About the speakers
Prof. Daniel Rückert: Deep learning for medical image reconstruction, segmentation and analysis
This talk will discuss deep learning approaches for the reconstruction, super-resolution and segmentation of Magnetic Resonance (MR) images. In particular, we will show how information about the shape of the anatomy can be incorporated as prior knowledge into these deep learning approaches. In addition, we show how shape and motion information can be used to develop interpretable deep learning approaches for diagnosis and prognosis.

He has published more than 500 journal and conference articles as well as graduated over 50 Ph.D students. Professor Rueckert is an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging, a member of the editorial board of Medical Image Analysis, Image & Vision Computing, MICCAI/Elsevier Book Series, and a referee for a number of international medical imaging journals and conferences. He has served as a member of organising and programme committees at numerous conferences, e.g. he has been General Co-chair of MMBIA 2006 and FIMH 2013 as well as Programme Co-Chair of MICCAI 2009, ISBI 2012 and WBIR 2012. In 2014, he has been elected as a Fellow of the MICCAI society and in 2015 he was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and as fellow of the IEEE. More recently has been elected as Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences (2019). He has received an ERC Synergy Grant (2013) and an ERC Advanced Grant (2020)l Since 2020 he is Alexander von Humboldt Professor for AI at the Technical University of Munich where he holds chair for AI in Medicine and Healthcare. He also remains a Professor at Imperial College London.
Dr. Georgios Kaissis: What we (really) need
The increasingly widespread utilisation of artificial intelligence algorithms in medical imaging and the requirements for large and diverse datasets for their training mandate innovations in the fields of data acquisition and curation, algorithmic interpretability and privacy preservation to allow for the clinical translation of algorithm results, as well as the sustainable utilisation of patient data in limited trust multi-institutional environments.
This talk will present new techniques for increasing image data quality and artifact resistance, results from oncological imaging analysis as well as an overview of next-generation privacy-preserving artificial intelligence techniques.
Dr Georgios Kaissis, MHBA is a senior postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology and the Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Data Science in Healthcare and Medicine at the Technical University of Munich, the Department of Computing at Imperial College London and a research scientist at Open Mined.
His research is centred around biomedical image analysis with a focus on oncologic imaging, probabilistic methods, human-computer interaction and next-generation privacy-preserving machine learning methods.
Cristina Piazza, Ph.D: Soft Robotics Technologies for Upper Limb Prostheses: Present and Future Avenues in Design and Control
The increasinglSince the 16th century, science and engineering have endeavored to match the richness and complexity of the human hand sensory-motor system. State of art of modern prosthetic hands is rich of advanced poly-articular devices designed to match the appearance and functions of human hands through the ingenious combinations of multiple motors. Unfortunately, despite notable advances in technology and research, the function of prosthetic hands and the satisfaction of users still remain low.
In the last decade novel theories and technologies, e.g. soft robotics and the simplification of the mechanical design, suggest a new promising direction towards the next generation of high technologic bionic aids.
This talk aims to exploit the potential of these emerging trends and proposes new strategies to optimize the performance of a prosthetic hand, achieving a useful trade-off between grasping performance and mechanical design/control complexity.
Cristina Piazza is currently Post Doc Fellow at the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Northwestern University, Chicago, IL (USA) and the Regenstein Foundation Center for Bionic Medicine, Shirley Ryan Ability Lab (Former Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago), Chicago, IL (USA). She received a M.S. in Automation and Robotics Engineering (2015) and a Ph.D in Robotics (cum laude, 2019), from the University of Pisa, Italy. In 2017, she was a Visiting Ph.D student of the Regenstein Foundation Center for Bionic Medicine, Shirley Ryan Ability Lab, USA. Her main research interests include the design and control of soft artificial limbs for robotic and prosthetic applications. She has also experience in designing and conducting clinical trials with amputee subjects.
New comers and returners
Benjamin Busam joins the Chair for Computer Aided Medical Procedures at TUM as a Senior Research Scientist after being affiliated as a Guest Researcher since 2014. Formerly Head of Research at FRAMOS Imaging Systems, he led the 3D Computer Vision Team at Huawei Research, London for the past two years. Benjamin studied Mathematics at the Technical University of Munich. In his subsequent postgraduate programme, he continued in Mathematics and Physics at ParisTech?
, France and at the University of Melbourne, Australia, before he graduated with distinction at TU Munich in 2014. In continuation to a mathematical focus on projective geometry and 3D point cloud matching, he now works on 2D/3D computer vision for pose estimation, depth mapping and mobile AR as well as multi-modal sensor fusion. For his work on adaptable high-resolution real-time stereo tracking he received the EMVA Young Professional Award 2015 from the European Machine Vision Association. Benjamin was recently awarded Huawei Future Star and Innovation Pioneer of the year 2019 by Noah's Ark Laboratory, London.
I was born and grew up in Tehran. I studied Musik at the University of Art in Tehran, then I came to Germany -- Weimar for further study at the Franz Liszt University of Music (not finished). Then I came to Munich and completed my Bachelor and Masters in Computer Science at LMU. I have been a CAMPER for ca. 4 years.
In this talk I'm going to introduce myself, talk about my previous work and my plans for my Phd.
The thesis will be about object detection on camera plus depth data, with focus on pedestrian detection will be addressed.
Within it, there are four sub-topics that will be researched:
(1) Simultaneous object detection, tracking and prediction by employing several time instances as input.
(2) Efficient fusion of raw data from multiple sensors (such as cameras and LIDARs).
(3) Handling of training data when sensor changes take place, with means of Transfer Learning.
(4) Effects on adversarial attacks and/or sensor performance drop when using Lidar sensors.
