AI in Electro-Optical/Infrared camera surveillance systems
Nowadays, Electro-Optical and Infrared (EO/IR) technology plays a critical role in many military, defense, security and industry applications; as it provides the day-night and long-range visualization capability, improves the user’s ability to automatically identify targets, performs threat assessment, raises situational awareness, as well as supports weapons engagement through automatic surveillance and fire control solutions through line-of-sight. In this talk, we will introduce several modern EO/IR camera systems that are currently being developed in Viettel R&D Institute. Furthermore, we will propose a number of artificial intelligence applications that equip our EO/IR camera surveillance systems with the ability to automatically perform detection, localization, recognition, identification and tracking of all ground/air/maritime target types in real time. Our solutions are based on some most advanced machine-learning and deep-learning models trained on large-scale data. Several techniques of online learning and multi-sensor fusion will also be proposed to provide our system with high-performance accuracies and low false alarm rates, even in bad-seeing conditions or complex backgrounds.
Dr. Dao Duc Minh – Viettel R&D (Vietnam)
Dr. Minh Dao received the B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from Hanoi University of Technology, Vietnam in 2007, the double Master degree in Information and Communication Technologies from Polytechnic University of Turin, Italy, and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany in 2009, and the Ph.D.in Electrical and Computer Engineering from The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore MD, USA, in 2015. From 2015 to 2017, he worked as a Research Scientist in the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) in Maryland, USA. In June of 2017, he joined Viettel R&D Institute, where he currently leads the Image Processing R&D team. His research interests are broadly in the areas of signal/image/video processing, statistical machine learning, computer vision and artificial intelligence.
