Don't miss the final Fall 2021 Best Student Research Seminar featuring the IS&T 2021 Charles E. Ives Journal Award-winning paper for outstanding contribution in basic or applied science or engineering. This seminar is based on the Journal of Imaging Science and Technology research paper, "A Flying Grey Ball Multi-illuminant Image Dataset for Colour Research," authored by Hoda Ahaei and Brian Funt (Simon Fraser University, Canada).

For research in the field of illumination estimation and colour constancy, there is a need for ground truth measurement of the illumination colour at many locations within multi-illuminant scenes. This talk proposes a practical approach to obtaining such ground truth illumination data. The method involves using a drone to carry a grey ball of known percent surface spectral reflectance throughout a scene while photographing it frequently during the flight using a calibrated camera. In total, the dataset contains 30 scenes with 100 illumination measurements on average per scene, which is available for free download.

Hoda Aghaei is a machine learning engineer at Terramera Inc. The main focus of her work is computer vision and data analysis problems in agricultural applications. She received an MS in computer science from Simon Fraser University, where she worked under the supervision of Prof. Brian Funt.
