EURASIP Journal on Image and Video Processing is calling for submissions to our Collection on Visual coding for humans and machines.

Coding for machines is an emerging area in multimedia, which is expected to gain significant attention in the coming years due to the increasing volume of machine-to-machine internet traffic. In this context, efficient visual compression solutions that target machine consumption is critical to enable current and future distributed AI applications. Visual coding for machines and humans has already sparked relevant standardization activities, including MPEG VCM for video and JPEG AI for images. Recent conferences have featured sessions or workshops on coding for machines, but, to our knowledge, this is the first special issue in a journal specifically focused on this topic.

This Collection supports and amplifies research related to SDG 9

About the collection

Prospective authors are encouraged to submit unpublished manuscripts for publication in this Special Issue. Subject of interests include, but are not limited to:

• Theories and frameworks for coding for machines
• Feature compression methods
• End-to-end approaches for coding for machines
• Compression for multiple machine tasks
• Compression for human-and-machine dual use
• Compressed-domain multimedia analysis (understanding, translation, classification, object detection, segmentation, pose estimation, etc.)
• Compressed-domain multimedia processing (denoising, super-resolution, enhancement, …)
• Datasets for coding for machines
• Error resilience in coding for machines
• Privacy and security in coding for machines
• Immersive video coding for machines/humans and machines
