Many computer vision algorithms have been successfully adapted and applied to biomedical imaging applications. However, biomedical computer vision is far beyond being only an application field. Indeed, it is a wide field with huge potential for developing novel concepts and algorithms and can be seen as a driving force for computer vision research. In this talk we emphasize this view of biomedical computer vision by considering a variety of biomedical imaging topics and exemplarily discussing challenges, the related concepts, techniques, and algorithms.
Xiaoyi Jiang studied Computer Science at Peking University and received his PhD and Venia Docendi (Habilitation) degree in Computer Science from University of Bern, Switzerland. He was an associate professor at Technical University of Berlin, Germany. Since 2002 he is a full professor of Computer Science at the University of Münster, Germany.
Currently, he is Editor-in-Chief of International Journal of Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence and also serves on the advisory board and editorial board of several journals including Pattern Recognition, IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics, and Chinese Science Bulletin. His research interests include biomedical image analysis, 3D image analysis, and structural pattern recognition. He is a PI of the new Cluster of Excellence “Cells in Motion” (http://www.uni-muenster.de/CiMIC/) funded by the German Excellence Initiative. He is a Senior Member of IEEE and Fellow of IAPR.
