Ocular Imaging Research and the Singapore Perspective

Jiang (Jimmy) Liu, Institute for Infocomm Research, A*STAR, Singapore

Abstract. In this keynote, Jimmy will introduce his team's ocular imaging work in the past ten years. He will describe his work on the following areas: ocular disease screening algorithms, image guided ocular surgery, ocular biometrics, and ocular medical image informatics. He will also share his collaborations with Topcon corporation.

Biosketch. Jiang (Jimmy) Liu received his bachelor degree in computer engineering from University of Science and Technology China in 1988; he received his master and doctor degree in computer science in 1992 and 2004 from National University of Singapore. Jimmy is the founding head of the Ocular Imaging iMED Department in the Institute for Infocomm Research. The iMED team has a sta strength of 25 (18 full-time research scientists with Ph.D degree and 7 research engineers with master or bachelor degrees). In 2013, Jimmy established AVATA (I2R and National Health Group Advanced Vision and Technology Alliance) clinical research joint lab with Singapore National Health Group and ATLANTIA (Advanced Technological Laboratory for A*STAR and Topcon Innovative Alliance) industrial joint research lab with Topcon Corporation, Tokyo, Japan. He is also adjunct principal scientist in Singapore Eye Research Institute and was the Singapore Chapter Chair for IEEE EMBS (Engineering in Medicine & Biology Society) in 2014. Jimmy has more than 40 international patents on ocular image processing and has published more than 200 academic papers, including papers in JAMIA, CVPR and TMI. He has published continuously in MICCAI main proceedings since 2009 (3 MICCAI papers in 2014, 3 papers in 2013, 1 paper in 2012, 2 papers in 2011, 1 paper in 2010, and 1 paper in 2009). In this year's MICCAI 2015, he had 4 papers in the main proceedings on ocular image processing.
