual information processing and its applications to DSM and ADAS to LUCAS researchers on 24th September.

The lecture discussed method of applying findings of Hubel and Wiesel experiment to computer vision. The method was based upon extracting geometrical features from the image, and then comparing them to known templates to decide the nature of the object. The applications include detection of cyclists, pedestrians and facial expressions. The first ones could be used to improve road safety, by informing the driver of impending danger. The last one could be used to determine mood of driver and prevent him from dangerous driving.

Professor Il-Song Han holds the position of invited professor at the Graduate School for Green Transportation at KAIST. He received his PhD from KAIST in 1984. His research interests include, but not limited to, VLSI design, neuromorphic device and vision system, Bio-inspired neural networks VLSI and Electric Vehicle.
