Research Associate (f/m/d)
Deep learning segmentation for biomedical imaging using interactive and active learning


Laboratorium für Applikationen der Synchrotronstrahlung (LAS)

Ihre Aufgaben

We are seeking a highly motivated person (f/m/d) to join our applied deep learning team and contribute to the development of state-of-the-art segmentation methods.

The successful candidate (f/m/d) will have the opportunity to work on cutting-edge research in the field of Deep learning (DL) applied to X-ray Computed Tomography (CT) data.

The goal of the project is to extend existing software and supervised semantic segmentation with interactive and active learning. Semantic image segmentation is a labor-intensive and time-consuming task that requires manual annotation by experts. Therefore, the use of interactive and active learning methods can significantly reduce the amount of manual annotation. Interactive learning involves human interaction with the learning algorithm, where the user provides feedback to the DL model to improve its performance. The user can review the annotations and correct any errors, which can be used to retrain the model and improve its accuracy. Active learning involves selecting the most informative samples from a large pool of unannotated data to maximize the learning efficiency. Combining interactive and active learning methods can further enhance the efficiency of semantic image segmentation.

Your tasks within the project:

  • Review state-of-the-art approaches for interactive and active learning
  • Implement the selected approaches
  • Integrate the devised models into the segmentation software and workflows
