Please Respond To

Please respond to if you are planning to attend this meeting. Also, let me know if you will be joining us afterwards at Ruby Tuesdays for dinner so I can make reservations. Again, only the speaker’s dinner is paid for. The rest of us need to pay our own way.


In this talk we describe the need to reform the image formation strategies of present day digital imaging systems. The current digital image formation strategies, inherited from film photography, allow image distortions to corrupt the final image and to limit the utility of the image after capture.

Recent discoveries in biological image formation reveal mechanisms that predict and prevent image distortions. These mechanisms are expected to have a significant impact on digital image processing.

DVIP Multimedia, Inc. has begun to capture these mechanisms in a class of adaptive algorithms and, in this talk, the impact of these algorithms in the area of image restoration is demonstrated. We will conclude with a discussion of future directions.

Keywords: Image Formation, Biological Imaging Mechanisms
