Summary

 

Image Processing - BE3-HIPR

Aims

  • To provide students with a substantial introduction to digital image processing relevant to image analysis.
  • To provide students with appreciation of aspects of computation in interpreting or “parsing” images
  • To introduce students to some of the biomedical, clinical and research applications of image processing and computer vision.

Role

Course Leader

Biomimetics - BE9-MBMIME

Aims

Mankind has always mimicked nature. Fishing nets, airplane wings, sonar, computer viruses, and artificial intelligence are just a few of a long list of examples where nature has inspired technological applications. But many functional principles developed during evolution still remain to be discovered. Understanding these principles may help scientists and engineers to solve outstanding technological problems.

Biomimetics is a new interdisciplinary field that is quickly growing and seeks to explore, appreciate, and make use of nature's solutions at different organizational scales ranging from molecular to systems levels. The aim of this course is to offer an introduction into biomimetics as an inspiration for novel emerging technologies.

The course will be taught in a modular form where each module covers a distinct theme that will include two lectures complemented by a journal club.

As a key feature of the course that diverges from the traditional lecture style will be that the first (introductory) and last (concluding) lecture will be taught by both course organizers (AK and HGK). This will be done in an interactive way, where expectations of students, immediate questions, and discussions on the general level are encouraged. It would (i) enable the organizers to convey an overarching framework for a quite diverse repertoire of examples and (ii) should emphasize common design principles in nature.

Each lecturer will introduce their theme with reference to the general structure of the course and to material provided in earlier lectures of their colleagues. Similarly, when concluding a topic, a link will be drawn to related topics or principles whatever is appropriate.

Role

Lecturer

Signals and Control  - BE2-HSCL

Aims

To introduce the foundations of signal processing and linear systems analysis, with a clear focus on achieving an intuitive understanding of the main mathematical descriptions that are used, and the reasons for their use.  Significant time is also spent on explaining the applications of signal processing, in biomedical applications, medical imaging, and elsewhere.

To give the mathematical basis of linear control systems analysis, which is used in many fields of (bio)engineering. Examples from bioengineering and robotics are also provided. This part of the course is composed of lectures, tutorials and Matlab practicals. The concepts are typically introduced in the lectures, while solving the exercices in the tutorials and practicals is necessary to fully grasp the concepts and become able to use the learned techniques.
