 Speaker bio:
Gerald Schaefer gained his PhD in Computer Vision from the University of East Anglia. He worked at the Colour & Imaging Institute, University of Derby (1997-1999), in the School of Information Systems, University of East Anglia (2000-2001), in the School of Computing and Informatics at Nottingham Trent University (2001-2006), and in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Aston University (2006-2009) before joining the Department of Computer Science at Loughborough University. His research interests are mainly in the areas of computer vision and pattern recognition. He has published extensively in these areas with a total publication count exceeding 450. He has been invited as keynote or tutorial speaker to numerous conferences, is the organiser of various international workshops and special sessions at conferences, and the editor of several books, conference proceedings and special journal issues.

Title: Fast online image retrieval
With billions of photos available online, efficient and effective search techniques to retrieve images are highly sought after. Since images are typically unannotated, content-based methods, which extract visual features from images, provide an interesting approach but can also be computationally expensive, especially for large image repositories. In addition, images are compressed and thus need to be decompressed prior to feature extraction. In my talk, I will show how image features can be efficiently extracted from compressed JPEG images including exploiting information that is derived from data in the header of JPEG files and how this can be employed for online image retrieval.
