|227-0449-00L||Seminar in Biomedical Image Computing||1 credit||2S||E. Konukoglu, B. Menze, M. A. Reyes Aguirre|
|Abstract||This is a seminar lecture focusing on recent research topics in biomedical image computing, machine learning techniques related to interpreting biomedical images and medical data in general. Every week a different topic will be presented and discussed.|
|Objective||The goal of this lecture is to provide a glimpse of the current research landscape to graduate students who are interested in working on biomedical image computing and related areas. Different topics will be covered by different speakers every week to provide a broad perspective and highlight current challenges. Every week students will be asked to read a paper, prepare discussion questions and participate in the discussion. Upon completion of this course, students will have a broad overview of the recent developments in biomedical image computing and ability to critically discuss a scientific article.|
|Prerequisites / Notice||Knowledge in computer vision, machine learning and biomedical image analysis would be essential.|
