“Soft Computing Techniques for Retinal Image Analysis”
Soft Computing techniques are one of the widely used computing techniques in today’s scenario. However, the practical applications of these soft computing techniques are not fully explored. This is mainly due to the several unseen challenges in spite of the numerous advantages. This talk specifically addresses the various challenges associated with these approaches. The main objective of this talk is to initiate a spark among the listeners to develop a framework to overcome these drawbacks. The application part of these approaches is addressed in the context of retinal image analysis. Thus, this talk will be beneficial to algorithm developers as well as practitioners.
