The good, the bad and the beautiful pixels

Lihi Zelnik-Manor (Electrical Engineering, Technion, Israel)

In recent years more and more cameras record the world using more and more pixels. Watching and processing all this data takes lots of time, which we don't want to spend. But do we really need all the pixels? In this talk I will show that in many cases we don't need all the pixels to convey the content of the recorded scene. More specifically, when multiple cameras view the same scene often a single “good” view suffices to visualize what's going on. Within a single view keeping only the “important” pixels suffices to convey the story the image/video tells. The goal of this talk is to discuss how one can find such “good” views and “important” pixels.
