I have been selected (again) as a Clarivate Analytics Highly Cited Researcher

I have been selected (again) as a 2018 Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thompson-Reuters) Highly Cited Researcher. This list contains about 3500 scientists in various disciplines which represent the top 1% in their respective fields. Interestingly, only 16 of this list are from Israel, and I am the only Israeli representing the sub-field "Engineering". More on this list can be found here.

I am happy to bring to your attention a new Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)

I am happy to bring to your attention a new Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) that Yaniv Romano (my PhD student) and I have constructed on Sparse Representations. Here is the link under the edX webpage. This course will open formally on October 25th this year. It is built of two 5 weeks parts, the first presents the basic theoretical ideas of sparse representations, and the other connects this model to applications in image processing. In this course we are essentially following the content of my book. We will be delighted to see you joining our course, which could provide you with a pleasant introduction to our field.
