TITLE: ProcessRDR and Beyond
PRESENTER: Avishkar Misra, CSE PhD Student
AFFILIATION: School of Computer Science & Engineering and National ICT Australia
DATE: Monday 25th October 2004
TIME: 11am - 12noon
PLACE: CSE K17 1st Floor Seminar Room
Computer vision systems have a strong dependence on the Domain Knowledge in order to work effectively. This idea has been widely accepted and spurred research in combing learning and knowledge engineering methods to vision systems. The majority of this effort has largely neglected to address the problems associated with learning Control Knowledge. Control knowledge pertains to learning "when and how" a particular image processing procedure is applied.
We have developed a framework called ProcessRDR, which we feel address some of these problems. ProcessRDR applies the concepts of Ripple Down Rules, to complex vision systems. The technique has been applied to solve a medical imaging problem of Lung Boundary extraction from High Resolution Computed Tomography (HRCT) of the lung. The results have been promising and opened new interesting directions.
This talk will provide an overview of ProcessRDR as well as the potential directions of this work. I will also discuss the challenges that need to be addressed and the existing strategies that may help.
