Lloyd George - the great outsider
David Lloyd George became the authentic radical of British politics in part because of intellectual conviction, but, more significantly, because his birth and upbringing had made him contemptuous of the establishment and its values. He did not so much break the rules of conventional society and politics as refuse to acknowledge their existence. He remained an "outsider" to the end. This event celebrates the publication of Lord Hattersley's new book David Lloyd George: The Great Outsider.

Combien d’objets dans une image ?

Dans cet exposé Jean-Jacques Lévy propose de décortiquer quelques algorithmes d'étiquetage des objets dans une image, c'est à dire de segmentation de cette image en régions homogènes, et de regarder en détail la complexité algorithmique d'un tel mécanisme. Cela permet de montrer dans un cas concret, quels formalismes permettent d'analyser les performances d'un algorithme et de vérifier sa validité.
