Distinguished Lecture Series 2016/17 – Prof. Yasushi Yagi

Prof. Yasushi Yagi from The Osaka University, Japan visited the Department and delivered a Distinguished Lecture on “Special Sensing System for Computer Vision” on 4 May 2017. In the lecture, Prof. Yasushi Yagi described the creation of novel sensing system and introduced serval special sensing systems for computer vision. The lecture was full of constructive interaction and well received.

Yasushi Yagi is the Executive Vice President of Osaka University in 2015. He received his Ph.D. degree from Osaka University in 1991. In 1985, he joined the Product Development Laboratory, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, where he worked on robotics and inspections. He became a research associate at Osaka University in 1990, a lecturer in 1993, an associate professor in 1996, and a professor in 2003. He was the director of the Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research at Osaka University from 2012 to 2015.

The studies in his laboratory focus on computer vision and media processing including basic technologies such as sensor design, and applications such as an intelligent system with visual processing functions. Some of our major research projects are: the development of a novel vision sensors such as an omnidirectional catadioptric system; biomedical image processing such as endoscope and microscope images; person authentication, intention, and emotion estimation from human gait, and its applications to forensic and medical fields; photometry analysis and its application to computer graphics; an anticrime system using a wearable camera; and 3D shape and human measurement using infrared light.

He is a member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Computer Vision, the Editor-in-Chief of IPSJ Transactions on Computer Vision & Applications and the Vice-President of the Asian Federation of Computer Vision Societies. He is a fellow of IPSJ and a member of IEICE, RSJ, and IEEE.
