Cameras record the world using more and more pixels. Watching and processing all this data takes lots of time, which we don’t always want to spend. But do we really need all the pixels? in many cases the answer is no. When multiple cameras view the same scene often a single good view suffices to visualize what’s going on. Within a single view keeping only the “important” pixels suffices to convey the story the image or video tells. Our team develops algorithms for finding the “important”, or salient, parts of visual data.
