Call for Papers: Real-time 2D/3D Image Processing with Deep Learning [1171]

Brief description/scope

Recently, deep learning techniques are getting essential components for 2D/3D image processing related researches. A highly flexible deep learning has emerged as a disruptive technology to enhance the performance of existing machine learning techniques and to solve previously intractable problems. 2D/3D image process has been identified as one of the key research fields where deep learning can contribute significantly. Vehicles with sensors or medical data have latency constraints, the real-time processing of 2D and 3D images acquired from depth sensors or medical equipment is a key issue to be addressed in research and industrial fields. These aspects include algorithmic computational complexity, hardware implementation, and software optimization for the purpose of making 2D/3D image processing system to operate in real-time using deep learning for an application of interest.

Deep learning for 2D/3D image processing is a relatively new theme and real-time 2D/3D image processing based deep learning method can be efficiently performed by using convolutional neural networks. This special issue address the real-time aspects of 2D/3D image processing and aspects of deep learning solutions in various imaging systems and applications to support decision or to provide meaningful and critical information. Thus this special issue propose various deep learning models for a variety of applications, ranging from 2D to 3D image analysis.

Deep learning related technologies are at the core of the current fourth industrial revolution and these deep learning techniques have a big impact on the automatic understanding and analysis of images. The convergence of large-scale annotated image datasets and affordable GPU hardware has allowed the training of neural networks for image data analysis tasks which were previously addressed with hand-crafted features.
