About the Author

Liming Zhang is a Professor of Electronics at Fudan University, where she leads the Image and Intelligence Laboratory. Since the 1980s she has been engaged in biological modeling and its application to engineering, such as artificial neural network models, visual models and brain-like robot models, and has published three books in Chinese on artificial neural networks, image coding and intelligent image processing, as well as over 120 pages in the area.  Since 2003 she has been studying problems in modeling visual attention and applying it in computer vision, robot vision, object tracking, remote sensing and image quality assessment. She has served as a Senior Visiting Scholar at the University of Notre Dame and Technical University of Munich.

Weisi Lin is an Associate Professor in the division of computer communications at Nanyang Technological University's School of Computer Engineering. He also serves as Lab Head, Visual Processing, and Acting Department Manager, Media Processing, in Institute for Infocomm Research. Lin has also participated in research at  Shantou University (China), Bath University (UK), National University of Singapore, Institute of Microelectronics (Singapore), Centre for Signal Processing (Singapore). His research interests include image processing, perceptual modeling, video compression, multimedia communication and computer vision. He holds 10 patents, has written 4 book chapters, and has published over 130 refereed papers in international journals and conferences. He is a Chartered Engineer, and a Fellow of IET.  Lin graduated from Zhongshan University, China with B.Sc in Electronics and M.Sc in Digital Signal Processing, and from King's College, London University, UK with Ph.D in Computer Vision.
