The Weizmann Institute of Science Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science Vision and Robotics Seminar Haim Permuter Ben-Gurion University will speak on ``Shape From Texture": Estimating the Orientation of Planar Surfaces -- Algorithms and Bounds Abstract: The perspective projection has a dominant and fundamental role in any imaging process, whether by the human visual system, or by some type of a camera. Hence, perspective is one of the prominent clues in image interpretation and understanding. This makes perspective estimation a key problem in many image modeling and analysis applications. In this presentation we address a special case of this general problem: We consider the problem of estimating the orientation in space of a planar textured surface, from a single, noisy, observed image of it. * Joint work with Prof. Joseph Francos from Elctrical Engineering department, Ben-Gurion University. The lecture will take place in the Lecture Hall, Room 1, Ziskind Building on Thursday, December 19, 2002 at 11:00
