Abstract of the talk:

Artificial Intelligence offers various popular and efficient digital image processing tools to increase the robustness of vision-based applications. These applications depend upon the quality of the input image with fine textural details. The quality of an image can be described by the visible information such as illumination, color, gradients, etc. which gets affected due to various atmospheric conditions i.e., haze and non-uniform illumination. If haze particles are present, the transmission of the reflected light rays to the observer gets obstructed and Airlight increases. Thus, the resulting image appears hazy. On the other hand, the non-uniform illumination condition produces the dark appearance of the captured scene resulting in loss of visible features. Therefore, image enhancement is an essential and important pre-processing step to restore the textural information with fine image details which aims to increase the robustness of vision-based applications. This talk will discuss the artificial intelligent algorithms able to deal with outdoor weather conditions and illumination variations.
