The Image and Signal Processing (ISP) Group at the IPL is devoted to the development of vision algorithms and vision systems. Vision refers to the extraction of knowledge from the measurements drawn by imaging systems. These measurements depend on the properties the scenes and the physics of the imaging process. Our approach to vision and image processing combines the use of machine learning theory with the understanding of biological vision. Applications inlcude the development of image processing hardware as well as image processing and analysis tools. In particular, our expertise embraces multispectral and hyperspectral data processing, supervised and unsupervised data/image classification, intelligent data analysis, image restoration and coding, change detection, target detection and multitemporal image processing, as well as biophysical parameter estimation (retrieval) with advanced statistical techniques. The group is tightly involved in national and international projects (ESA, EUMETSAT), networks of excellence, editorial boards in relevant journals (IEEE Trans. Signal Proc. IEEE Trans. Im. Proc., IEEE Geosc. Rem. Sens. Letters), as well as in advisory committees for international organizations.
