Applied Data Analysis and Image Processing, Simon Alexander, University of Houston, Wed, 1 July, 2009, 2:00 p.m. A-233
Signal and image processing give rise to many interesting data mining applications and decision problems, involving a broad range of mathematics. Â In this talk I will discuss some recent work in medical image processing. Medical applications arising generate interesting (and often complex) data sets and in turn modeling and decision making questions. Â Model building for data representation and analysis leads to problems of cluster analysis,Â segmentation, optimization of energy functions, automated classification and decision. Â I will present a quality control solution for an ubiquitous tool of nano-medicine namely the production of silicon chips each carrying vast numbers of nano-scale pores. I will also discuss medical modeling of organs by 3D-image analysis, in the case of Mitral Valve functional diagnosis.
