Anchorage Science Pub: Mars Rover image compression

PRESENTER: Brendan Babb, UAF’s Alaska Center for Energy and Power.


DESCRIPTION: Can we make image files smaller to store on our computer or send to our phones? If anyone can, it may well be Babb and his colleagues. Working for over nine years in his specialty field of evolutionary computation optimization using supercomputers and GPUs, and in collaboration with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Brendan and Frank Moore have filed a patent through UAA on improved image compression for Mars Rover images. Come learn about image compression and genetic algorithms. Interactive examples included.
