Title: | Using Integer Programming to Convert Image Files |

Speaker: | Taylor Watkins Albion Mathematics Major Department of Mathematics and Computer Science Albion College |

Abstract: | My Colloquium talk involves using binary programming to convert image files to pixel art. I created a model for choosing what values should be used in creating a smaller image based on the larger image. In order to get data for the image I used a program called Gimp to save it in a format that I could use and create a binary value matrix to base my function on. I used the program MPL to minimize the function that I created. Unfortunately I needed to split the problem into 4 problems because when I made the model I needed more variables to convert the image than I had. I took the result matrices and combined them and used the resulting matrix in Mathematica to create an image. |
