About George Stockman

LINDA G. SHAPIRO is Professor of Computer Science and Engineering and Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington. She earned a bachelor's degree in mathematics from the University of Illinois in 1970 and master's and Ph.D. degrees in computer science from the University of Iowa in 1972 and 1974, respectively. She taught at Kansas State University and at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and served as Director of Intelligent Systems at Machine Vision International before joining the University of Washington in 1986. Professor Shapiro is past editor-in-chief of the journal Image Understanding and is a member of the editorial boards of Computer Vision and Image Understanding and of Pattern Recognition. She has served on the program committees of many computer vision workshops and conference and is co-author of the text, Computer and Robot Vision with Robert M. Haralick. She was elected a Fellow of the IEEE in 1995, and a Fellow of the International Association for Pattern Recognition in 2000.GEORGE C. STOCKMAN received the B.S. degree in Mathematics-Education from East Stroudsburg State University in 1966, the MAT degree from Harvard in 1967, the M.S. degree in computer science from Penn State in 1971, and the Ph.D. degree in computer science from The University of Maryland in 1977. Currently he is a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at Michigan State University, where he joined the faculty in 1982. From 1974 to 1982, he worked as a Research Scientist for LNK Corporation on problems in image analysis and computer cartography. At MSU he teaches programming and data structures as well as computer vision and computer graphics. Professor Stockman has been active in many activities of the IEEE, including workshops on the teaching of computing with images.show more

Back cover copy

Scientists and science fiction writers have long been fascinated by the possibility of building intelligent machines and the capability of understanding the visual world is a prerequisite for such a machine. This book speaks to the notable research progress being conducted and brings together the important problem areas where computer vision is already providing solutions. Due to recent progress in the computer field, economical and flexible use of computer images is pervasive. Computing with images is no longer just for the realm of the sciences, but also for the arts and social sciences and even for hobbyists. This book should serve an established and growing audience including those interested in multimedia, art and design, geographic information systems, and image databases, in addition to the traditional areas of automation, image science, medical imaging, remote sensing, and computer cartography. Computer Vision presents the necessary theory and techniques for students and practitioners who will work in fields where significant information must be extracted automatically from images. It will be a useful resource automatically from images. It will be a useful resource book for professionals and a core text for both undergraduate and beginning graduate computer vision and imaging courses. Features Topics include image databases an virtual and augmented reality in addition to classical topics. Offers a complete view of two real-world systems that use computer vision. Contains applications from industry, medicine, land use, multimedia, and computer graphics. Includes over 250 exercises and programming projects, 48 separately defined algorithms, and 360 figures. The companion website features include image archive, sampleshow more
