Title:
Data-Centric Method for Object Observation through Scattering Media

 (Co)Authors:
Jun Tanida and Ryoichi Horisaki

Abstract:
A data-centric method is introduced for object observation through scattering media. A large number of data pairs are used to characterize the relation between the object and the observed signal based on machine learning. Using the method object information can be retrieved even from strongly-disturbed light signals. As potential applications, object recognition, imaging, and focusing through scattering media are demonstrated.
