Ling Guan, Canada Research Chair in Multimedia and Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Bruce Elder, Professor in the School of Image Arts, have been awarded a grant from the joint Canada Council for the Arts and Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada New Media Initiative.

They were awarded $169,500 from NSERC and $60,000 from the Canada Council for the Arts for the three year project entitled "A Cagean approach to Image Processing for Film and Video: Applying Machine Learning to Measuring Image Similarity, to Constrain the Random Selection of Image Processing Methods". The project involves developing an expert system to be used by film- and video-makers that incorporate some of John Cage's ideals for composition that will have applications throughout the "image industry".
