Title: Smart and autonomous systems for underwater image processing and simultaneous compression and encryption schemes

Abstract: L@bISEN was created at the end of the 1990s as the research laboratory of ISEN Yncréa Ouest, a then young private non-profit engineering school based in Brest. From the very beginning, L@bISEN has been developed around the idea of industry-oriented research, reaching 34 members in 2015. As a result of the remarkable expansion of Yncréa Ouest in three other campuses, L@bISEN reorganized its research activities as a multi-site research unit with smart and autonomous systems as its common research project based on three major topics: sensors, data analysis and energy management. This environment was essential for carrying out multiple research activities leading up to academic publications, PhD theses, research partnerships, joint industrial laboratories, and patents. For the past ten years, the guiding thread of Prof. Ayman Alfalou’s research consists of combining the best of optical and numerical methods applied to image processing. Optical methods offer simple and implementable filtering possibilities, provide fast and highly parallelizable solutions, which allows efficient image preprocessing before the application of adaptable numerical methods. This combination ensures fast image processing while reducing numerical complexity, easing the implementation of real embedded systems. In this presentation, we will focus on two research activities illustrating the interest of building up interactions between sensors, data analysis and energy management:

  1. Optical underwater image processing for autonomous underwater vehicles (patent FR1763336);
  2. Privacy-preserving simultaneous compression and encryption schemes for security applications (patent FR3088752).

Biography: Ayman Alfalou is head of Research and Innovaation at Yncréa Ouest and head of the L@bISEN research laboratory (Brest, Caen, Nantes and Rennes). His main research interests are signal and image processing, telecommunications, optical systems, optical processing, opto-electronics, laser and polarization. He supervises PhD and master students in a wide variety of theoretical and experimental topics. To date, he has published over 216 refereed journal or conference articles. He has organized or co-organized many conferences, special sessions and was the chairman or a member of scientific committees of many international conferences. He is a senior member of OSA, IEEE and SPIE.
