IPCV'09 Invited Talk - Prof. Michael Bank

Last modified 2009-02-14 10:41

Perception Redundancy Theory and Technical Compression Systems
Professor Michael Bank
Inventor of a new mobile communication method called the Frequency Bank Signal (FBS)
Holon Institute of Technology, Israel

Location: TBA


    This talk describes a suggestion for an improved system of video and audio signal compression. While the human brain has the capability to automatically reduce signal redundancy, the compression ratio achieved by the brain still far exceeds the compression depth in modern technical, mechanical systems. Signal redundancy remains a problem: this paper explores several directions for improving technical compression systems without added noticeable distortion. These proposals are based on the study of redundancy in real life; in paintings, music, poetry and architecture. The influence of redundancy on perception is demonstrated with some examples of famous pictures and musical fragments.


    Professor Michael Bank received a B.A and an M.Sc. degree in communication engineering from the Leningrad Institute of Communications in 1960. In 1969 he received a Ph.D. degree in the field of FM signal detection and in 1990 a Doctor of Science degree (Russian equivalent of professor). Since 1992 he has worked as a consultant for the Israeli communicational company Bezeq, and also during that time and to the present has been a professor at the Holon Institute of Technology (HIT). He has authored four books and more than a hundred articles. Prof. Bank proposed a new mobile communication method called the Frequency Bank Signal (FBS). His research interests include mobile communication systems theory and video and audio compression methods.
