Shai Avidan - COLLOQUIUM LECTURE
Matching pixels is used in various computer vision applications such as template matching, tracking and image editing. I will give an overview of my work in this field with an emphasize on two components. The first is how to represent the data, and the second is what similarity measure to use. I will demonstrate the results on several applications including object tracking and image editing.
