Alfred M. Bruckstein, BSc, MSc in EE from the Technion IIT, Haifa, Israel, and PhD in EE, from Stanford University, Stanford, California, USA, is a Technion Ollendorff Professor of Science, in the Computer Science Department there, and is a Visiting Professor at NTU, Singapore, in the SPMS. Professor Bruckstein has done research on Neural Coding Processes, Stochastic Point Processes, Estimation Theory, and Scattering Theory, Signal and Image Processing Topics, Computer Vision and Graphics, and Distributed Ant/Swarm Robotics. Over the years he held visiting positions at Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, NJ, USA,(1987-2001) and Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, (2002-223), and made short-time visits to many universities and research centers worldwide. At the Technion, he was the Dean of the Graduate School and Head of the Technion Excellence Program. Professor Bruckstein is a Fellow of SIAM and of IEEE for research on Signal and Image Processing and Representation, Image Analysis, and on Ant/Swarm Robotics, and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from Agora University, in Oradea, Romania, in 2018.
Contribution of Light-field Cameras to Visual Navigation
Prof. Dr. Christophe Cudel
Université de Haute-Alsace - Irimas institute - Mulhouse, France
After obtaining a Ph.D. in 1995, and having been a vision project manager in a French company, Christophe Cudel joined the University of Haute Alsace in France in 1997. He worked on the development of specific vision systems, such as 3D velocimetry or eye-tracking. Today, his work concerns the design and study of light field image acquisition systems for visual navigation and deflectometry. He is also studying the contribution of AI to the detection of anomalies for visual inspection. His work is often carried out in collaboration with industrial partners or research centers.
Stacked Image Sensors - Path Towards New Applications in the CIS World
Prof. Dr. Albert Theuwissen
Harvest imaging, Bree, Belgium
Albert Theuwissen received a degree in electrical engineering and his Ph.D. from the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium) in 1977 and 1983 respectively. In 1983, he joined Philips Research Labs (the Netherlands) and in 2002 he started working for DALSA. His whole career he was involved in the R&D of solid-state image sensors. He issued several patents and is the author or coauthor of 240+technical papers, including a textbook "Solid-State Imaging with Charge-Coupled Devices". He acted as general chairman of the International Image Sensor Workshop in ’97, ’03, ‘09, and in ’15, and as International Technical Program Chair of the ISSCC 2010. In 2001, he became a part-time professor at the Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. He left DALSA in 2007 and founded Harvest Imaging. Since then he is fully focusing on training, teaching, and consulting in the field of solid-state imaging technology. In 2011 he received the Electronic Imaging of the Year Award and in 2017 he was elected as the President of the International Image Sensor Society.
