Abstract:

This report announces the completion of an advanced laboratory for image and video processing that will allow UTSA faculty and students to do complex analysis of images and videos. Such image analysis is of critical interest to both U.S. military and civilian institutions as the Air Force, Army, Navy, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA. The laboratory is complete. It consist of a powerful 4 processor SGI machine and a number of workstations connected by a high speed interconnect system. The laboratory is being used for computer-intensive processing of immense volumes of image and video data, developing innovative algorithms, and evaluating sophisticated algorithms. It allows the UTSA team to develop processing architectures, and design parallel architectures, circuits, and devices. Further the lab allows us to conduct significant numerical studies that exploits innovative massively parallel image detection algorithms, wherein compute-intensive classificationrecognition techniques will be improved by concurrently processing multiple images thereby increasing the detection rates and reducing false alarms.
