Dr. Tao and his collaborator Dr. Fang Huang from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China contributed a chapter on Large-Scale Remote Sensing Image Processing in the Encyclopedia of Image Processing published by the CRC Press in Nov 2018.
According to the publisher, “The Encyclopedia of Image Processing presents a vast collection of well-written articles covering image processing fundamentals (e.g. color theory, fuzzy sets, cryptography) and applications (e.g. geographic information systems, traffic analysis, forgery detection). Image processing advances have enabled many applications in healthcare, avionics, robotics, natural resource discovery, and defense, which makes this text a key asset for both academic and industrial libraries and applied scientists and engineers working in any field that utilizes image processing. Written by experts from both academia and industry, it is structured using the ACM Computing Classification System (CCS) first published in 1988, but most recently updated in 2012.”
The contribution by Dr. Tao and Dr. Fang Huang focuses on the new High Performance Computing technologies based on multiple cores, graphics processing units, Intel Many Integrated Cores, cloud computing, and big data computing platforms to process large-scale Remote Sensing images.
