The game of 20 questions with noisy answers. A delight of information theory, probability, control, and computer vision

vendredi 11 janvier 2013, 11h00 - 12h00

Salle de réunion, espace Turing


We will explore various instances of the game of 20 questions with special interest in the situations where the responses are noisy. We will discuss several adaptive as well as non adaptive policies in the context of the method of Dynamic Programming. Applications in fast face detection and micro-surgical tool tracking will be presented.
