  Yoav Freund will be giving a talk this Friday, July 14 at 2:30pm in 
room 402 of the CS building.  Title and abstract follow below.


Title:   Using adaptive computer vision to analyze biomedical images
Speaker: Yoav Freund
         Computer Science and Engineering, University of California, San 
Date:    Friday, July 14, 2:30pm
Place:   Room 402, CS building
Host:    Rob Schapire


    The rapid advancement of biomedical imaging techniques such as
    fluorescence microscopy, non-linear optics, MRI and ultra-sound make
    it now possible to observe the time evolution of mechanical and
    biochemical processes in cells and in the human body at a resolution
    unimaginable a decade ago. This ability to measure opens up an
    incredible range of new possibilities for research in biology and in
    medicine.  However, a major challenge along the way is the
    formidable amount of manual work required to extract meaningful
    quantitative results from the enormous amounts of collected image data.

    I suggest a combination of computer vision and machine learning
    techniques to tackle such problems. In this talk I describe some of 
    my current work applying these ideas in several projects:

           1. The study of the dynamics of lamellipodia in spreading cells.
           2. The study of regulatory networks in the development of
              drosophila  embryos.
           3. Detection of protein micro-crystals for X-ray crystalography.
           4. Detection and grading of prostate cancer using microscope
              images  of biopsies.

    I will conclude with some of the lessons I have learned from these
    projects and some words on my current approach to automating image
    analysis tasks.
