The optical flow is a dense velocity field that transforms one image into the next image in a sequence. More specifically, we intend to find a velocity vector for each pixel, which indicates in which direction and how quickly it moves across the image. The concept of optical flow is closely related to the object motion of a visual scene and optical flow computation and therefore represents an important tool for motion analysis in videos. This talk introduces the fundamentals of optical flow theory and computation, and illustrates various applications.
Dr. Jiang studied Computer Science at Peking University and received his PhD and Venia Docendi (Habilitation) degree in Computer Science from the University of Bern, Switzerland. He was an associate professor at the Technical University of Berlin, Germany. Since 2002 he is a full professor of Computer Science at University of Münster, Germany. His research interests include medical image analysis, 3D image analysis, pattern recognition, and mobile multimedia. Currently, he is Editor-in-Chief of Int. Journal of Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence and also serves on the advisory board and editorial board of several other journals. He is Senior Member of IEEE and Fellow of IAPR.
