From light rays to 3D models

Accurate detection of dysmorphic nuclei using dynamic programming and supervised classification

A vast array of pathologies is typified by the presence of nuclei with an abnormal morphology. Dysmorphic nuclear phenotypes feature dramatic size changes or foldings, but also entail much subtler deviations such as nuclear protrusions called blebs. …

Robust and real-time hand detection and tracking in monocular video

In recent years, personal computing devices such as laptops, tablets and smartphones have become ubiquitous. Moreover, intelligent sensors are being integrated into many consumer devices such as eyeglasses, wristwatches and smart televisions. With …

Biological image analysis

In biological research images are extensively used to monitor growth, dynamics and changes in biological specimen, such as cells or plants. Many of these images are used solely for observation or are manually annotated by an expert. In this …

Efficient foreground detection for real-time surveillance applications

Biological image analysis of model organisms

Model organisms are perhaps the most important experimental subjects in biology nowadays. These specimens have characteristics such as short life cycles and compact genome sequences that make them suitable for a number of experimental techniques at …

Geometric uncertainty models for correspondence problems in digital image processing

Many recent advances in technology rely heavily on the correct interpretation of an enormous amount of visual information. All available sources of visual data (e.g. cameras in surveillance networks, smartphones, game consoles) must be adequately …
