Data Compression


In this seminar we cover topics relevant to the current Bachelor, Master, and PhD projects in the Multimedia Signal Processing Group.

  • Image and video quality assessment: Nowadays, multimedia data are ubiquitous. You take pictures and videos with your camera and camcorders everyday. Have you thought about how you can judge the perceptual quality of the pictures and videos you made and how good your camera/camcorder is? In this seminar, we will discuss algorithms for image and video quality assessment, especially for the purpose of assessing performance of digital cameras and camcorders. The following aspects of perceptual quality are of interests: blur/sharpness, noise, color fidelity, resolution, geometric distortions, blockiness, ringing, frame dropping and freezing, and so on. Topics will be related to our ongoing VQA Project in the SFB TRR 161. The webpage for a previous seminar on this topic is here.
  • We also discuss crowd sourcing applications not only for multimedia quality assessment, but also for other purposes like social experiments and employing methods of psychometrics for the data analysis. 
  • Powerbike: Acqusition, analysis and visualization of performance parameters in endurance sports like road cycling are researched in the Powerbike project. We study relevant publications from this area of computer science in sport. Topics will be related to our ongoing DFG Project Powerbike.
