Modality Independent Image Registration in Python

The task is straight-forward: implement a deformable image registration algorithm using the “Modality-Independent Neighborhood Descriptor” (http://mpheinrich.de/pub/MEDIA_mycopy.pdf) in pure python/numpy. Matlab reference implementation exists. What you should know: – Python & Numpy – Image processing basics What you should deliver: – An efficient and maintainable implementation (preferably with GPU support): should work on large images and … Continue reading Modality Independent Image Registration in Python

Deep Learning-based Forensic Writer Retrieval/Document Segmentation

Status: available Supervisor: Manuel Keglevic Why? Law enforcement agencies possess an extensive collection of handwritten documents. This includes for example documents belonging to open cases, for example death threats, and reference samples from suspects and prisoners. Yet, these collections of documents can only be utilized to a limited extend, since for an identification of an … Continue reading Deep Learning-based Forensic Writer Retrieval/Document Segmentation

Deep Learning-based Image Compression

Status: available Supervisors: Manuel Keglevic, Matthias Wödlinger Why? Traditional lossy image compression techniques like JPEG are pretty old and are honestly only used today because they are built-in in every device that can process images from your camera to your smart watch (and definitely your smart toaster). Since Deep Learning-based end-to-end solutions work pretty well … Continue reading Deep Learning-based Image Compression

Behaviour detection in a bathroom environment to assist people with dementia

Problem Statement Nursing staff members spend a lot of time on routine tasks, such as assisting in basic activities of daily living (toileting, bathing, transferring, grooming, etc.), ensuring the safety of patients, or walking tours and providing nursing care to their patients. The visit of a toilet is part of the daily routine, and takes … Continue reading Behaviour detection in a bathroom environment to assist people with dementia

Segmentation of houses in historical Maps

Supervisor: Florian Kleber, Simon Brenner Start: as soon as possible Problem Statement Historical maps contain a lot of information like land boundarys or outlines of buildings. To show the development of citys and different regions it is necessary to extract this information from historical maps. Within this work the main goal will be detect the … Continue reading Segmentation of houses in historical Maps

Non-woven Viscous Structures – robotic adaptive fabrication of functionally graded fibrous spatial networks

Status: open Research Overview The research addresses the investigation of Viscous Thread Instability (VTI) for the additive manufacturing of Functionally Graded Structures (FGS) at the architectural scale. The deposition of a thread of viscous material in space is an inherently unpredictable process, characterized by a high degree of instability non-linearity. Material instances of a similar … Continue reading Non-woven Viscous Structures – robotic adaptive fabrication of functionally graded fibrous spatial networks

Relation Detection: Image Similarity Measurement in Large Historical Archives

Status: available Supervisor: Daniel Helm, Martin Kampel Start: as soon as possible Problem Statement Automatic scene analysis is a crucial task for historians or film archivists in order to preserve and interpret the memories of human cultural history. Film archives include thousands of hours of digitized analog footage from the last 100 years up to … Continue reading Relation Detection: Image Similarity Measurement in Large Historical Archives

Historical Image Restoration: Deep learning-based versus traditional-based deformation strategies

Status: available Supervisor: Daniel Helm, Martin Kampel Start: as soon as possible Problem Statement Automatic video analysis in large historical film collections is a challenging task due to different aspects. One major challenge is related to the quality of historical films, e.g. over-, underexposures and blur. Furthermore, they include scratches, cracks or press cuts and … Continue reading Historical Image Restoration: Deep learning-based versus traditional-based deformation strategies
