Two PhD positions in Computerized Image Processing and Bioinformatics - Sweden
- You will join the recently started interdisciplinary research project Hierarchical Analysis of Spatial and Temporal Data within the research groups.
- The HASTE project that will run for 5 years with funding from the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF) and aims at developing new, intelligent ways of processing and managing very large amounts of microscopy images in order to be able to leverage the imminent explosion of image data from modern experimental setups in the bio sciences.
- One central idea is to represent data sets as intelligently formed and maintained information hierarchies, and to prioritize data acquisition and analysis to certain regions/sections of data based on automatically obtained metrics for usefulness and interestingness.
- To arrive at such smart systems for scientific discovery in image data, we will pursue a range of topics such as efficient data mining in image data, machine learning models with quantifiable confidence that learn an object’s interestingness, and development of intelligent and efficient cloud systems capable of mapping data and compute to a variety of cloud computing and data storage e-infrastructure based on the quality and interestingness of the data.
