Assoc. Prof. Siamak Khatibi, Blekinge Institute of Technology,Sweden

Siamak khatibi received the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, in 1993, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, in 1999. He is currently an associate professor in computer science at Blekinge Institute of technology, Karlskrona, Sweden. His research team is conducting leading-edge research in advanced computer vision with special focus on image sensor, 3D reconstruction and image/video-based scene understanding. His team has been developing novel reconstruction methods for a variety of data types from singular single image data to spatial-temporal big data resources. The research of the team has led to several innovations for industrial applications. Semantic content awareness of streaming data and implementing bio-inspired methodologies have been other research areas. These ideas have been implemented in many applications for detection, classification, analysis and defining new image/video quality metrics.
