Title: An overview of image and video processing research

Abstract: In this talk, I will provide an overview of several recent projects in my research group, including witness video summarization for citizen journalism, 360 degree video streaming, video call and conferencing, object detection and tracking using deep learning, and neural activity prediction using deep learning. I will also provide an overview of NYU Tandon School of Engineering and the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
