Title of Talk: Quantum Inspired Automatic Image Clustering

Speaker's Profile

Abstract of the Talk

Cluster analysis is a popular technique whose aim is to segregate a set of data points into groups, called clusters where the number of clusters are predefined. Automatic determination of the optimum number of clusters from a dataset is a challenging proposition in the computer vision community. Different metaheuristics are widely used for solving complex optimization problems. In this lecture, the use of the Quantum Computing (QC) and metaheuristic techniques is explored to design Quantum Inspired Metaheuristics, which can be applied to compute optimum number of clusters in a dataset, to obviate human intervention.
