SagivTech Ltd. is a limited liability company based in Isarael.

Established on January 2009 and operating as an ISV, the company's core competency is its strong domain expertise in image, video and signal processing, and machine learning algorithms development and implementation and GPU computing solutions.

It provides outsource services, consultancy, training and licensed software solutions in the fields of image processing and GPU computing. It also serves as Local ISV beneficiary of Nvidia, the largest company for GPU computing hardware.

The company is led by Dr. Chen Sagiv who brings to SagivTech over 15 years of experience in the image processing academy and industry in Israel and Europe. Chen Sagiv holds a PhD from Tel Aviv University in Applied Mathematics.

 

SagivTech coordinates the overall scientific activities of this project.

EPFL is one of two Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology. It is a world renowned school of engineering and was recently ranked 2nd in Europe in the Shanghai ranking.

 

The Signal Processing Laboratory is headed by Prof. Pierre Vandergheynst and is active in sparsity based algorithms for signal and image processing, as well as mathematical imaging techniques for Computer Vision in particular using networks of cameras.

The EPFL node has extensive experience in the implementation of efficient algorithms for image processing in camera networks. The team won the 2009 IEEE/ACM ICDSC Challenge for its work on tracking and fusion in networks of uncalibrated cameras.The group of Pierre Vandergheynst has successfully developed and implemented real-time algorithms for 3D matching and registration using novel key point descriptors called Fast Retina Keypoints (FREAKS). Moreover, the group has a long standing experience in efficient numerical methods of large scale inverse problems in imaging.

The team of the University of Bremen participating in this project is the image processing group from the Center for Industrial Mathematics (ZeTeM).

 

The ZeTeM is specialized on data/image analysis and industrial applications. Its objective is the solution of complex problems in natural sciences, engineering and industry using modern methods of applied mathematics. The particular expertise of ZeTeM includes sparse representations, numerical analysis and classification/ clustering e.g. for Life Sciences.

The Steinbeis Innovation  gGmbH is a non-profit organization which does research and development on the interface between academic institutions and industry. In April 2010,  Steinbeis Innovation Center SCiLS Research (SCiLS) was founded as subsidiary located in Bremen. SCiLS is focused on data analysis and signal processing, with a special focus on application in Life Sciences.

SCiLS is involved in several national and international projects dealing with signal processing and has experience in project management as the coordinator's back-office.

The European Research Services GmbH is a public-private-partnership, founded in 2007. ERS is a specialised consultant company. It supports researchers in planning and managing EC-funded projects. ERS provides general technical and administrative support, provides expert advice to set up an efficient communication and decision structure, and how to handle emerging management issues.

 

ERS uses self-designed tools to streamline documentation and reporting towards the needs of the European Commission.
