Dr. Aleksandra Pižurica is Professor in statistical image modelling at Ghent University (Dipl. Ing 1994; Magister of Science 1997, PhD 2002). Her research is in the area of signal processing and machine learning, including multiresolution statistical image models, Markov Random Field models, sparse coding, representation learning, image and video reconstruction, restoration and analysis.

Prof. Pižurica serves currently as a Senior Area Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing and an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology. She was also an Associated Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing (2012-2016) and the lead guest editor for the EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing for the Special Issue "Advanced Statistical Tools for Enhanced Quality Digital Imaging with Realistic Capture Models" (2013). The work of her team has been awarded twice the Best Paper Award of the IEEE GRSS (Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society) Data Fusion contest, in 2013 and 2014. She received the scientific prize "de Boelpaepe" for 2013-2014, awarded by the Royal Academy of Science, Letters and Fine Arts of Belgium.

2Multimodal Data Processing and Deep Learning in Digital Painting Analysis

Art investigation - an emerging and rapidly growing cross-disciplinary field of research - relies increasingly on signal processing and machine learning. Multimodal imaging is now routinely employed in order to support the technical study of art work, its conservation, or even presentation. Analysis of multimodal data uncovers often regions or patterns of interest that would otherwise remain unnoticed and enables this way new insights and even support for certain decisions that are made during the conservation-restoration treatments. In this talk, we discuss recent advances in digital signal processing and machine learning for supporting the study and restoration of paintings. The focus will be on sparse coding, representation learning and deep learning, spatial context modelling and Bayesian inference in tasks such as crack detection, paint loss detection and virtual inpainting. Concrete examples will be shown from the ongoing conservation-restoration treatment of the Ghent Altarpiece.

2Learning, Processing and Communication in Smart Energy Grids

The introduction of renewables and the goal of increasing efficiency and reliability is revolutionizing the energy grids. Energy grids must become intelligent and be able to manage energy flows and flexibly adapt to changes in production and demand. This paradigm has fostered the creation of new business models on top of technology advances. The physical infrastructure must embed sensing, communication and processing capabilities. This talk will provide an overview of relevant applications (from metering, to diagnostics, to energy management) and discuss the role of sensing, processing and inference. It will also cover relevant communication technologies to provide connectivity and in particular new applications of power line communication that enable grid diagnostics by processing high frequency signals. In this context, we will also elaborate on the concept of learning the system model and discuss how top-down phenomenological approaches followed by machine learning paradigms can be merged with bottom-up physical domain approaches. .
