What is Digital Image Processing (DIP)
According to Wikipedia, digital image processing is the use of computer algorithms to perform image processing on digital images. It allows a much wider range of algorithms to be applied to the input image/video data. The digital representation of an image allows us to use computers to process images and derive objective information automatically. Cancer detection from magnetic resonance images (MRI), access control system using face detection, automatic teller machines using fingerprint authentication, finding surface defects from electron microscope images, reading the license plates automatically for traffic rule enforcement are only some of the numerous applications that this beautiful discipline has to offer.
Aim of the Winter DIP Workshop
This workshop is aimed at being a stepping stone into the field on image processing. Objective of this winter workshop is to introduce students to this field and potentially develop their interest towards DIP. Furthermore, it is also our aim to give the participants a hands on experience on various techniques on image processing. At the end of this workshop, the participants would appreciate the meaning of the statement “One picture is worth more than ten thousand words”.
