Keywords Intelligent Image Recognition Systems, Image Watermarking, Parallel Image Processing
Summary My research interests are digital image processing technologies in wide meaning, especially image recognition. I have developed various useful image recognition algorithms, for instance, a viewpoint-independent two-dimensional shape recognition method, and a flexible graph matching technique for recognizing cattle muzzle patterns with growing deformations. I am interested also in digital watermarking techniques, and I have developed a robust image watermarking method for the copyright protection of digital contents. Recently, I am engaged in developing a parallel image processing system using a small and battery-friendly (low power consumption) cluster PC.
