There are growing needs to accelerate computer vision algorithms on embedded processors for wide-ranging equipment including mobile phones, network cameras, robots, and automotive safety systems. In Texas Instruments' Vision R&D group, they conduct various projects to understand how the vision requirements can be best addressed on Digital Signal Processors (DSP), where the compute bottlenecks are, and how they should evolve their hardware and software architectures to meet their customers' future needs. Towards this end, they build prototypes wherein they design and optimize embedded software for real-world application performance and robustness. In this talk, Dedeoglu will provide examples of vision problems that Texas Instruments' has recently tackled.
Goksel Dedeoglu is the manager of the Embedded Vision R&D team at Texas Instruments' Systems Lab. He and his team design and optimize embedded software for automotive safety, video security, and gesture recognition applications. Goksel holds a PhD in robotics from Carnegie Mellon University where he specialized in computer vision. He is also a graduate of the University of Southern California and Istanbul Technical University.
