Keynote Speakers

A Brief Story of Superpixels

Radhakrishna Achanta, Swiss Data Science Center

  Visual comparison with different algorithms © 2016 EPFL 

The number of pixels in images is steadily rising. While computing power and memory are getting cheaper, it is nevertheless difficult for algorithms to deal with memory and computational burdens posed by large images, image-stacks, and videos. To address the need to reduce the processing burden, superpixels were introduced and have since found their way into a large number of applications.

During his talk “A Brief Story of Superpixels”, Radhakrishna Achanta of the Swiss Data Science Center (SDSC), will present superpixel segmentation algorithms to address efficient computation, memory consumption, use in computer vision programs and more.

Radhakrishna received his PhD in Computer Science from EPFL Switzerland and currently serves as a Senior Data Scientist at SDSC. In addition, he’s founded several startups, is a co-inventor on four patents and has published numerous papers on his interests in Computer Vision, Image Processing, and Machine Learning.
