Interactive Editing, Repair, and Selection for Images and Video

In collaboration with Adobe Systems and as parts of various other projects have studied algorithms for efficient interaction with images and video. These include methods for selecting objects, editing the images, and repairing defects.


This work has been funded in part Adobe Systems.
