The European Centre for Soft Computing collaborated with companies facing real world data analysis challenges.
The firms sponsoring the Master funded one scholarship and part of the operational costs of the academic program.
The proposed schemes are demonstrated with both gray scale and color digital images.
Numerical results are collected in terms of well-known image quality metrics including Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio (PSNR), Structure SIMilarity (SSIM), Multi-Scale Structure SIMilarity (MS-SSIM) and Feature SIMilarity (FSIM) indices to analyze and compare the proposed interpolation schemes with each other and existing ones.
The curriculum emphasized up to date scientific knowledge and the application of analytical problem-solving skills to several types of common business problems: forecasting, optimization, classification, data mining, etc.
It is quite common when working on real-world problems that the available information suffers from uncertainty, imprecision or incompleteness.
Professor Yaochu Jin is a Distinguished Chair, Professor in Computational Intelligence and Head of the Nature Inspired Computing and Engineering (NICE) Group, Department of Computer Science, University of Surrey, Guildford, Surrey, UK.
He was a "Finland Distinguished Professor" at University of Jyvaskyla, Finland, " University, China.
In order that economic factors did not prevent qualified and motivated candidates from joining the Master, the European Centre for Soft Computing developed a scholarships programme funded by important companies.
Scholarships were open to all applicants and were awarded on the basis of academic excellence.
