Dear Humboldtians!

On behalf of the Regional Group Munich of the Deutsche Gesellschaft der Humboldtianer we cordially invite you to the Humboldt Salon, January 16, 2018, which takes place in the Internationales Begegnungszentrum München (IBZ), as usual.

During the Salon a lecture will be given by Dr. Rania Hassen (Assiut University, Department of Computer Science; currently at Chair of Media Technology, Technische Universität München) on

Objective Image Quality Assessment: What, Why, and How?

Recent years have witnessed a tremendous growth in the use of digital images as a mean for representing and communicating information. There is also a vast proliferation of video traffic over both wireline and wireless networks and is expected to be more than double every year. Images and videos are subject to different distortion types during acquisition, compression, transmission, and display. A considerable percentage of the work in literature is devoted to methods for improving or maintaining the appearance of processed digital images/videos. With the extreme growth of multimedia consumption, limited network bandwidths, diverse content, and resolution there is considerable concern regarding accurately monitoring the perceptual quality of this vast data. In this talk, Rania Hassen is attempting to give the audience an overview on What challenges does this research line entail? Why it is important? and How researches pragmatically approached them? In doing so, she takes a certain viewpoint on how things ought to be done.

Rania Hassen received her Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo, Canada in 2013. She was an R&D Technical Team Lead at IBM-Merge a leading provider of medical image processing and clinical systems in 2012-2015. She has been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science, Assiut University, Egypt since 2014. She is currently a Postdoctoral at the Chair of Media Technology at Technical University in Munich (TUM). Her research interests include image/video processing, image quality assessment, and quality assessment for haptic communication. Mrs. Hassen received the Georg Forster Postdoctoral Fellowship from Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in 2017. She also was awarded the Ontario Graduate Student Science and Technology (OGSST) scholarship and Doctoral Award for Women In Engineering (WIE) during her postgraduate study at the University of Waterloo.
