Wojciech Czaja
Professor, Department of Mathematics

In this talk we provide an overview of some of the recent efforts dedicated to utilizing the advances arising in the context of big data and machine learning, for the purposes of improving the analysis of hyperspectral imagery.

Hyperspectral sensors enable the detection, identification and analysis of remotely sensed materials, which has significant implications in areas ranging from agriculture to homeland security. Machine learning provides algorithms with predictive capabilities. This, combined with an immense growth of the volume of available hyperspectral data, raises interesting scientific possibilities.

We shall present some of these that deal with efficient data representation, material classification, and data fusion.
