Research IT Forum - Image Processing

Image Processing Techniques and Technology

About this event

The Research-IT forum is a regular event providing updates on developments relating to research computing covering research software, computational science, data science, qualitative and quantitative analysis and the management of research outputs. It is a forum where researchers can showcase their work in an environment conducive to creative discussion

This event will explore image processing at the University of Sheffield. As well as presenting an overview of the research topic, each of our speakers will discuss their image processing techniques. This can include; image generation, image comparison, image transformations, image registration, data extraction from images, image classification or image segmentation.

You can expect talks from:

Grant Bigg, Department of Geography

Michael Sharkey, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals

Steven Sourbron, Department of Infection, Immunity and Cardiovascular Disease

Suzana Silva, Department of Automatic Control & Systems Engineering

Vinh Q Vu, Solar Physics & Space Plasma Research Centre

Yimin Wang, Solar Physics & Space Plasma Research Centre

Alice Pyne, Department of Materials Science & Engineering

Nick Van Hateren, Department of Biomedical Science

Izzy Jayasinghe, Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology

Course in Deep Learning with Tensorflow in Python (02/11) or R (02/18)

  Recent advances in deep neural networks coupled with an increasing amount and complexity of scientific data collected in a wide array of domains provide many  exciting opportunities for deep learning applications in scientific settings  .  Furthermore, libraries such as Google’s Tensorflow and the higher-level  Keras  library have made building deep learning models more accessible through common tools freely available to researchers, including python & R. The Sheffield Research Software Engineering team is offering introductory courses to Deep Learning with Tensorflow  through two frameworks, python & R (& Keras). In the course, we’ll introduce some basic neural network and deep learning theory and give participants practical experience in some popular deep learning models and techniques. Content includes: Introduction to Regression and Classification using neural networks Image classification with Convolutional neural networks Speeding up the training process of your own

SIGHPC Computational and Data Science Fellowships

SIGHPC Computational and Data Science Fellowships are now open - Nominations close April 30. It's up to $15K per year for a student in a graduate (masters or PhD) program anywhere in the world. Please share!  ACM SIGHPC has created the Computational and Data Science Fellowships, a continuation of the program started with Intel to increase the diversity of students pursuing graduate degrees in data science and computational science. Specifically targeted at women or students from racial/ethnic backgrounds that have not traditionally participated in the computing field, the program is open to students pursuing degrees at institutions anywhere in the world. To qualify for a Computational & Data Science Fellowship, a student must be: Either currently enrolled in a graduate program or accepted to begin in one no later than October 15 Pursuing a graduate degree – Master’s, PhD, or equivalent – in computational or data science (although the formal name of the program may be somewhat d
