Peeters Ralf
Lieu d'exercice : Department of Data Science and Knowledge Engineering, Maastricht University, The Netherlands
Date et lieu : Thursday 15 June 2017 16:00 , Salle de réunion du laboratoire I3S à Sophia Antipolis
Résumé/Abstract:

We present a framework to design an orthogonal wavelet with compact support and vanishing moments, tuned to a given application in a data-driven way.
This is achieved by optimizing a criterion, such that a prototype signal, which is characteristic for the application, becomes sparse in the wavelet domain.
This approach is beneficial for compression and detection purposes.
Starting from a filter bank approach with lossless polyphase matrices, a parameterization is developed for which orthogonality and compact support are built in, and in terms of which we can express the vanishing moment conditions conveniently. For low order filters the vanishing moment conditions can be built in as well, for high order filters one should resort to constrained optimization. The approach is developed for critically sampled wavelet transforms as well as for the stationary wavelet transform. A few examples illustrate the wavelets generated by these methods.

Nous avons effectué une phase de preprocessing des données. Les images industrielles dont nous disposons étant issues de mesures par microscopie à force atomique, nous devons corriger des dérives de l'appareil de mesure.

Nous cherchons ensuite à estimer des caractéristiques de nos nanos objets en combinant ces mesure AFM avec une autre technique d’imagerie (MEB). J’expliquerai notre premiers résultats qui sont basés sur des techniques d'agrégation d'estimateurs

Résumé/Abstract:
Pour étudier les régions sismiquement actives, nous déployons des sismomètres à terre mais également sur le fond des océans. Les données que nous obtenons sont devenues de plus en plus nombreuses par une augmentation à la fois du nombre d'instruments déployés lors d'une campagne et de sa durée qui peut aller aujourd’hui de 6 mois à 4 ans d'enregistrement en continu. La détection et l'extraction automatique des signaux sismologiques deviennent donc maintenant vitales pour notre communauté qui utilise encore des techniques de base peu performantes et qui ne permettent pas d'aborder tout le champ des signaux existants. Pour le moment, nous détectons en automatique seulement des séismes dont l'amplitude dépasse un seuil par rapport au bruit de fond. Des techniques ont récemment été développées, telles que celle en ondelettes pour discriminer des événements spécifiques lorsque l’espace de stockage ne permet pas de conserver tout l’enregistrement en continu, celle s’appuyant sur une fonction statistique de type kurtosis pour réaliser automatiquement la détermination des temps d’arrivées des ondes en chaque station. Mais d’autres signaux liés à l'activité terrestre, à celles des mammifères marins et aux événements météorologiques sont enregistrés et nous aimerions pouvoir les extraire de manière systématique au retour des instruments pour alimenter des bases de données qui seraient ouvertes à la communauté scientifique.

Nous souhaiterions développer un projet entre Géoazur et I3S pour créer un programme qui permettra de détecter, extraire et ranger dans une librairie tous ces signaux. Au cours de ce séminaire, je vous présenterai les différents types de signaux que nous utilisons et ce que nous en faisons, les autres signaux qui sont enregistrés par les stations en mer, pour ensuite développer ce que nous souhaiterions faire grâce à vos compétences.

Résumé/Abstract:

En classification traditionnelle, chaque échantillon à classer se voit attribuer une classe unique, contexte dit mono-label. La classification multi-labels représente une extension où un échantillon à classer peut être associé à plusieurs classes simultanément.

Dans le domaine médical, l'application de la classification multi-labels s'avère particulièrement adaptée puisque les patients peuvent être atteints de plusieurs pathologies simultanément. Or, l'utilisation d'une méthode mono-label par pathologie ne permet pas de prendre en compte les corrélations potentielles entre pathologies. Nous verrons les deux grandes familles de méthodes multi-labels (les méthodes d'adaptation et par transformation) ainsi qu'une application aux données MAPA (Mesure Ambulatoire de la Pression Artérielle).

Title: Introduction to multi-label classification: application to medical data

Abstract:
In traditional classification, each sample to be classified is assigned a single class, also called mono-label classification. The multi-label classification represents an extension where a sample can be associated with several classes simultaneously.

In the medical field, the application of multi-label classification is particularly adapted since patients may be suffering from several pathologies simultaneously. Indeed, the use of one mono-label method per pathology does not allow to take into account the potential correlations between pathologies. We will see the two main families of multi-label methods (adaptation and transformation methods) as well as an application to ABPM data (Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring).

Résumé/Abstract:

Many problems in signal and image processing can be formulated as the minimization of a cost functional with additional constraints related to prior knowledge. The most simple such functional being ||Ax-d|| (where d is some measurement) possibly subject to a linear constraint on x, which has an exact solution provided by the least squares method. In other applications a sparsity constraint on x is more relevant, leading to a non-convex functional f(x)=||Ax-d||+"the amount of nonzero elements in x". The corresponding l0-l2 minimization problem is hard, non-convex and usually has a multitude of local minima. Another problem in the same category is that of finding a low rank matrix satisfying certain additional restrictions. 

 

In my talk I will present an overview of such problems, provide theory for the convex envelope of the functional f and show how the convex envelope can be used to find approximate solutions to the problem, as well as examples of how the convex envelope can help us understand the performance (and prove convergence) of algorithms designed for convex functionals, applied to non-convex ones.

Résumé/Abstract:

La  reconstruction  géométrique  d'une  scène  basée  sur  des  données  3D  est  importante  car  elle  possède  de  nombreuses applications. Dans un premier temps, il faut détecter l’ensemble des formes primitives (par exemple cylindres, sphères, cônes,  etc.)  qui  composent  la  scène  3D  avant  d’ensuite  tenter  d’établir  des  relations  entre  elles.  Les  formes  primitives détectées automatiquement par les méthodes existantes sont souvent assez limitées.

Je présente une méthode tirant profit de la symétrie des surfaces de révolution, afin de reconstruire la géométrie  de  la  surface  de  révolution  de  manière  précise  et  efficace.  J'illustre  la  pertinence  de  la  méthode  en reconstruisant des surfaces de révolution en temps réel dans un environnement issu d’un SLAM dense.

Résumé/Abstract:

La  Réalité  Augmentée  vise  à  afficher  des  informations  numériques  virtuelles  sur  des  images  réelles.  Le  recalage  est important, puisqu’il permet d'aligner correctement les objets virtuels dans le monde réel. Contrairement au tracking qui recale  en  utilisant  les  informations  de  l’image  précédente,  la  localisation  à  grande  échelle  (wide  baseline  localization)
calcule la solution en utilisant uniquement les informations présentes dans l’image courante. Il permet ainsi de trouver des solutions initiales au problème de recalage (initialisation) et, n’est pas sujet aux problèmes de « perte de tracking ». Le problème  du  recalage  en  RA  est  relativement  bien  étudié  dans  la  littérature,  mais  les  méthodes  existantes  fonctionnent principalement  lorsque  la  scène  augmentée  présente  des  textures.  Pourtant,  pour  le  recalage  avec  les  objets  peu  ou  pas texturés, il est possible d’utiliser leurs informations géométriques qui représentent des caractéristiques plus intrinsèques que les textures. Ce séminaire s’attache au problème de recalage basé sur des informations géométriques, et plus précisément sur les  points.  Je  présente  LGC,  une  nouvelle  méthode  de  recalage  de  points  robustes  et  rapides.  Il  peut  mettre  en correspondance des ensembles de motifs de points 2D ou 3D subissant une transformation dont le type est connu. LGC présente un comportement linéaire en fonction du nombre de points, ce qui permet un tracking en teps-réel. Je montrerai un démo d'augmentation de croquis d'ingénieries.

Résumé/Abstract:

Because of atmospheric turbulence, images of objects in outer space acquired via ground-based telescopes are usually blurry. One way to estimate the blurring kernel or point spread function (PSF) is to make use of the aberration of wavefront received at the telescope, i.e., the phase. However only the low-resolution wavefront gradients can be collected by wavefront sensors. In this talk, I will discuss how to use regularization methods to reconstruct high-resolution phase gradients and then use them to recover the phase and the PSF in high accuracy.

Résumé/Abstract:

Abstract : Proton therapy kills cancer cells by delivering proton beams to the tumour. Opposite to conventional radiation therapy, proton beams deposit their maximum energy within a precisely defined range, known as the Bragg peak. This is due to the stopping power of the atoms in the body of the patient. To proceed the treatment, a plan is draw on a 3D image (a CT scan) of the patient. The Gross Tumour Volum is segmented and the Organs At Risk (OAR) are also identified to be protected during the treatment.  The plan allows to maximize the dosis on the tumour and minimize the dosis on the OAR. The patient is treated in the room on the basis of the 3D scan taken before the treatment.
Our research has led to the development of an imaging system (a cone beam CT) which is in the treatment room and which allows to adapt the treatment by using different image processing tools, among which deformable coregistration and  contours tracking are essential. This allow to implement adaptive protontherapy, including on mobile tumours (e.g. lung tumours) and reduce the range uncertainties.

Résumé/Abstract:

Abstract: Principal component analysis (PCA) based on L1-norm maximization is an emerging technique that has drawn growing interest in the signal processing and machine learning research communities, especially due to its robustness to outliers. In this talk we will explore some links between L1-norm PCA and ICA. Specifically, we will show that L1-norm PCA can perform independent component analysis (ICA) under the whitening assumption. However, when the source probability distributions fulfil certain conditions, the L1-norm criterion needs to be minimized rather than maximized, which can be accomplished by simple modifications on existing optimal algorithms for L1- PCA with global convergence. If the sources have symmetric distributions, we show in addition that L1-PCA is linked to kurtosis optimization. A number of numerical experiments illustrate the theoretical results and analyze the comparative performance of different algorithms for ICA via L1-PCA.

Résumé/Abstract:

Several respiratory, cardiovascular and metabolic disorders are diagnosed and monitored by respiratory measurements such as respiratory rate, tidal volume and breathing pattern. The methods to retrieve these parameters usually require some obtrusion of the air breathed by the patients with is uncomfortable and limited to hospital environments. New respiratory measurement techniques are being developed to overcome these limitations, and one emerging approach involves the use of accelerometers to analyze the thoracic cage movement and estimate the respiratory parameters. We discuss these strategies and also introduce a new system for measure multiple accelerometer signal simultaneously and, using blind source separation, estimate these respiratory parameters.

Résumé/Abstract:
Titre : Permettre aux utilisateurs de choisir interactivement son point de vue : un challenge en compression / Enabling user to interactively select viewpoint : a challenge for 3D data compression 

Abstract : Enabling users to interactively navigate through different viewpoints of a static scene is a new interesting functionality in 3D streaming systems. While it opens exciting perspectives toward rich multimedia applications, it requires the design of novel representations and coding techniques to solve the new challenges imposed by the interactive navigation. In particular, the encoder must prepare a priori a compressed media stream that is flexible enough to enable the free selection of multiview navigation paths by different streaming media clients. Interactivity clearly brings new design constraints: the encoder is unaware of the exact decoding process, while the decoder has to reconstruct information from incomplete subsets of data since the server generally cannot transmit images for all possible viewpoints due to resource constrains. In the presentation, we present what methods already exist and we propose some new solutions in the context of multi-view representations. We also present how these intuitions could be extended to the compression of 3D meshes for the context of user free navigation.

Résumé/Abstract:

Abstract: Quadrotor aerial vehicles are one of the most flexible and adaptable platforms for aerial robotics research. The impact of the quadrotor in the field of robotics research can be seen as similar to that of the Puma robotic arm in the early years of robotic manipulators, and the unicycle wheeled robot, in a similar period in mobile robotics. Existing research aerial robotics has brought the field to a point where the basics of control and estimation are reasonably well established for quadrotor vehicles although contributions to the basic control design are still being made. This talk provides a high level introduction to the key aspects of quadrotor control as practiced by the majority of laboratories around the world.

L’objectif de ces travaux est d’améliorer la qualité de la vision de nuit des pilotes à l’aide d’un système numérique doté d’un intensificateur de lumière (IL) couplé à une caméra CCD, dont les images sont projetées directement sur la visière du casque du pilote. Les études menées consistent dans un premier temps à améliorer la qualité des images IL en effectuant une étape de débruitage. Pour cela, nous réalisons d'abord une estimation non-paramétrique de la statistique du bruit présent dans les images, afin de pouvoir ensuite effectuer un débruitage adapté. Puis nous recalons ces images avec des images infra-rouge (IR) pour pouvoir procéder à de la fusion de capteurs. Ces travaux s’inscrivent dans un contexte opérationnel où l’on traite un flux vidéo avec une forte contrainte temps-réel.
 
Title : Numerical night vision system
Summary
The goal of this work is to enhance the quality of night vision for helicopter pilotes. This is achieved thanks to a numerical system composed of a light intensifier (IL) coupled to a CCD camera. The obtained images are directly projected onto the helmet visor. Current studies first consist in enhancing the quality of theses IL images by performing denoising. We first derive a non-parametric estimation of the noise model, in order to apply relevant denoising algorithms.
Then we register these IL images with infra-red (IR) images to proceed to image fusion. This work lies within an operational context where videos are processed with a strong real-time constraint.

Résumé/Abstract:

This talk will cover two applications related to digitization of the real world: one concerning cultural heritage and another on example-based texture synthesis.

I) Treatment of 3D models with acquired radiance.
Vision and computer graphics communities have built methods for digitizing, processing and rendering 3D objects. There is an increasing demand coming from cultural communities for these technologies, especially for archiving, remote studying and restoring cultural artefacts like statues, buildings or caves. Besides digitizing geometry, there can be a demand for recovering the photometry with more or less complexity: simple textures (2D), light fields (4D), SV-BRDF (6D), etc. This talk will cover several contributions that can be situated in the pipeline for constructing and treating surface light fields represented by hemispherical radiance functions attached to a surface. First, we will tackle robustness issues in the aspect reconstruction from photographic data resulting from real-world on-site acquisitions [VSLD13]. And secondly we will present a simplification technique for this data, which locally minimizes the loss of both geometric and photometric detail [VSKLD15].

II) Example-based real-time texturing.
Generating textures in real-time is a must in videogames or other real-time animated worlds. But to create textures quickly, they need to be generated at runtime from compact data stored on the GPU. In this talk we will explain why, and overview two contributions that improve over the state of the art in on-the-fly texture synthesis. The first [VSGLD13] is a new tiling algorithm that augments the amount of variety that can be generated with a single repetitive tile. This is achieved by stochastic exchanges of part of its content in a seamless way. Above that, a multi-scale transition mechanism is added to generate visual detail. The second [GSVDG14] will propose a new noise model for procedural texturing, which are textures stored as compact functions. This new function has been built so that it can be tuned to reproduce an input exemplar containing structured elements in a procedural way, which was unseen before.

Résumé : This study was motivated by the biomechanical analysis of human movement, which usually consists of extensive reports with several graphs that are difficult to be interpreted by physicians or athletic trainers. Additionally, in many times, signal analysis is reduced to few parameters extracted from specific points of these signals, whose do not reflect or take into account the complexity of the involved physiologic phenomenon. The principal component analysis (PCA) has enabled the quantitative evaluation of signals by reducing large volumes of data to a small set of parameters, which take into account all the variance presented by the original data. Such parameters have been very useful for the quantitative evaluation of abnormalities, particularly allowing the objective comparison of clinical interventions or physical training strategies. More recently, the analysis of the loading factors of the eigenvectors obtained by PCA are representing an objective method to determine in which points of the signal a given subject shows abnormal differences, when compared to a control group. This brief presentation will include some examples of PCA application: (1) The gait analysis of subjects with Parkinson's syndrome for the objective comparison between treatments with drugs (usually levodopa) and deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus; (2) Assessment of physiotherapy effects in subjects after unilateral fracture of the lower limb; (3) Development of scores for normal gait and their application in functional evaluation of patients after reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament; and (4) It is finalized with an applications in ECG analysis.

Résumé/Abstract:

Making a judgment about the semantic category of a visual scene, such as whether it contains an animal, is typically assumed to involve high-level associative brain areas. Previous explanations require progressively analyzing the scene hierarchically at increasing levels of abstraction, from edge extraction to mid-level object recognition and then object categorization. Here we show that the statistics of edge co-occurrences alone are sufficient to perform a rough yet robust (translation, scale, and rotation invariant) scene categorization. We first extracted the edges from images using a scale-space analysis coupled with a sparse coding algorithm. We then computed the "association field" for different categories (natural, man-made, or containing an animal) by computing the statistics of edge co-occurrences. These differed strongly, with animal images having more curved configurations. We show that this geometry alone is sufficient for categorization, and that the pattern of errors made by humans is consistent with this procedure. Because these statistics could be measured as early as the primary visual cortex, the results challenge widely held assumptions about the flow of computations in the visual system. The results also suggest new algorithms for image classification and signal processing that exploit correlations between low-level structure and the underlying semantic category.

Résumé/Abstract:

Canonical Polyadic Decomposition (CPD), also known as PARAFAC, is a useful tool for tensor factorization. It has found application in several domains including signal processing and data mining. With the deluge of data faced in our societies, large-scale matrix and tensor factorizations become a crucial  issue. Few works have been devoted to large-scale tensor factorizations. In this paper, we introduce a fully distributed method to compute the CPD of a large-scale data tensor across a network of machines with limited computation resources. The proposed approach is based on collaboration between the machines in the network across the three modes of the data tensor. Such a multi-modal collaboration allows an essentially unique reconstruction of the factor matrices in an efficient way. We provide an analysis of the computation and communication cost of the proposed scheme and address the problem of minimizing communication costs while maximizing the use of available computation resources.
