Inaugural Professorial Lecture: René Vidal

The Whiting School of Engineering hosts the Inaugural Professorial Lecture of René Vidal from 4 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 2, in Gilman Hall, room 50.

Vidal, a professor of biomedical engineering and director of the Vision Dynamics and Learning Lab, will deliver a lecture titled "Teaching Machines to See." The world has seen an explosion of data in recent years, but automatic interpretation of this information is exceedingly difficult. Professor Vidal will describe his work developing mathematical methods that enable computers to see, analyze, and interpret images, videos, and biomedical data.
