Workshop - Deep Learning in Imaging Sciences

July 19-20, 2018 - Innsbruck

The development of fast and accurate algorithms is a central mathematical aspect of image reconstruction. Examples include various kinds of medical imaging applications, compressed sensing, deconvolution, or super-resolution microscopy. Recently, a new class of algorithms based on deep learning for such type of problems appeared. With deep learning, image reconstruction is performed by artificial neural networks, whose weights can be adjusted to appropriate training data. While still in their infancy, these techniques already show astonishing performance.

In this workshop, leading experts will report on recent progress towards using deep learning for various imaging applications.
