VIPP symposium 2010: Seeing Red, first day 12.1.2010

Speakers’ presentation notes and related discussion forums can be found at:

09.15-10.00 Opening: Antti Raike

10.00-10.30 Raija Talvio: Film production workflow and post production

How to keep the story alive through pre production, production and post production – and is this possible? The different forms the story takes before it reaches the screen.

10.30-11.00 Discussion: How to visualise film production

11.00-11.30 Anna Heiskanen: Film production manual fort the students and staff

Post production workflow has gone through rapid change and keeps on changing. Presenting up-to-date material to the students is a challenge as seems to be understanding the process to the students. So this opportunity for understanding visualizing this maze of phases is very much appriciated.

11.30-12.00 Discussion: The use of film production manual

12.00-13.00 LUNCH

13.00-13.45 Simo Vanni: Visual cortex: one for all and all for one

A single neuron in the visual cortex is sensitive to stimulation not only locally, within classical reseptive field (CRF), but also to stimulation outside the CRF. This extra-CRF sensitivity modulates neural responses, and we have proposed a hypothesis that this modulation render neural responses to distinct visual objects more independent throughout the visual system. This hypothesis connects the well known psychological and physiological principles of contextual modulation to efficient coding of sensory information, and is in line with a view that the hierarchical system of visual cortices comprise a functionally homogenous, but multidimensional network of representations, reflecting learned regularities in the visual environment.

13.45-14.15 Discussion:

14.15-14.45 Samu Mielonen: Data visualisation & colour blindness

14.45-15.00 Discussion:

15.00-15.30 BREAK

15.30-16.00 Markus Koskela: Content-Based Video Analysis

Digital video has become commonplace both in professional use and in various consumer products, and the capturing, storing, and transmitting of digital video has steadily become easier and more cost-effective. However, the current methods for the analysis and semantic representation of the video content are considerably less mature. In this talk, I will introduce the research done at Aalto University ICS Department on content-based video analysis, and present some applications such as automatic video summarization and mobile augmented reality.

16.00-16.30 Discussion

16.30-17.00 Conclusion

    Where’s the video stream? Link plz.

  2. Diana Says:

    You can watch the video streams from here:

    Tuesday January 12th

    Thursday January 14th

  3. Juhani Kantola Says:

    Could you switch places between the main and sub-picture in the stream? Would work better that way, I think.

    I would like to get hold of Samu Mielonen’s presentation! Data visualisation & colour blindness. Could you please post the link? I could not find it in LeMill. Thanks!

  7. Simo Says:


    Thanks Antti for the interestring interdisciplinary seminar! I learned more about movies than ever before, and some new things from my own field, too. I think the seminar was well organized, although I had difficulties with technical details, including the third party site for distributing the presentation. Because neuroscience seems relevant for the theoretical background of art, I hope we will be meeting again in the future.

    best regards,
