Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Understanding the human body's functioning and, in particular, the work of brain neurons is an urgent problem. The development and analysis of mathematical models of some aspects of brain functioning are important in extending our knowledge. This Special Issue is dedicated to the mathematical modeling of human vision and its applications to problems of image processing, such as image segmentation, enhancement, and inpainting.  The scope of the Special Issue is to expose some modern mathematical models of the processes involved in the perception of visual information by the human brain and to discuss the brain-inspired methods in image processing, which are based on these models.

A three-dimensional (3D) video is a special video representation with an artificial stereoscopic vision effect that increases the depth perception of the viewers. The quality of a 3D video is generally measured based on the similarity to stereoscopic vision obtained with the human vision system (HVS). The reason for the usage of these high-cost and time-consuming subjective tests is due to the lack of an objective video Quality of Experience (QoE) evaluation method that models the HVS. In this paper, we propose a hybrid 3D-video QoE evaluation method based on spatial resolution associated with depth cues (i.e., motion information, blurriness, retinal-image size, and convergence). The proposed method successfully models the HVS by considering the 3D video parameters that directly affect depth perception, which is the most important element of stereoscopic vision. Experimental results show that the measurement of the 3D-video QoE by the proposed hybrid method outperforms the widely used existing methods. It is also found that the proposed method has a high correlation with the HVS. Consequently, the results suggest that the proposed hybrid method can be conveniently utilized for the 3D-video QoE evaluation, especially in real-time applications. Full article

Automated deep learning is promising in artificial intelligence (AI). However, a few applications of automated deep learning networks have been made in the clinical medical fields. Therefore, we studied the application of an open-source automated deep learning framework, Autokeras, for detecting smear blood images infected with malaria parasites. Autokeras is able to identify the optimal neural network to perform the classification task. Hence, the robustness of the adopted model is due to it not needing any prior knowledge from deep learning. In contrast, the traditional deep neural network methods still require more construction to identify the best convolutional neural network (CNN). The dataset used in this study consisted of 27,558 blood smear images. A comparative process proved the superiority of our proposed approach over other traditional neural networks. The evaluation results of our proposed model achieved high efficiency with impressive accuracy, reaching 95.6% when compared with previous competitive models. Full article
