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

Klassifizierung von Nachtfaltern

Status der Diplomarbeit: vergeben Betreuer: Sebastian Zambanini, Martin Kampel Problemstellung Nachtfalter sind eine Tiergruppe mit einer sehr hohen Biodiversität, die in vielen Regionen der Erde nicht vollständig erforscht ist. Methoden der Bildanalyse können eingesetzt werden, um die biologische Forschungsarbeit in diesem Bereich zu beschleunigen und zu unterstützen. Hierfür sind sowohl Methoden des überwachten als auch … Continue reading Klassifizierung von Nachtfaltern

Vehicle Detection in Satellite Videos

Status: available Supervisor: Roman Pflugfelder Problem Statement The robust detection of specific objects such as buildings, ships and road networks has been an important challenge in remote sensing and satellite image processing. Since 2014, a new generation of satellites allow to extend the number of object categories to smaller objects such as vehicles, aircraft and many … Continue reading Vehicle Detection in Satellite Videos

Layout Analysis and OCR of art exhibition catalogues

Status: open Supervisor: Markus Diem, Florian Kleber, Christina Bartosch (University of Vienna) Exhibition catalogues comprise information containing accompanying texts, name of the paintings, owner of the paintings, etc. An example image shown on this page illustrates a page of an catalogue comprising consecutive numbers, name of the paintings and owners, and the hall number. The … Continue reading Layout Analysis and OCR of art exhibition catalogues

Normalized Flowcytometry Representation of Blood Cell Populations of Children affected by Acute Leukaemia

Supervision Michael Reiter, Roxane Licandro Problem Statement Acute Leukaemia is a disease induce by genetic alterations of blood progenitor cells, which influences the blood generation process (haematopoiesis) and leads to the proliferation of undifferentiated (leukaemic) cells. Flow CytoMetry (FCM) measurements are used to reliably assess these cancer cells (blasts) and to quantify their ratio to … Continue reading Normalized Flowcytometry Representation of Blood Cell Populations of Children affected by Acute Leukaemia

Dermoscopic Image Analysis by Deep Learning

Status: available Supervisor: Michael Reiter, Christopher Pramerdorfer The purpose of this work is to classify sequences of dermatoscopy images as “changing” or “not changing”. The term “change” refers to a depicted mole or skin lesion, and a given sequence should be classified as “changing” if the depicted mole changes in a form that indicates  a tumor, not simply … Continue reading Dermoscopic Image Analysis by Deep Learning

Pattern Matching of Footwear Impressions

Status: available Supervisor: Manuel Keglevic Problem Statement One of the most frequently secured types of evidence at crime scenes are footware impressions. Identifying the brand and model of the footware can be crucial to narrowing the search for suspects. This is done by forensic experts by comparing the evidence found at the crime scene with … Continue reading Pattern Matching of Footwear Impressions

Document Layout Analysis for Newspapers

Status: open Supervisor: Markus Diem, Florian Kleber, Stefan Fiel Document layout analysis deals with the layout structure of document images, thus segmenting a page into homogeneous image regions. Within the project READ a framework for layout analysis is currently developed. The layout analysis allows to detect text regions (text lines, text blocks, etc.). The main … Continue reading Document Layout Analysis for Newspapers
