From colons to conservation: applying image analysis to real-world problems

Tuesday 13 March: 8:00pm - 9:00pm

Mill Lane Lecture Rooms , 8 Mill Lane, CB2 1RW

Advances in sensors mean that never before have we had so much information about the world we live in. Making sense of that information remains a considerable challenge. Fortunately, a common set of image analysis techniques can be applied to spatial information collected by a diversity of sensors. In this talk, Dr Carola Bibiane Schönlieb, an image analysis expert, explains these fundamental approaches and a forest ecologist Professor David Coomes shows how they are being applied to tropical forest conservation.

Dr Carola Bibiane Schönlieb is a Reader in Applied and Computational Analysis, head of the Cambridge Image Analysis group at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge. Professor David Coomes leads a research group engaged in protecting the world’s dwindling biological diversity. Focussing on forest conservation and ecology, his research uses remote sensing technologies alongside traditional field approaches to monitor forest change
