Prof to Deliver Keynote Speech on Image Processing
Aug. 6, 2008
Dr. Nasser Kehtarnavaz, a UT Dallas professor of electrical engineering, will deliver the keynote speech at the 10th International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED) Conference on Signal and Image Processing.
The topic of Kehtarnavaz’s speech will be “Real-Time Image Processing: From Research to Reality.” The conference is in Hawaii on Aug. 18.
The speech will examine why out of a considerable number of image processing algorithms that are developed in research environments, only very few get actually used in hardware or software products.
Kehtarnavaz, who teaches in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science, will provide an overview of the guidelines and strategies for transitioning an image or video processing algorithm from a research environment into a real-time constrained product.
Kehtarnavaz is a leading authority on real-time image processing. He is currently managing a Texas Instruments sponsored research program at UTD involving the development and implementation of real-time image processing algorithms for digital and cell-phone cameras.
He is a Fellow of SPIE, chair of the Dallas Chapter of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, and co-editor in chief of Springer Journal of Real-Time Image Processing. He has authored or co-authored seven books and more than 170 journal and conference papers.
