A UCLA Engineering group made an algorithm public that process images at high speeds and see them in ways that human eyes cannot. The code could be used to detect a face, a fingerprint or an iris recognition for security purposes also, can be used in autonomous cars’ navigation systems or for inspecting industrial products. The algorithm developed by a group of UCLA engineers which led by Bahram Jalali. Algorithm performs a mathematical operation which can able to identifies the edges and detects and extract every feature of the target. Also, can enhance images and recognize objects texture.

The algorithm is available for download from two open source website; Github and Matlab File Exchange. The reason for making the algorithm as open source, make the other programs work on the algorithm and make this system improve. The algorithm helped the team to find a new system which has been used for ultrafast imaging and detecting cancers cells in the blood (The Phase Stretch Transform algorithm ). The algorithm even can detect the images which can not able to scanned, for example, it can detect LED lamp’s internal structure, this would be helpful to see distant stars that not normally be visible in astronomical images.
