Abstract: How can we co-design data capture and image reconstruction to optimally recover visual information in challenging imaging conditions such as low-light, multiple scattering, and non-line-of-sight? How can machine learning help us solve these complex problems that are fundamental to computational cameras, diffractive imaging, and autonomous navigation. Can we learn effective prior models from data to represent images while characterizing the imager simultaneously? How can we leverage multiple data streams that differ in spatial and/or temporal resolution, field-of-view, and dynamic range to boost the accuracy of the image recovery algorithms? This special session covered the latest breakthrough research that answer these questions in 2021. Selected works were at the interplay of signal processing and machine learning. The special session hence provided the EUSIPCO audience and signal processing community with a very timely update on how imaging benefits from recent advances in deep neural networks and generative models.
