RAS Prestigious Lecture | Transform Image Understanding with Artificial Intelligence by Professor Huiyu Zhou


There are many challenges in image interpretation and understanding, one of which is the uncertainty in image analysis. Strong and powerful modelling tools are needed to describe the objects in the images. Artificial intelligence (AI) plays a significantly important role in the design of a robust tool for image representation.

Using some examples from our work on uncertainty analysis, this lecture demonstrates how AI can stimulate new concepts or the development of dealing with complicated problems, thus leading us to novel adventures.
