On June 8-12, 1998, UCLA Extension will present the short course, 
"Video/Image Compression, Wavelets, Neural Networks, Fuzzy Logic, 
and Chaos", on the UCLA campus in Los Angeles.

The instructors are Harold Szu, PhD, Lamson Professor of Computer 
Science, University of Southwestern Louisiana, Lafayette, and Past 
President of the International Neural Network Society (INNS); and 
Charles Hsu, PhD, Principal Engineer, Trident Systems.

While the disciplines of wavelets, neural networks, fuzzy logic, and 
chaos seem divergent, their underlying principles converge for the 
purpose of solving invariant pattern recognition problems. For
example, the complex neurodynamic patterns in human visual and hearing

systems can be related to video redundancy reduction which generates 
invariant features for detection, classification, and identification
purposes.

The course describes various applications in chaos, fuzzy logic, ANN, 
WT, and associated learning algorithms, illustrated in terms of 
spatio-temporal information processing such as signal/image de-noise; 
signal classification; control device/machine chaos; video-phone 
communication codec; chaotic biomedical and heart applications; 
intelligent biosensors such as pacemakers and hearing aids; bomb 
sniffers, and discrete wavelet transform subband coding for image and 
motion estimation for video compression. Participants see how the 
human visual system is organized similar to the WT of the 
Gabor/Morlet-like edge-map pyramid in terms of the Multiple Resolution

Analyses (MRA) mathematics which reduce the spatial and temporal 
redundancies for invariant pattern recognition.

UCLA Extension has presented this highly successful short course 
since 1993.

The course fee is $1495, which includes extensive course materials.
These materials are for participants only, and are not for sale.
