My name is Effrosyni Doutsi and I am a Visiting Professor at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the Technical University of Crete (TUC) and an Associate Researcher at the Signal Processing lab (SPL) of Institute of Computer Science (ICS) at Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH) and the I3S lab, CNRS, Université Côte d'Azur (UCA).

I received my PhD degree in Computer Science at the Université Côte d'Azur in 2017, my Master degree in Computational Biology and Biomedicine at the Université de Nice Sophia-Antipolis in 2013, and the Bachelor degree in Computer Science and Biomedical Informatics at the University of Thessaly in 2012. 

My research interests are on image and video processingsemantic compression, applied neuroscience and computational biology. My goal is to investigate, design and implement new architectures/systems capable of processing and compressing the visual information using neuroscience models and artificial intelligence. Mimicking the computational, functional and energy efficiency of the visual system is expected to highly improve the performance of the existing state-of-the-art compression standards.

I am currently the Principal Investigator of the Brain-like Energy Efficient Image Coding (BRIEFING) project (project's website hereworking with Dr. Marc ANTONINI and the MediaCoding Team at I3S/CNRS. The BRIEFING project is funded by the French Republic, the Campus France and the Université Côte d'Azur under the framework of the Make Our Planer Great Again (MOPGA) call. Last but not least, I have received a 3-years long research grant by the Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation (HFRI) for the BrainSIM project which is expected to begin soon. The BrainSIM research will be hosted by FORTH/ICS in collaboration to Prof. Panagiotis Tsakalides and the SPL group.

New and Forthcoming Events

"We are happy to announce that our special session on "Neuromorphic and perception-based image acquisition and analysis" has been accepted to the International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP) 2022 that will be held in Bordeaux, France.

We are looking forward to organising this event!!
