During December 2017, I have visited Prof. Dietmar Saupe’s group at the University of Konstanz, Germany. In my first week I had the chance to give a talk about Image quality assessment based on visual perception as part of the Lecture Series “Visual Computing” of the SFB-TRR 161. During the month I was mainly working on the image quality assessment of differently distorted images.
Organized by the RWTH Aachen University, together with the researchers from RWTH Aachen University, Leibniz University of Hannover, University of Bristol, etc., the 3dt Summer School on Video Compression and Processing (SVCP) was held at Abdij Rolduc (Kerkrade, Netherlands) from 3th to 5th July. In this three days’ summer school, people in the area of video coding and processing exchanged knowledge and ideas.
During this spring, I spent two months at the Multimedia Signal Processing Group led by Prof. Dr. Dietmar Saupe at the University of Konstanz. During this stay I had the opportunity to meet many researchers who work in blind image and video quality assessment and pursue my research work.
Franz Hahn is a PhD student in the Multimedia Signal Processing Group of Prof. Dietmar Saupe at the University of Konstanz. During his project activities in the SFB-TRR 161 he is concerned with the topic of image and video quality assessment. Using Eye Tracking he aims to develop a predictive model that improves the quality of images by keeping the data size the same.
