Generative Adversarial Networks in Multimedia Content Creation

Online Webinar - Thursday 8th of October, 10:00 - 11:00 am


Deep Convolutional Generative Adversarial Networks (DCGAN) have been used to generate highly compelling pictures or videos, such as manipulated facial animations, interior and outdoor images, videos. This lecture provides an extensive overview of several Generative Adversarial Networks applications for media production, notably for image content generation (e.g., human facial and body images), automatic image restyling/translation/captioning, text to image synthesis, video frame prediction, video content generation (e.g., human animations), automatic audio-visual content captioning. If this trend does indeed succeed, it will revolutionize arts and media production.

He served as a Visiting Professor at several Universities.

His current interests are in the areas of computer vision, machine learning, autonomous systems, intelligent digital media, image/video processing, human-centred interfaces, affective computing, 3D imaging and biomedical imaging. He has published over 1000 papers, contributed in 47 books in his areas of interest and edited or (co-)authored another 11 books. He has also been member of the program committee of many scientific conferences and workshops. In the past he served as Associate Editor or co-Editor of 9 international journals and General or Technical Chair of 4 international conferences. He participated in 70 R&D projects, primarily funded by the European Union and is/was principal investigator/researcher in 42 such projects. Prof. Pitas lead the big European H2020 R&D project MULTIDRONE: https://multidrone.eu/. He is AUTH principal investigator in H2020 R&D projects Aerial Core and AI4Media. He is chair of the Autonomous Systems Initiative https://ieeeasi.signalprocessingsociety.org/. He is head of the EC funded AI doctoral school of Horizon2020 EU funded R&D project AI4Media (1 of the 4 in Europe). He has 31600+ citations to his work and h-index 85+ (Google Scholar).
