Image analysis to help diagnose and understand disease and provide food for everyone.

In the Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis Unit we develop image analysis algorithms that are capable of identifying patterns in multidimensional and multimodal imaging data arising in several natural and life science applications. We develop state-of-the-art computer vision, machine learning, and data mining algorithms to analyze such data for the purpose of computer aided diagnosis in medicine and for phenotyping applications. Our uniqueness is that we develop such solutions in distributed environments (such as cloud computing) to handle the large amount of data and deal with the complexity of the problem. Finally, we also develop new compression algorithms that take advantage of automated analysis to further reduce the amount of data that are transferred across the networks.

Within our web pages, you will find descriptions of our various research interests as well as a list of publications. Additionally, we are providing links to the people in the lab and a variety of methods to contact and locate us.

We would like to acknowledge our collaborators, and sponsors and supporters of our research program.
