ImCompress / Fall 2015 - Image and video Compression and Processing
- This course presents progressive coverage of Image and Video Compression and Processing.
ImSecu / Spring 2016 - Imaging for security applications watermarking & biometrics
- Watermarking : Watermarking allows owners or providers to hide an invisible and robust message inside a digital Multimedia document, mainly for security purposes such as owner or content authentication. There is a complex trade-off between the different parameters : capacity, visibility and robustness.
- Biometrics : The security fields uses three different types of authentication : something you know, something you have, ore something you are : a biometric. Common physical biometrics includes fingerprints, hand geometry ; and retina, iris or facial characteristics. Behavioural characters include signature, voice. Ultimately, the technologies could find their strongest role as intertwined and complementary pieces of a multifactor authentication system. In the future biometrics is seen playing a key role in enhancing security, residing in smart cards and supporting personalized Web e-commerce services. Personalization through person authentication is also very appealing in the consumer product area.
- This course will focus on enabling technologies for Biometrics, with a particular emphasis on person verification and authentication based on or widely using image/video processing.
