Marie Curie Fellowship awarded to Cristina Simon-Martinez!

Cristina Simon-Martinez has been awarded a prestigious Individual Fellowship of the Marie Curie Actions, funded by the European Union, for the project Optimizing Vision reHABilition with virtual-reality games in pediatric amblyopia (V-HAB). The grant lasts for 2 years and offers exciting new learning opportunities, also contributing to the training, networking and research costs of the fellow. With this grant, Cristina will study the impact of vision deficits on cognition and motor control in children with pediatric amblyopia and will use virtual reality as a means to reduce those deficits.

Presentation of Vincent Andrearczyk at MMM2020

Vincent Andrearczyk presented our work on exploiting images from public biomedical literature for machine learning at the 26th international conference on MultiMedia Modelling (MMM2020) in Daejeon, Korea.

Full details of the paper: “Studying Public Medical Images from the Open Access Literature and Social Networks for Model Training and Knowledge Extraction” by Henning Müller, Vincent Andrearczyk, Oscar Jimenez del Toro, Anjani Dhrangadhariya, Roger Schaer and Manfredo Atzori.

Invited talk of Valentin Oreiller at the 2019 Workshop on Machine Learning in Radiology

Valentin Oreiller gave an invited talk on “Learning with less data: Parametric and Locally Rotation Invariant CNNs” at the Workshop on Machine Learning in Radiology 2019 in CHUV (Centre Hospitalier Universaire Vaudois), Lausanne.

This workshop, co-organized by CHUV Department of Radiology and Siemens Healthineers Advanced Clinical Imaging Technology, gathered national and international researchers for discussions and talks on the use of machine learning with radiology data, and how these techniques can benefit clinical practice.
