Towards Fully Automated Interpretation of Volumetric Medical Images

Master's Defense
Speaker Name
Rachel Draelos
Location
LSRC D344
Date and Time
-

Computed tomography (CT) is a medical imaging technique used for the diagnosis and management of numerous conditions, including cancer, fractures, and infections. Automated interpretation of CT scans using machine learning holds immense promise: it may accelerate the radiology workflow, bring radiology expertise to underserved areas, and reduce missed diagnoses caused by human error.

From Visual Recognition to Visual Understanding

Duke Computer Science Colloquium
Speaker Name
Laurens van der Maaten
Location
LSRC D106
Date and Time
-
This talk gives an overview of some of our recent work on visual recognition and visual understanding. The first part of the talk considers visual recognition. It presents results of experiments in which we train convolutional networks on billions of weakly supervised web images. The second part of the talk raises the question whether recent successes in visual recognition also pave the way towards visual understanding.

The Battle of Internet Censorship: Bridging the Gap Between Theory and Practice
