Lecture on high performance imaging fundamentals conducted
Dr. Dao Vu Truong Son, lecturer at the Ho Chi MinhInternational University, Vietnam National Univertsity, Vietnam, was the UP Visayas Miagao campus on November 25, 2016 for a lecture on “Machine Vision and Image Processing Fundamentals” held at the conference room of the Umali Hall, College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences (CFOS).
In a nutshell Dao’s lecture covered the evolution of the camera, its various parts and how they work. He focused particularly on the lens and how it has become more powerful through time in capturing both still and moving images. He also explained various camera technologies that have been developed and are still being developed to make image capture even more powerful. He discussed research studies he has undertaken that has to do with ultra-high speed image sensor. Because “seeing is believing,” he pointed out that high performance imaging is highly important. He further emphasized that cameras such as those using ultra violet rays are able to detect fake food products.
During the open forum, the questions that were raised were mostly on how such technologies can help in fish processing particularly in detecting spoilage. The faculty, research extension professional staff, graduate students and staff of the Institute of Fish Processing Technology, CFOS, comprised the audience.
The lecture was organized by IFPT and funded by the Academic Program Improvement of the UP system.
