The model led to the establishment of several systems that take advantage of this effect, among them a laboratory system that groups particles from the room's light to increase the capture of particles and viruses. However, particles of tens nanometers in size are challenging to trap. In framework of the project the optical forces will be generated to trap and manipulate a particle without an actual contact! This will be performed in addition to activating the fluid vibrations and acoustic vibrations to full optomechanical manipulation. The subject is innovative and suitable for a master's or third degree.|

Project overview: To be useful in applications involving the control of physical hardware or interaction with humans, intelligent systems must be robust and responsive. Currently, this conflicts with being general-purpose since the response time of a traditional planner cannot be guaranteed. In this project, we enable robust time-aware planning, thus significantly broadening the range of applications that can be addressed by intelligent systems. The research is in collaboration with Department of Computer Sciences.

prostheses for blind people can be improved by analyzing and segmenting regions
and objects in a 3D scene. We use a novel camera array system that we recently
developed for 3D imaging, and Deep Learning methods for the scene analysis.
This project is supported by an ISF grant.||Prof.

recently developed a new approach for true emotion recognition (i.e., not
relying on facial expressions that may be faked), using multi-spectral imaging
and machine learning. This research aims to extend this approach and develop
applications such as lie detection. In this approach, we sense and analyze in
the video mild changes in facial blood flow due to emotional state. The
research is in cooperation with the Psychology Dept.||Prof.

The research aims to optimize the sensing process and develop an algorithm for reconstructing compressively sensed spectral images of the Moon. For this purpose, a deep learning methodology will be used, similar to the one we developed for satellite spectral imaging of the Earth.||Prof. Adrian Stern||Learned compressive spectral imaging for Beresheet2 mission||15.09.2022|

However, most of the DL algorithms have been found to be vulnerable to so-called adversarial attacks that hamper their utilization for applications that require high reliability. Recently we have introduced a new defense paradigm for defending DL algorithms from adversarial attacks. The new paradigm is based on encryption in the optical domain and exhibits advantages unmet by software defense algorithms. The research aims to explore this new defense paradigm further. ||Prof. Adrian Stern||Defending Deep Learning algorithms by Optical Image Encryption||15.9.2022|
