Abstract: There are many questions to answer in image interpretation and understanding. Uncertainty in image analysis needs strong and powerful modelling tools to describe the objects in the images. Artificial intelligence (AI) plays a very important role in the design of a robust tool for image representation. Using some examples from his own work on uncertainty analysis, Prof. Zhou will explore how AI can stimulate new concepts or development of dealing with complicated problems and lead us to novel adventures through these applications.
