Generative Adversarial Nets (GANs) for the Enhancement of Ancient Manusctripts

Status: available Supervisor: Simon Brenner Problem Statement Multispectral Imaging (MSI) has proven a powerful tool to recover degraded texts in historic manuscripts. In this context, the goal of image enhancement methods is to take the raw multispectral images as input and produce and output image with maximal visibility/legibility of a degraded text. Fig. 1 shows … Continue reading Generative Adversarial Nets (GANs) for the Enhancement of Ancient Manusctripts

3D Surface Structures of Ancient Manuscripts

Status: available Supervisor: Simon Brenner Problem Statement Naturally, historic manuscripts are valuable sources of information. However, not only the letters and drawings made with ink and pigments hold information, but also the three-dimensional structure of the material itself. Examples of interesting features are ruling lines or textual comments drawn with a hard tool (“hard point … Continue reading 3D Surface Structures of Ancient Manuscripts

Raiders of the Lost Writings – Investigating Ancient Manuscripts

Status: availableSupervisor: Simon Brenner Before continuing to read we strongly recommend to let this play in the background: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bTpp8PQSog Introduction Uncountable ancient manuscripts lie in archives, libraries, monastaries and haunted tombs around the world. Unfortunately, the centuries took their toll: due to unsuitable storage conditions, fire- or water damage, clumsy librarians or the recycling of … Continue reading Raiders of the Lost Writings – Investigating Ancient Manuscripts

Neuroimaging in Pigs

Supervision Georg Langs, Yason Yee, Karl-Heinz Nenning The Institute of Animal Welfare Science at the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna (Vetmeduni) is currently offering a short-term research opportunity for motivated students. The candidate should be motivated to learn computational methods for the analysis of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data of the brain in pigs. Project … Continue reading Neuroimaging in Pigs

Detection, Segmentation and Tracking of Cells

Status: available Supervisor: Roman Pflugfelder There is the opportunity for a payment by Problem Statement Cell detection and cell tracking are important tasks in bioimaging. Bioimaging is currently radically transforming microbiology as terabytes of image data of modern microscopy needs an automatic or semi-automatic approach to efficient experimentation. With the advent of a new revolutionary gene … Continue reading Detection, Segmentation and Tracking of Cells

Object Tracking with Non-Traditional Cameras

Status: available Supervisor: Robert Sablatnig and Roman Pflugfelder Problem Statement Visual tracking has been tackled conceptually in terms of the underlying subproblems of visual description and correspondence of objects rather independent of the camera. However, visual tracking has less been seen technically in terms of available sensors and computational resources. Modern sensors have remarkable abilities e.g. CMOS windowing, … Continue reading Object Tracking with Non-Traditional Cameras

Deep Visual Tracking

Status: available Supervisor: Roman Pflugfelder Problem Statement Visual tracking is a foundational building block in almost every application from cell tracking in bioimaging, to object perception in robotic systems, to localisation in user-centric computing. Visual tracking is fascinating as it is unsolved, it is hard as it combines several difficult problems such as visual representation, adaptation … Continue reading Deep Visual Tracking

Automatic Triage of Photo Collections

Status: taken Supervisor: Sebastian Zambanini Problem Statement Photo triage is the process of grouping similar photos of a large collection and finally selecting the most preferred one in each group. Especially the selection of “the” best photo of a group is challenging as the relevant image features are not obvious to identify and heavily scene-dependent. … Continue reading Automatic Triage of Photo Collections

Person Detection and Data Diversity

Status: available Supervisor: Roman Pflugfelder Problem Statement Visual person detection is a foundational building block in almost every application from pedestrian detection in surveillance and autonomous driving, to person perception in robotic systems, to human localisation in user-centric computing. Person or pedestrian detection has made a significant leap in the last years, by re-discovering the … Continue reading Person Detection and Data Diversity
