Research Topics

Associated with Inria Saclay, the Centre de Vision Numérique, created in 2011, is at the intersection between mathematics and computer science. It is in search of mathematical models and their IT solutions for automatic structuring, interpreting and understanding big (visual) data with a focus on machine learning, computer vision and discrete models in biomedical image analysis.

Computer Vision

Image reconstruction, border detection, segmentation with or without modeling, flow estimation and monitoring, image analysis, object recognition and large-scale 3D modeling based on a grammar

Machine Learning and Optimization

Self-learning, probabilistic graphical models, multiple instance learning, structured output regression, kernel methods, and multitask, online, or transfer learning, etc.

Biomedical Image Analysis (GALEN-Inria team)

Compressed reconstruction and detection, tumor detection, organ segmentation, image registration and deformable fusion, longitudinal modeling of organs, virtual anatomy, population studies and understanding of the brain, etc.

The Center of Visual Computing of CentraleSupelec & Inria, Saclay, Ile-de-France, organized a summer school in Biomedical Image Analysis: Modalities, Methodologies & Clinical Research at the Institut Henri Poincaré at the heart of Paris. This was an official event of the Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention Society (MICCAI). Please find out all the lectures given for this special event.
