14.00 - 15.00: Inaugural Lecture: From pixels to knowledge - Registering the big picture in data science
Abstract: Modern imaging devices such as microscopes and synchrotrons provide data which are often too big and too complex for humans to
Developing programs to
Microscope images are of particular interest to me since an increasing number of different microscope techniques are being developed which produce views of structures at
Further, since the images vary greatly in appearance and quality, techniques from computer vision and medical image processing are only partially applicable. Often improvements of existing or invention of new algorithms are required, which I find a great source of inspiration.
In this talk, I demonstrate how image analysis is used for statistical models of ultrastructures in nerve cells and I will give examples of how we have improved existing and developed new algorithms for image analysis.
