Recent Advances in Digital Image Classification

Abstract of Talk:

Digital images introduced big changes in the world. Besides using digital images in everyday life, they became an irreplaceable part of numerous scientific areas such as medicine, security, agriculture, etc. One of the usual tasks in applications with digital images is digital image classification. Great progress in solving this task was made in recent years by convolutional neural networks. Convolutional neural networks represent a special class of deep neural networks that take a spatial correlation of input data into consideration. The results achieved by CNN are significantly better in comparison with the other classification methods. To use a CNN for a specific classification problem it is necessary to find the optimal network architecture and set various hyperparameters such as the number of different layers, number of neurons in each layer, optimization algorithm, activation functions, kernel size, optimization algorithm, etc. Frequently, CNN’s configuration is based on some previous experience or knowledge or set by guessing and estimating (guestimating) better values for the hyperparameters. Recent studies achieved promising results when using swarm intelligence algorithms for CNN’s hyperparameters tuning. A few examples of using swarm intelligence algorithms for convolutional neural network hyperparameter tuning will be presented.

Intelligent Biomedical Image Analysis

Abstract of Talk:

Medical image segmentation is the part of computer vision and its target is to label each pixel of an object of interest in medical images. An end to end deep learning approach, Convolutional Neural Networks have shown state-of-the-art performance for automated medical image segmentation. However, it doesn’t perform well in case of complex environments. U-Net is another popular deep learning architecture especially for biomedical imaging. In this talk, a concise overview of the modern deep learning model applied in computer vision specifically in medical image analysis is provided and the key tasks performed by deep learning model, i.e., classification and segmentation are shown. Furthermore, we will discuss the thoroughly evaluated deep learning framework for segmentation of arbitrary medical image volumes. Our discussed framework requires no human interaction, no task-specific information, and is based on a fixed model topology and a fixed hyper parameter set.
