Title: hAdvanced Neural Adaptive Processing in Interferometric and Polarimetric Radar Imagingh

The lecture was held in University Research Court, College Park, Maryland 20740, USA. About 40 audience gathered to discuss the adaptive processing merit and its origin of complex-valued and quaternion neural networks in Interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) and polarimetric SAR (PolSAR). The audience was mostly from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), a governmental institute investigating oceans and atmosphere. In the lecture this time, I focused on the use of quaternion neural networks (QNN) in adaptive land classification by considering the audience fields. The audience expressed strong interest in the origin of the merits of complex-valued neural networks in generalization ability suitable for wave information. Many of them are going to attend at IGARSS 2016 Beijing, and we will continue joyful discussion for tight cooperation in the future.
